Welcome and below probably won't apply to much to you .
I tumble / vibrate any new mags / clips . Walnut shells 1st , than the corn husks .
Then dykon blue [ machinist blueing ] I prefer the paste , but you can get it liquid form with a brush [ red and blue .
I use the throw away gloves when using the paste type and wipe real good .
Another way to remove the burrs on top of mag is to use emery cloth - tear off a piece about as wide as mag , slide into a cotter key , chuck up in a hand drill [ if your mag has the little holes to see how many rounds are left , push down and hold down with tooth pick - other wise - load a few M T cases in mag and drill a small hole ] - spin in mag , cloth side touching the metal - then dykon blue it so it does not rust .
If you have a dermal tool , use a bullet case and stamp out some paper disks , screw into / on the little shaft and spin away - the paper will cut polish .

Mag is fine it was the top of it that was scraping the red paint off my snap caps.

The places that scratch off the paint , can and usually will scratch the cartridge which can raise either the lead or copper on bullet . This can cause the shell case to stick causing more pressure on extractor . It CAN leave a small amount of copper or lead in barrel Over time it can even scratch the barrel , but generally firing 2 or 3 magazines removes the problem unless the magazine is bent .
When you use real cartridges , a sign something is wrong is after you pull back slide to load 1st round , you have to push slide home [ anywhere form 1/8 to 1/4 inch . Don't - pull back slide which will eject cartridge - finger off trigger [ should not be there anyway ] hold gun about 3 inches off flat surface and eject . If next round seats , you are good to go . If not the gun should be inspected will you clean it .
Someone else may explain better .

I use snap CAPS IN EVERYTHING when dry firing . You can grind the rim off where the ejector grabs the snap cap so it stays is the gun when you rack the slide or in a lever action rifle . If you have a Glock you don't need to grind the rim because you only rack the slide a 1/2" to reset the trigger and the snap cap will stay in chamber . Hammer gun you need to cock the hammer only .

Have you used snap caps in a 50 AE ? If so , where did you get them .
Kind of new here , so I have not read if you like / or dislike the Desert eagles .

The Desert Eagle is far too big for my hands , plus my 1st gun I built for long range hunting was a XP100 in 308 winc in the 70's and anything under 500 yds was dead .

You can get snap caps easy . Here is 1 place

Yes ago , I shot a pig [ w 270 maybe 75 yards ] , it got up , hit it again w 45 , still moving 2nd 45 stopped it .
That is when I got the desert eagle . The 50 AE is a lot heavier than the 45 whrn you start going up and down hills - ended up with a shoulder holster .

I never shot anything with a 308 that ever got up . I'm a reloader and I use the 30-30 bullet heads in my 308 on small game because the jackets are thinner then the 308 and at the 308 velocity the bullets blowup like a 223 when it hits anything . 165 or 180 SP BT 308 bullet heads will anchor large animals like deer and elk it hit under 600 yds .

I shot a monster sow hog one year in Rivera, TX. I was in an elevated blind, had a rest and the distance was about 30-40 yards. I shot for the lungs and she never slowed down. She was enormous so I don't think I penetrated deep enough to find both lungs. I should have taken a head shot although I would have needed a crane to load her in the truck as I was by myself.

I was using an M-1 Garand , sometimes both deer and pigs still moved . The Remington 270 [ DBL 700 ] took down both deer and pigs until that one [ it dressed out at 370 something ]
When I hunted for myself , I wanted the smaller ones - from about 150-200 lbs . That would give me from 100 to 150 lbs [ I had a butcher that would hang and cut up for 3 cent a pound out the door . All I wanted was about 10 lbs sausage , ribs , roasts and he would smoke the bacon - the rest he could keep .
When hunting for church - they wanted as much meat as possible - cut everything like stew meat . When he found out [ the butcher ] that their [ churches ] meat was for tamales , he would weigh the pig , knock off 15% for waste / bones and just give me that much in pork stew meat .
I am in California and here you are allowed to shoot one a day , but only one in possession . No season .
So when the church , family made tamales a month ahead my mom would say " don't forget we need a pig next month " . Almost the same with church - Christmas , new years , 4th of July and Mexican Independence Day [ Mexico has 2 - cenco-day-mayo and in September . I meat my wife at the church - she was the one in charge of the tamale making [ was the house keeper ]
About 15 years ago , I stopped hunting the country side [ bad knees ] 10 years ago , stopped hunting altogether - now it is just target practice and training nephews to reload , track and hunt .
Like a fool - I loaned the M-1 to a nephew , one of his friends was carrying it - did not have a hunting
License - game warden took it . I was told that . You want it back - 600 in fines or we keep it .
If I find a good one or an M-14 in / around Reno , I will pick it up . In November , Cabella's , other 2 gun stores did not have one .
THANKS for the ebay post - I went there , they were closed . I sent him / them an email that I wanted last set .
When I search for desert eagle 50 ae , all I get is mags , magazines , grips barrels , cufflinks , pins , CO2 toys -
