.50 BMG Desert Eagle

Now this is a Desert Eagle I would buy… if for nothing else, the sheer insanity of it.

I’d also have to get several novelty “Man Cards” made up to give to those who would attempt to shoot in one handed.

Perhaps you’d like to explain how it functions then.

Sure:

The magazine holds the cartridges, I don’t know how many but any more than two is truly remarkable for this calibre. Next you load up the magazine and slide it in to the handle grip. Rack the slide back manually – or if you load correctly it is already locked in the back position. Moving the slide forward (actually the spring inside moves it for you at this point) takes the top cartridge from the magazine and holds it in place, with the bullet in the barrel ready to fire. The sliding back of the slide also “primes” the firing pin / pulls the hammer back. Once the cartridge is correctly chambered the hammer / pin will strike the cartridge primer when the trigger is fully pulled.

Once the hammer is pulled the primer is hit by either the firing pin or the hammer – depending on design – and the bullet is fired from the gun. This causes recoil which, in most pistols of this nature, is used to move the slide back again, ejecting the empty cartridge case while simultaneously cocking the hammer / “priming” the firing pin for the next shot! Ingenious! A spring on the inside of the slide then moves the slide forward again, loading the next cartridge.

Some firearms do not use the recoil but instead capture some of the gas created by the gunpowder / smokeless powder in the cartridge. These are referred to as gas operated or blow back mechanisms. Recoil operated ones are referred to as recoil operated… for rather obvious reasons.

This particular Desert Eagle manages to be even more laughable than it’s amazingly smaller brothers (Deagles are BIG) because the .50 BMG is a very large calibre rifle cartridge. Even by other large rifle cartridge standards (.30-06, 7.62x54R for example) this things is BIG. To put it in to a pistol is silly to begin with, but a single-shot pistol or two do exist that… almost… bring the cartridge into the world of plausible usefulness in a pistol frame. This monstrosity with its magazine feed is quite simply a terrible joke. It exists because it can. Using this is going to end very badly, even for a very experienced shooter.

This is how it functions :)

You asked for an explanation to how it functions. He took the time to give you as much information as he could, and now you’re denying it. Bah… Typical Americans…

How could you even remotely know that he was American? He didn’t deny anything either. So shut your mouth and get off this site.

I’ve lived in America long enough to know they go like “what the fuck you liar” when offered extended explanations, such as the one above. I’m not sure what to say about the second sentence, though. However, I’d gladly abandon this site if I receive no more replies.
By the way, congrats on becoming one of the idiots that baffle me with their lack of sense and thinking capability. Have a great day infecting the rest of the Internet with your stupidity.

They should have used a pic of the 10″ barrelled version – you might actually be able to ream out a ‘chamber’ and have something of a barrel left. It would probably end up as straight-pull only though!

Brilliant! The 50 AE version is way too small for most self defense and hunting needs. Glad to see they finally stepped up to the big 50!

Encircled October 5, 2010 at 10:39 am

mmh, maybe they should try to put some grenade-like stuff in it…or…some cruise missiles? no wait…what about a desert eagle that shoots aircraft carriers!

But no seriously, I don’t see this as any less practical that the original.

Well, if it IS real, how does it eject a round that long through a .50 AE ejection port?
Good photoshop though, especially since nobody noticed the notch on the slide should be further forward

eric October 15, 2012 at 11:36 pm

Brass ejecting is not a problem. As round leaves barrel, brass is forced out through firing pin hole. Physics, dude. Read a book.

Reply

Nick June 1, 2014 at 11:14 pm

How would it go through the firing pin hole?

Man, you are redicilous.
Befor sayaing stupid thing like thet, just take the time to GOGGLE-IT a little bie (GOOGLE-IT min to go on GOOGLE, the website and do some research)

Yeah, the guys over at IMI (being the amateur rookie gunbuilders they are) decided theyd make a pistol that you cant fit your hand around….all who say this is real are dumb fucks…try and find a different picture of the .50 “BMG” deag…you wont its only that same pic all over the net

Also useful if you have to deal with multiple attackers, say twenty of them. Provided they are all lined up in a row of course. Could happen.

Ethan April 19, 2014 at 07:17 pm

Hah, this is pretty good, It did spark innovation to actually want to make a Rifle that Sports the “look” of the desert eagle, probably in .357, .44Mag, 440 Corbon, 50AE, 500 S&W Mag. And some odd rifle calibers such as the 25WSSM, 7.92x33Kurz, 450 bush master, 50 Beowolf, perhaps a few others.

This is fake!
Look at the slide “stop arm” and the slide stop hole…
The .50 BMG is longer than this gun ejector capacity.

You must be new here. Writing something like that isn’t a direct attack against anyone, no matter whom they may be. Do yourself a favour and start a thread in 4chan(.org)’s /b/ (Random) section about what you find offensive. Reach 30 replies in any way possible, and then come back here. Until then, I’ve no reason to speak with you.
