Desert Eagle

The Desert Eagle is a semi-automatic handgun notable for having the largest center-fire cartridge of any self-loading pistol. The pistol is fired by a single action hammer, and has a manual safety switch on the slide. It uses a gas-operated mechanism normally found in rifles in contrary to the short recoil or blow-back designs commonly used in semi-automatic pistols.The Desert Eagle has been featured in more than 500 films and video games such as Eraser, Red Heat, Last Action Hero, Rambo III, Demolition Man, Assassins, The Last Boy Scout, Double Impact, Snatch and The Matrix.
