    Wildey 475 reliablity issues??

    I was thinking about buying another big auto handgun, and was considering the Wildey. I used to own one of the first Desert Eagles made back in the eightys. I really liked the pistol and found it to be reliable and accurate {even with the combat sites}. I sold the pistol after getting married to free up some funds and regreted it later.
    I been trying to dig up info on the Wildey and some of the little info that Ive found was that it was prone to breaking parts. If that is an issue the I will go back to the DE. Anyone here have any experience with these, know someone who has, or have a link from a magazine reveiw? Also, I just found this
    http://www.gun-tests.com/issues/16_6...es/5168-1.html
    does anyone have the rest of that article? thanks, and hello, Mike

    One of the Wildey descendants was busy on Gunbroker.com, early this fall, liquidating his father's private collection. There were some very nice, low serial numbered examples. I just looked and it seems as if they are all gone. There are about a half dozen auctions for them going on right now, for various models. Good luck looking. The biggest problem is finding ammo unless you find a 44 magnum.

    If I do buy this gun I will reload the shells myself, but only to target since there seems to be a learning curve with the gas adjustment on this handgun......Mike
