    There's an ad for a Micro Desert Eagle .380 in the new "Guns" magazine. I can't seem to find much information about this gun anywhere. It looks pretty cool. The ad says it's gas-assisted blowback.

    Anyone have any experience with this gun? I wonder how many more .380 pocket pistols will be introduced?

    I believe this came up somewhere on here. If I recall, the micro eagle is based on a pistol that's currently in production. It was one I had never heard of, hopefully someone more knowledgable will chime in.

    Here's the ad...

    It kind of reminds me of the Boberg.

    Out of pure curiosity, what does one of those cost?

    Awesome. 3/4" barrel, so there's nothing at all good to say about the accuracy, the velocity is ineffective at best, and with people like me whole instinctively put their fingers on the front of the trigger guard, is more likely to cause self-inflicted injury than anything else.

    Why do I still want one?

    Where are you gettin a 3/4 inch barrel from? It looks longer than that.
    I agree a finger on the trigger guard might be a bad idea though. I'm sure you would learn QUICKLY not to put your finger there.

    That or I'd lose the ability to put my finger there. :p

    And the barrel length is a little hyperbole on my part. But to just by the ejection port, the actual rifled length is just about the same as the OAL length of a .380 round. So, about an inch.

    There is one at our local shop! Sure looks nice, but at over $500 for a
    .380/6 shot no thanks.

    I didnt handle it, but it sure looks heavy and bulky for a CCW.
    More of a gimmick to me!

    I was interested until I checked gun broker and it was listed at 516 bucks. NO THANK YOU. I'll stick with my LCP. A Kahr PM9 may tempt me but not that thing.

    2.2 is a little more realistic. Thanks.

    My terminology is probably off, but keep in mind that they include the chamber as part of the barrel length, which (IMO), shouldn't be included. That means the bullet travels 2.2" minus the OAL of .380 (just shy of an inch).

    I believe it is a copy of the Czech made KEVIN (Champion) pistol.
    A gun that can't or isn't imported here, but popular in Europe.

    The real deal KEVIN would be much, much, cheaper.

    Finally, a gun that is actually uglier and more expensive than the Ruger LCP. :evil:

    What is the barrel on a P3AT? It looks like they took a hack saw and shortened the KelTec. The Micro Desert Eagle had better have something to set it apart from sub $300 .380 ccw pistols already on the market. OK who wants to tell us what is so special about the Micro?
