I'm serious... it shoots bricks. Gun by NicklL0809 but i added somethings that I think make the gun overall better. Such as the technic peices on the outside, that was P.K's idea though. This is a fun gun to shoot. When built the base version from Nicks instructions on Youtube, I had tons of problems. Then I added some peices and it made a world of diffrence. If you want instructions they are on Youtube just search for NicklL0809. Overall I'm happy with this gun, its pretty reliable and accurate. The only complaints I have are occasional runaways and inconsistent range. (A runaway is when a gun fires but you dont pull the trigger.)If you plan to build this gun I highly recomend that you put the red technic peices on the side. It make a world of diffrence if your jamming a lot and it helps keep the gun together.
About this creation
With enough power to stop a car, the D-Eagle is one of the most powerful handguns on Earth. The first version were chambered for the 357 magnum round. Later versions came in 44 Mag and 50 Action Express. Most modern day versions have interchangable barrels so you can switch between 44 Mag and 50 AE. Many people have the wrong idea that a D-Eagle is inaccurate and unreliable. Though I have never shot a real one I can tell you right now that is not true. Why? If they were so inaccurate and unreliable why would thousands of people own one? Unlike most other handguns, the D-Eagle does NOT use a normal direct blowback system. Instead it uses a gas operated system, somthing only usally found in ARs. I belive the reason for this is that a normal direct blowback system could not handel the recoil. Many people also think that the D-Eagle is uncontrolable and has massive recoil. Again I dont know this on a personal level but I have seen people... even women shoot an Eagle and they handle it just fine. The weight of the gun and the gas system help to keep the recoil down. Heck some people can do it one-handed. Another conterversal subject is ammo. 44 Magnum vs 50 AE... which one is best? I'd have to say the 44 Mag is the best way to go. It can be just as fun to shoot but for about half the price of 50 AE ammo. In case you didnt know this already 50 AE rounds are expensive and hard to find. 44 Magnum rounds on the other hand are more plentiful and cheaper. (You can buy them from Walmart)
Yea... you didnt read any of that did you? READ IT! It will prove to you that I know my guns and my knowadge goes beyond first person shooters.
The slide locks back
Here you can see the mechanism w/ the hammer back
The red bar pushes bullets in fron of the hammer to fire
Again the mechanism but with the hammer in the resting position and the magazine in
Fieldstrip so you can access the entire gun to replace rubberbands, clear a jam etc

I have to say, I did read all your stuff about the rounds, and the gun. I also read your home page. Got to say, you are my kind of guy. I really like your attitude toward lego guns. "Make 'em work, and who gives a dang about what they look like."
