Do Desert Eagle .44's function okay

Recommended Posts

Interesting post.  Not sure  if you're speaking in general or in the context of competitive shooting sports. I've been shooting USPSA for 10 or so years.  I've seen quite a few things, but a DE is not one of them. 

 

I have a .357 DE and it's a heavy beast. Fun to take to the range, but there are more practical .357's out there.

Mine works very well...I reload and use hot loads w/H110 under a 240gr.

 

Would never use it for competition, except maybe pin shoots.  Too heavy and only 8 rounds/mag.  

 

Lots of fun - my avatar is the muzzle flash from mine during daylight @ outdoor range.

With heavy near max loads it functions fine. I had trouble with anything less.

I have a Desert Eagle .44 mag marked XIX.  So it's one of the newer models.  I don't have a lot of rounds through it, but i've never had an issue with reliability.

I have an old one, bought new in 1988 or so.  Runs great as long as I use 240gn bullets.
