    Hi guys just want to put it out here to see if anyone has had or know of this problem as I can't seem to find anything on it online.
    I have a TM desert eagle hard kick I bought it like this so problem did not happen to me.
    Problem is when I fire the pistol the pistol fires the bb and recoils back and locks and empty all the gas in the mag I can't see anything broken for inspection but happens every time first shot fired and locks back and will empty the mag of gas.
    If you know of this problem any help possible would be great.

    Have you tried it with another magazine? This happened to me as well, but when I replaced my mag it was all fine afterwards.

    Push the hammer valve into the mag, spray with silicone oil (Not WD40 etc), wait 30s, do again - leave overnight.

    If thats not it the hammer itself may be damaged. Its not unheard of them to snap generally (not Deagle specific).
