It Takes a Lot of Can to Suppress a Deagle .50 cal (VIDEO)

The Desert Eagle .50AE is hand cannon that brings a lot to the firing line, even with a giant suppressor.

In an effort to tame the muzzle blast, pressure wave and, oh yeah, sound signature of the big pistol, Andrew Boetjer of GY6 Vids set about on a mission to try to hush a Deagle.

As such, he takes one of the super-sized handguns, swaps out the stock barrel for one of Magnum Research’s 10-inch threaded models, and adds a nearly foot-long Bowers VERS 50 can to the muzzle. The result is a curious contraption fit for Deadpool or some other comic book hero/villain that actually delivers in a short comparison.
