    They are great shooting guns super accurate.

    My wife has my old de50. Wish I still had my original 357mag version.

    I've always wanted one in .357 Magnum but could never justify the price. I wouldn't pass up trying one if I could.

    Probably not. For me, too impractical and expensive.

    Yeah, well this is my second eagle and believe it or not, I was lucky enough to get them each around the $400-$500 range so a total of $900 which is still less than the price of one usually

    That's actually a terrific price. If I found one for that amount, and I had the money to blow, and there were no other firearms I was more interested in at the time, I'd prolly do it.

    But that's about the only situation in which I'd buy one. I dunno, I'm sure they're real fun to shoot on the range, but its hard for me to get past the impracticality and looks of them.

    Is the gun you showed an airsoft gun? Because the real Desert Eagle has 2 little port things on the bottom of the barrel where it meets the frame, yours does not.

    Here is a picture I found on the Internet showing the port things.

    Would love to have one,
    couldn't afford to feed it though.
    Shot the 50 cal. in Vegas at the old Survival Store.
    Great fun.
    Practical? no but who cares.

    It looks a little too flush. And the color is too matte and polymer looking.

    If you're in Australia, where airsoft is banned, then what was the picture in the "anyone selling sights suitable for m4 a1" thread, because that was clearly an airsoft gun, I can tell it is because the buffer tube is one of the clip on type stocks that they put on airsoft guns, and there was no castle nut. Also, regular civilians cannot own ar15's in australia, nor can they own mags over 10 rounds- which the ar in the picture had.
