Manufactured by Israeli Military Industries, for Magnum Research. A Gas-operated massive motherfucker.

Generally known to be one of the most powerful pistols available today, the Desert Eagle has obscene stopping power. Coming in .357, .41 .44 Magnum, .50 Action Express and .440 Cor-Bon calibres, the Desert Eagle fires big-bore rounds. Popularized by films, television and video-games, e.g. Half-Life Counter-Strike, the Desert Eagle is in fact avoided by everyone from counter-terrorism squads to terrorists themselves. It is about twice as heavy as the average pistol and approaches 11 inches in length - a normal pistol is about 6-7 inches. The Desert Eagle has considerable recoil and its only real use is sport-hunting, due to its single-shot accuracy, and sheer power - it could probably stop a bear dead in its tracks. The .50AE, is half an inch in calibre and weighs 'only' about 19 grammes. It's relatively slow, however, which severely impacts on its performance as a longer-range weapon.
Only men of Arnold Schwarzenegger's physique can truly handle the Desert Eagle, especially when chambered in .50 Action Express.

Sex move. While conducting intercourse on beach (or other sandy location), male who is penetrating woman dips his penis in sand and continues the act of intercourse...as long as possible. AKA The Breaded Pork Chop.
I was beating up that sideways smile on the beach, and I actually pulled off the Desert Eagle.

The single greatest handgun ever made. God himself always carried one in each hand, infact Jesus and Muhammed both carried Deagles with them at all times. Even Buddha had a Deagle lying around, therefore, it is the greatest thing ever made ever and will never not be the greatest because it is.
Oh noes, our AWPs and scouts and guns that aren't deagles are no match for the awesomeness of Desert Eagle /die
