MaDuce Posted August 3, 2014 Report Share Posted August 3, 2014 (edited) A friend of mine swears up and down that the people who make the Desert Eagle (which would be MRI, IMI CMI and IWI) make or made a liquid cooled Desert Eagle and swears he has one. Firstly, I AM aware of the use of water jackets in early machine guns as well as some modern artillery and I DID ask to see his Desert Eagles, which he has not shown me yet though to be fair to him, he hasn't had much of an opportunity to do so as of yet. Furthermore, I myself have a Desert Eagle in .44 Magnum and helped CMI improve the followers to the Desert Eagle factory magazines in exchange for several magazines for my own gun. Needless to say, I am no fool when it comes to the inner workings of this gun. To me the biggest problem with a liquid cooling system for the Desert Eagle is that; for it to work effectively it would have to encircle the barrel and the barrel of the Desert Eagle is heavily integrated with many other functions of the gun, so adding a water jacket to a Desert Eagle, much like any other modern handgun would cripple most of the guns other mandatory functions if you could even do it without downright removing essential components like the slide. But the fellow also says that this is well known and well used technology in modern firearms and has even gone so far as accusing me of being poorly educated, way behind or something like that for not being aware of it. I already know the overall truth as I have pointed out, but literally for the sake of argument, can someone explain to me any truth behind any of these claims, if anything at all?
