Desert Eagle -- My Dream Weapon

    The Desert Eagle is a  very popular  hand-gun which is renowned for its accuracy, power , reliability in battle-field and high effective range among hand-guns. A typical hand-gun has a range of 30-35 yards whereas desert eagle has a maximum effective  range of 200 meters (Mark XIX version).

        The Desert Eagle is a large-framed gas-operated semi-automatic pistol designed by Magnum Research in the U.S., and manufactured primarily in Israel by IMI (Israel Military Industries, now Israel Weapon Industries). The Desert Eagle has been featured in roughly 500 motion pictures and TV films.

        The Desert Eagle uses a gas-operated mechanism normally found in rifles. Unlike most such pistols, the barrel does not move during firing. When a round is fired, gases are ported out through a small hole in the barrel near the breech. These travel forward through a small tube under the barrel, to a cylinder near the front of the barrel. The separate bolt carrier/slide has a small piston on the front that fits into this cylinder; when the gases reach the cylinder they push the piston rearward. The bolt carrier rides rearward on two rails on either side of the barrel, operating the mechanism. Its rotating bolt strongly resembles that of the M16 series of rifles, while the fixed gas cylinder/moving piston resemble those of the Ruger Mini-14 carbine (the original patent used a captive piston similar to the M14 rifle).

       Switching a Desert Eagle to another chamber  requires only that the correct barrel, bolt assembly, and magazine be installed. Thus, a conversion to fire the other cartridges can be quickly accomplished. The Desert Eagle is fed with a detachable magazine. Magazine capacity is 9 rounds in .357 Magnum, 8 rounds in .44 Magnum, and 7 rounds in .50 AE. The Desert Eagle's barrel features polygonal rifling. The pistol is mainly used for hunting, target shooting, and silhouette shooting.
    Desert Eagle is my favorite weapon I don't posses one. I plan to buy it someday for my personal collection. What is yours?? You prefer assault rifles or pistols?? 

with warm regards
