    The New Desert Eagle .380

    It is small. It is a bit thick. It is a bit heavy (14 oz empty), but on the good side you may get the opportunity to shoot your finger off…

    I guess it should be an easy shooter, due to the weight and “semi gas operated” design The trigger guard has a sharp upward angle leading to the muzzle. If you are one of those shooters that hooks your finger on the trigger guard, do not buy this gun. The angle on the front of the trigger guard is sure to suck a shooters hand up to the muzzle.

    I don’t know what it provides that the Kel-Tek, LCP or Kahr doesn’t.

    Yea, I saw the ad in a magazine this weekend. There is a thread on another forum about it - I think Glocktalk. So far, Hadn't seen any reports from someone who actually has 1.

    Oh, come on! It's 3 times the price. What's not to want?

    And how much is this puppy? Looks a lot meaner than my Ruger LCP.

    I believe MSRP is $535 or somewhere around there.

    I'd suggest NOT shooting this gun "thumbs forward"... Good way to remove the finger prints on your left thumb...

    OUCH!!!

    Looks like another company jumping on the ultra tiny .380 bandwagon. I think its hideous, I'll stick to my KT P-32 for a BUG/ ultra deep cover gun. Cheap, reliable, lightweight and accurate.

    Looked familiar to me. Googling around turns this up:

    The ZVI KEVIN is being sold in the US by Magnum Research as the Micro Desert Eagle.

    I have never even heard of this one. Thanks for the education.

    I'm just curious how a blowback weapon could not be "gas assisted"??? Isn't the gas propelling the case rearward against the breech, forcing the slide to move on all of them? Now, if it was gas delayed, that would be cool.

    If I was looking for a 380, it would be a Kel Tec or a Ruger...

    I held one at the gunshow yesterday.

    The grip is pretty fat. I held it against a Keltec 32. This new 380 desert eagle is about as thick as the Beretta Tomcat 32.

    I'll pass, if I'm gong to go with a steel .380 I'll go with either a Seecamp or better yet a NAA Guardian.

    Personally I've got my eye on the Kahr P380 to replace my Colt .380s in carry rotation.

    It seems the Ruger LCP is still the best bet in the .380, concealable genre.

    Wow haven't heard that brand in a while. My biggest mistake was when I sold my Grendel P30. 22 mag, 30 rd magazine. And accurate as any gun I've ever shot. I'd buy another in a heart beat!

    I heard that SIG has revived the .380 metal framed semiauto recently. I'd like to try that one.
