I have become a big fan of IWI firearms, specifically the Jericho 941. That Desert Eagle, though, that's a great looking monster.

Can someone give me the Cliffs Notes for 50 AE, say vs 500 S&W?:confused:

I am simply not familiar with the 50 AE.

Thanks in advance!
Honestly the 500 mag is a beast even compared to the 50ae. The d.e. 50ae just has more of a cult following and it is a lot easier to shoot than the 500 mag revolver...

I have a Desert Eagle 1911C. Love the gun. Well put together, fit and finish is superb. Series 70 action. Trigger is about 3 pounds, break is crisp, no over travel and the reset is consistent. I have a friend who has a Gold Cup which has had some custom work done on it - specifically a competition barrel and trigger. He actually likes my DE as much as his Gold Cup. Personally, I like it better than his Gold Cup. DE1911.jpg

Just learned that an AR firing .500 S&W Magnum will be unveiled at Shot Show this year. They've made the case rimless for ease of mag feeding, but otherwise the exact same cartridge.
Another company is also making an upper for AR10 that will do a rimless 45-70Gov...and another that is basically a .458 socom but built around the AR10 platform called the .458 HAMR.
