"You can get anywhere except the target": the net spoke about the pathos pistol Desert Eagle with gilding

60

For several decades of the Desert Eagle semi-automatic pistol (“Desert Eagle”), neither the armed forces nor law enforcement agencies of any country in the world have ever adopted it. But this did not stop him from gaining great popularity and the love of fans. This gun would even be called a real bestseller among those who prefer not to shoot, but to a greater extent boast.


Desert Eagle constantly flashed in various action films, television shows and video games. And indeed weapon has a very impressive look. And after the version with gold inserts went on sale, he began to play, as they say, with new colors, and they again started talking about Desert Eagle.

The clip of the new Desert Eagle XIX Black Titanium Gold pistol holds 7 rounds (plus one in the chamber) of 50AE caliber. The handle has an “anatomical” shape and provides an ideal angle of the hand for two-handed shooting. The weight of the gun from Magnum Research is about two kilograms. Such an impressive mass is provided by the very inserts.

Its trunk is 15,2 cm long visually has a gold coating. But it has nothing to do with gold alone and is made on the basis of titanium, which is reflected in its name. This alloy is also applied to some other elements - the magazine cover, fuse selector, its screws, trigger, trigger, etc. Because of this, the gun began to look even more pathos and impressive than before.

Few people take this weapon seriously, but at the same time it cannot but arouse sympathy.

Someone buys it to put it under the glass. The network mockingly declares that from Desert Eagle you can get anywhere except the target.

Interestingly, after the Desert Eagle went on sale, its virtual version began to gain popularity - for a computer game.

But do not rush to taunt these weapons, because, although the gun costs more than 3 thousand euros, they still buy it, especially when it received a "golden" performance.

One of the buyers said that he really liked the new Desert Eagle, as it is "funny."

Less pathetic version of the Desert Eagle line:

"You can get anywhere except the target": the net spoke about the pathos pistol Desert Eagle with gilding


To understand why people buy such pistols, it is worth listening to another buyer:

I know that many people like to mock the Desert Eagle, but it's really fun to shoot from. For any practical purpose, there are other pistols that I would capture first. But in order to have a fun and beautiful day in a professional shooting range, you can take this one. You’ll also pump up your hands ...

    Normal gun, why are you clinging?
    He is heavy. For strong hands.
    Of course, Glock is better. But Eagle is quite a working machine.

      And a little long. According to Freud - to compensate for the dimensions of the fetish lack thereof thereof ... in another place.
      But why else gilding - here even my imagination is not enough. Probably, “so that the Lord would notice more often” (C)

        Everything is simple: the owner should like the weapon. To look directly - and the soul rejoiced. Well, there are those who have what tastes; some rods of gilding (although, as for me, gives gypsy).

      Well, nafig him. Even at .45 caliber is terribly uncomfortable and difficult to “just hold”. Colt M1911 is much more convenient, so I chose Colt (or rather its Israeli copy) from two pistols at the shooting range, and not Nesher a-Midbar.

              I have zero respect for TT, a lot of minuses, I will not list, you yourself know everything. It is a pity that they did not have time to replace him with Vojvodina before the war. And 1911 in terms of ergonomics and appliedness, in my opinion, will be better than the legendary German “eight”.

                Somehow I became interested ... the best gun of the Second World War.
                Having the opportunity to test personally - I came to the unequivocal conclusion that the best was Browning Hi Power! Great Machine - with great features! In my opinion, both Colt and Luger are inferior to him ...

                  Alas, this Browning just turned in his hands (assembly-disassembly), there was no chance to shoot - the trunk was drilled. He has one definite advantage - a large-capacity store, well, apart from the name of the designer. The downside is the lack of self-cocking. In this regard, Walter R.38 completely beat all of the above pistols. Here I just know him much better than all the above named trunks. And minus - the store has only eight rounds of ammunition and a very high-positioned needle, holding and cocking with the same hand is inconvenient. I did not notice other minuses.

            Well, it’s better to compare 1911 with APS, I have especially warm feelings for it, for 15 years I have never beaten out “good” less in the credits, even after the holidays. P.226 made an impression of the imports, but it is a very rare thing in our Palestines.

      As far as I know, he was, in principle, conceived as a hunting pistol. And it's not even about spare weapons: in the United States and some other countries, hunting with a pistol is quite practiced. Discussions about the applicability of Eagle in power structures are meaningless: it was never intended for them and, as expected, they are completely not interested.

    One of the most useless pistols in the world. As a military weapon, it does not exist at all. Like a hunting one, any revolver in the same caliber will be both easier and more reliable and cheaper and at least not inferior in slaughter.
    So it turns out that his place is only in the movies, games and tenacious claws of arms fetishists.
