    44 magnum desert eagle

    I just purchased a use desert eagle 44 mag. i just put 50 rounds through it with no issues. but upon further inspection of the brass i noticed that on each of the primers there is a mark that in not sure it is supposed to be there.. its not where the firing pin is hitting, it hits dead center on each round, its the edge of the primer there is a scratch you can feel, just woundering if this is normal and what caused it??

    It may be that the gun's firing pin is not retracting fully, before the extractor and ejector work it over. The firing pin may be scratching the case as it leaves.
    It may be that the firing-pin channel is fouled, or that the firing-pin-retraction spring is—if the gun has one, that is.

    Take the whole thing apart, clean everything very thoroughly, and try shooting it again.
    Then report back.

    It may be a sharp edge on the bolt lug that pushes the rounds out of the magazine, or possibly a burr on the outside of the firing pin hole on the face of the bolt (perhaps caused by dry-firing?). You can check to see if it is happening during chambering vs firing by chambering a live round (on the range, please, not in the house/apt), and then carefully extracting and ejecting the live/unfired cartridge and inspecting it for the damage you are seeing on the fired rounds.
