Default desert eagle

How can you reduce the recoil on a desert eagle significantly or if not just slightly (parts, accesories, etc....)

Lower powered ammo, but then you run into reliability issues

Better grips might help a bit and maybe have it ported.

you cant really. it needs the full power loads to function.

ive had a DE in my collection since 1986 starting with their 357 magnum. if yours is a 50 get the conversion to 44 if its a 44 get the 357 kit. the 44 conversion has about the same felt recoil as a 1911 and the 357 version is about like a weak M9 berreta fullsize. if you cant handle the 357 version i suggest selling it for a different gun

i regret trading my 357 desert eagle for the 50AE. it was a very very fast shooting gun with almost no muzzle flip.

I am sure you have a reason for wanting to reduce recoil, but why would you buy a hi power hand gun and then try and de-tune it? There are lots of other hand guns that have less recoil (felt) and will serve just as good as DE. IMO DE are range toys (REALLY cool range toys I might add), but serve little other purpose, although I do some people that hunt with them. I'm not bashing, just curious.

Trade iot for a .500 S&W with muzzle brake, and load lower powered ammo????.

JonM said all the important stuff. My DE44 is a range-fun/hunting

caliber match for a .44 Marlin carbine.

Bear in mind if you reduce recoil, you're going to also reduce power

at the target, and it seems overly expensive to buy a cannon, and

reduce it to a lighter gun...

Wouldn't a Beretta 96, or 92, be more sensible at the outset?

Lower power ammo won't work well in a DE44 or DE50. Been there, done that,

sorry.

Assuming it's the .50 Dessert Eagle there isn't really much you can do to soften the blow. Grips will help a little, porting it "MIGHT" help a little, weaker ammo might help but you're giving up power. There are several small adjustments you can make but at the end of the day a .50 caliber handgun is a very powerful gun with a lot of recoil. If you take a 100 pound boat anchor and paint it pink is is only going to be a pink 100 pound boat anchor.
