Micro Desert Eagle thoughts

As the title reads, I picked up one last week with 3 magazines and holster for $260. Less than 2 boxes of shells run thru it. The only thing wrong that I can see is holster wear. Any reviews good or bad on this little guy?

    Sounds like you got a good deal on it. However, sometimes, things that are small and convenient, are too small for good ergonomics, and proper operation. Yes, it fits in the pocket nicely, but will the whole package, including the user, be able to do what needs to be done in an emergency. Practice all you can.

    That's a very good price for what you got, I think.

    IIRC its a licensed copy of a Czech design and it uses a thin gas tube to partially retard slide blowback. All steel makes it heavier than many of these "pocket" .380s; whether thats good or bad is subjective. (Bad for carry. . .good for shooting).

    Anyway, the main thing to watch out for with this pistol is that the triggerguard goes all the way to the front of the barrel. Some people are accustomed to placing their support hand in front of the triggerguard when shooting auto pistols, and if you do that with this particular gun, you're liable to end the shot minus a finger!
