The Deagle operates through a gas blowback system that throws the bolt back to eject the shell and load a new one. Although many think it has a tremendous kick, they would be wrong. The kick of a DE loaded with a .357 is said to be similar to a .22, and although a .50 is a lot more power, it is still manageable. The DE was originally chambered for the .357 round back in 1983.
The DE exists today more as a target gun and a show piece then an actual law enforcement weapon, a more suitable choice for law enforcement would be the IMI Jericho. The Jericho is chambered in both the 9mm round and the 40 S&W, the only exemption being the 941FS, which can also be chambered for the .45ACP round.
Either my nieghbor is watching the Matrix with the sound cranked, or someone is firing a Deagle!
Counterstrike gamers call the Desert Eagle "Deagle".
A short history of the deagle
The term was originally created as nickname. It soon became apparent that deagles forte was the ability to make the most hilarious joke, a cringe worthy moment. one night, when the lads were round, deagle lived up to his reputation time and time again. And so it became necessary to invent a term for these embarrassing moments. the term was used that night and it has stuck ever since. There have been some adaptations such as pointing the gun at a suspected deagler.
