i don't own one, but have shot a desert eagle in 44mag and 50ae. i really doubt that 8 shots inside a second is even possible for the gun, needless the operator. the cycling of the slide after every shot would eat up more than a second.

Only if you polish the sear so that the pistol goes into full auto mode after pulling the trigger for the first time. Then its like the tail wagging the dog, hang on for dear life!! :lol:

I'd tend to agree with that. If it was somehow remotely possible---you'd never hit anything you're aiming at in a second. Matter of fact----I'm going out on a limb here and saying that it would be impossible.

I had one once. It wouldn't do 8 shots without jamming. :(

Yeah, that's the report I had from several owners of both the .50s and the .44 Mags. Rimmed cartridges aren't made for semi-autos! But, hey, they're badassss looking and fun to play with.

Does anyone know anyone who ever used a DE (fullsize, not the "Baby") for hunting or personal protection. I mean, other than Ahhnold in the movies?

Had one too. +1 on the 8 shots. Even with the ported bbl it goes up to 45 deg when fired. On full auto nobody I know could hold on, and it isn't rigged for full auto.
I sold mine. Thank God and UPS it's gone.

You can see my .44 magnum Desert Eagle in my avatar. I call BS on firing 8 rounds in 1 second. Even if you could control it, the action is not capable or functioning that fast.

Yeah, the gas piston system on it just isnt up to 480RPM

Personally, i hate the pistol with a passion. Its not a gun, its a toy in my mind.

Had one in 44. It was a jamomatic. I sold it and now have kinda been wanting a 50 for hunting. I think I need counseling...
