"NA BEAN DON CHAT GUN LAMHAINN"
there is another guy talking about building 4.5" super-shortie!
i think there is a "shortie" arms race going on! HOW short can you go?
i was in the lead but my super shortie has got the gas-port in the chamber--now i got to find that special ported brass ammo--LOL!
I'm going to show my ignorance here, but why couldn't you make it a blow back being so short? Is it because it's not a straight walled case? I'm no expert but isn't the Desert Eagle
a modified AR bolt head? Just thinking out loud.

Blowback is reserved for relatively low powered rounds, a .223 to be viable as a blowback would take a 20 something pound bolt. Not practical. And the Desert Eagle is a gas operated gun, which is why the manual states only use jacketed bullets. The lead ones melt into the gas system.
