    I was just watching a FPSRussia video and he said that it cost him 7000 to purchase a Gold desert eagle in .50 and a barrel in .44mag. I did a quick google search and I was finding them for between 1800 to 2200. Then a stand alone barrel is 392.

    So is FPS misspeaking or is am I missing something and there is a Desert Eagle that does cost that much?

    He says it around 34 seconds in

    I'm not sure who would want a gold DE in the first place. :dunno:

    Never understood the hype around FPSRussia. the dude seems pretty clueless about guns other than that he has access to a boat load of them. maybe I need to watch more of his vids to see what the appeal of a fake Russian accent is.

    Oh I'm not trying to put anyone down for liking him. If it came off that way, I apologize. I personally don't see the appeal.

    Sounds like he paid about $5000 too much to me. Shooting fruit from 2 feet away must be pretty tough. :faint:And a gold DE...:puking:

    Is it normal for the mag to stick out like that? I rented and shot a .50AE DE awhile ago but don't remember how the mag was when inserted.

    Its costs nowhere near what he claims. They run $1800-$2000, I believe.

    Your first problem is thinking that a guy with a fake accent would be telling you the truth.

    Obviously people who play Call of Duty 4. Anyone whos played that game would understand.

    Thats who most of his videos appeal to anyways, he started out making Call of Duty videos.
