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?

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.

Yeah, I don't know where he came up with that number, but its more like $2K.

That Big Purdy Desert Eagle pointed at a BG would surely make him soil his shorts and cry for Mommy!!!:cool:

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.

He gets millions of views, and the haters know the lame videos of them shooting 6" groups at 25 yards with their uber-tactical XD45 Comps would get around 12 views.

Yep, it's normal. Here's a pic of my .50AE.

My own idea of a $7,000 auto is a used used Chevy truck with a Glock 21 in the glove box.

The gold DE costs about $2K.

He doesn't own everything he shoots. He has a deal with a LGS to shoot some of their class 3 stuff for his advertisement in return.

I don't like him. I'll stick to hickock and h4t for anything I need review wise.

Not a fan of him at all. Considering the great majority of his audience (kids, very new shooters, and upper teens) he sets some very bad examples and makes gun owners look like complete fools. People say hes just having fun, I remember a video of his where he was shooting pistols in the air, at cans (I think it was cans anyways) No clue where that bullet is going beyond that can. And given his audience it wouldnt take much of a moron to say "that looks fun" then do it. Wind up shooting someone a mile away on accident. Same goes for him for that matter

Cool video, but I have one and noticed he was Mexican carrying with the hammer back and the safety disengaged!:whistling: That's a lot of firepower and the wrong place to have an a.d..

Yes, the 50 and 44 mags hang out a little.

Never heard or saw this guy before but you would have to be nuts to shoot ANYTHING with a 50AE at less then 15 feet.

Take it from me, I shot a pumpkin at about 10 feet and was covered with the stuff. In my mouth,eyes and hair. :embarassed:

Supposedly he makes around $650 a day just off his FPSRussia channel. lol I'm sure cost is of no importance to him with some things! Maybe the gold coating is thicker than normal!

It's not like I would ever be carrying it and it would sure bling up my gun safe I guess.

I believe he bought the DE with the "titanium gold" finish, which is not real gold. Those are probably $1,800-$2,200 range. There is also "24K gold" finish, which is probably the $7,000 version, since your gun is coated in actual 24K gold. Did anyone actually listen to what he was saying in the video?

I listened closely as a matter of fact. Its the same price as the titanium gold or maybe slightly higher.

Here's one that just sold on GB for $2089.
