TM - Leon Custom Desert Eagle (10 inch!!)

Resident Evil - Tokyo Marui - Leon Custom Desert Eagle (10 inches)

One

Long

Ass

Barrel

The True Zombie Killer

The fruit of my eye, the sun in my sky, the one and only love of my life!
(Well my Girlfriend too and cute dogs and cats)

Pistolero Kings shall drool over its design and Deagle lovers will Jizz in their pants (2008 Andy Sandberg song)

My camera is broken but its brand spanking new and yes it looks like this

Courtesy RedWolf

Aesthetics of Design
- Black Sexy Pistol Case
- Long Outer Barrel (Unforunately the inner barrel is the normal size of a desert eagle
- Racoon Police Department Insignia on the grip
- Chrome Magazine
- Contoured hand grip
- Chrome but Hard ABS plastic gun

Performance: Personal Experience

I have wielded Sigs, Glocks, USPs, 1911, and 2011. But the kick on this one I would say beats them all. I definitely cannot one hand this as my aim goes off like crazy. I have had no trouble wielding a Hicapa one hand and still get decent accuracy but this, no I cannot.

With this gun you cannot be sloppy with your pistol stance. A new pistol wielder will have no trouble when they pick up a TM Hi-capa but with this I still have to get use to the sighting and contour of the grip.

The grip is larger than the TM Hi-Capa and I read a review that said that you need to be big and tall to wield it. WRONG I'm 5 foot 7 which is I believe average height in Canada, correct me if I am wrong. Though the grip is large the contour of the grip lets you easily wrap your hand around it.

Performance Review: Shooting

Chrono: 350 FPS? (Yet to Chrono)

Still have to get use to the kick, my front sight jiggles way more than when I wielded a TM Hicapa. The accuracy is pretty much the same as a normal TM Desert Eagle. I feel a bit shafted because though it says 10 inches yes the slide is but the inner barrel is the same as a normal one

I have yet to Chrono but on propane I was able to pierce a coke can and at times it pierced through both sides. So I may have to use Butane if I find its above 350 FPS.

Conclusion

Will I game this? HELL YEAH, I don't like wall hanging guns, I like to pick it up and shoot anything minus furry cute animals, they soo cute little wittle guys. Ahem... I think I have found my true Pistolero weapon of choice.

Wow.. Hot damn I want one of those lol. That is damn sexy.
Especially useful for the zombpocalypse. Guaranteed one shot one kill, with a little extra range and accuracy too.

Yeah its hot but I feel shafted cause the inner barrel does not extend all the way to the tip of the long slide

Its the same inner barrel size of a normal TM Desert eagle

So I will have to purchase a aftermarket barrel that is long

I've never liked the desert eagle. I'd rather have the Samurai Edge. It's a much more efficient zombie killer


Do you have a sling for it? Or maybe one of those shotgun scabbards would work...

Oh I've searched for the Samraui's Edge and searched and searched, I would have gotten it too, its more compact and easier to sight down than this long elephant killer. And people who do have it are not going to let it go.

Surprisingly it still fits in my cheapo China Holster, yay!

The stock TM DE has a chronied velocity of 350fps out of the box on 0.20g with propane (I've owned about 7 and chronied 3). If the inner barrel on this one is longer than the regular model, I'd expect it to chrony much higher.

Heh I love DEs, but haven't owned one of these yet. It's mighty purdy.

I held one of those once and it was really nice. My only problem was the extendeded barrel is plastic and so long that I would worry about banging it around in a game.

Mind u I am really rough on the guns as well.

Phew good to know, but yeah the Inner Barrel is not to the tip which is bad and I guess good thing so that the FPS is not over 350

As for banging it around I fear that too cause I do crazy maneuvers too sometimes minus diving in sand :P

Oh so you are the one with the coffin case I think you posted them in the Gallery awhile back? Sweet guns it would actually look good especially it being the Undead Hand Cannon

Owned one, it's a beauty but too
fragile for me to tear up the abs
finish. Kicks hard, as most DE's.

I was disappointed with the amount
of plastic on the gun, even the rear
sight is plastic.

There are 10" metal kits out there
if you want to upgrade, the Zeke
one comes with a 10" inner barrel.

Yes the Plastic is sad, but did you actually put a lot of wear on it? Broken?

And thanks for pointing in the right direction, your read my mind as I was just going to search for one too. Looks like I have a new purpose haha

Nope, got it new, made sweet love
to it and then sold it with zero rounds
fired, except for a couple dry fires.

It was an impulse buy, I couldn't bring
myself to scuff up that finish.
