Well, I've finally cracked!

I brought home an IMI/Magnum Research Desert Eagle MK VII today...

Image

It came in to my LGS on trade and the price was too good to pass up. This one's chambered in .357mag, so I don't have to spend $1.50+ every time I pull the trigger although I do see myself eventually investing in the .50AE conversion barrel/bolt at some point. I can't wait to get it out to the range in the morning...

Thank you Sir!

Took it out today and put 100 rounds down range. Had to go to three different Wally World stores to find any .357mag ammo and all I could come up with was 50rds of 110gr Winchester white box and 50rds 125gr Remy UMC. Started out with a couple mags of the Winchester stuff and it had me worried 'cause I couldn't get more than one round off at a time. The ammo didn't have enough poop and was short stroking the slide. It just couldn't push that massive slide back far enough to catch the next round. Switched up the the Remy ammo and put all 50rds through it without a hiccup. Went back to finish off the WWB and to my surprise they all fed smoothly too. Guess it just needed to run for a bit. Didn't have a single jam or FTE through the entire 100 rounds. The recoil was a LOT lighter that I expected too. I was put'n a 9rd mag in a 3-4" group at 25yds so I'm very pleased with the way it shoots.
