Desert Eagle Semi auto Brick shooter (SCWV1) . . The next of my guns. Desert Eagle Semi auto Brick shooter (SCWV1) (Snow Camo Working Version 1). Yes its in snow camo. Which I have to say is better than my first attempt at snow camo. (Lever action rifle). Now if this gun looks familiar, thats because the main gun is Jack Streat's I found the iructions through NicklL0809. I then modified this design to be semi automatic. Video of this gun can be found at the bottom of the page.
I tried something different with this photo shoot. I added a red backdrop to make the snow camo stand out better. The handle is not snow camo because if you drop this in the snow, you want to be able to find it.
The mag will hold 8 "bullets" which makes it a .44mag.. I usually load 6-7 which makes it a .50 AE :D Seriously tho, 6-7 "bullets" is easier for the mag spring. Note, the red pieces are part of the mag, and not bullets.
The slide does work, but doesn't move when shooting. (Too much friction) I use it mostly to clear jams and such.
"tactical" knife... really just a cheap survival knife.
One of my favorite pictures.
Standard iron sights. I made them trans green so they are easier to see.
The "simple" mechanism. I put simple in quotes, because the mech is simple, but the time it took to get it to work right was anything but. Spent quite a while getting the design right. I think I went through 5 different prototypes.
Slide open, and mag out.
The actual firing power is the rubber band on the side. You can also see the slide lock. The side lock doesn't work as well as the original gun, but some things must be sacrificed. Another hard thing was to get the trigger to come away from the trigger guard, but still be able to have the range of motion I needed.
Close up of the semi auto mech. I actually got the idea for this mech when I was attempting to make a brick shooting revolver. This gun works way better than the revolver.
Mags much? I made three mags. For a semi auto gun, that is ok. Semi autos seem to go through the ammo faster than any other action besides fully auto. Yes the one on the right doesn't have a rubber band, it broke just before I took photos.
Mags, and ammo.

Looking down the barrel. GUN SAFETY tip of the day: DO NOT look down the barrel of ANY gun. Especially to see if it is loaded. To see if it is loaded, pull out the magazine, or open the action. If you have no clue how to operate those, ask the owner of the gun. If you are the owner of the gun, and/or you do not know what the words "action" and "magazine" refer to, SET THE GUN DOWN, and go to your local shooting range, or gun dealer to find a class on gun safety. NOW! ~Thank you~
Top of the gun.
Gun "field striped"
Top with slide off.
This is my new official Snow camo emblem. A snow flake with a 'C' in the middle. It appears in the title photo top right hand corner.
Personally I like this photo.
First person view. Very hard to hold the camera and take this shot by your self.
Thanks for looking, and keep your eye out for Desert Eagle (SCWV2). I'm going to modify it to be stronger.
