These airsoft guns was created to look so authentic and believable that it has appeared in many movies and television programs in place of real firearms or other lookalikes.
There are other aspects to the Desert Eagles that add to its realistic look and feel. In addition to being authentic in color and look, the airsoft gun pistol is made to be heavy on purpose, so that it feels more like a real firearm.
The gun is both semi- and fully automatic (except for the spring-loaded one of course) and although the gun does not fire as rapidly as some other airsoft pistols or submachine guns, this is because of how powerful it is.
The automatic electric Desert Eagle fires at over 200 fps (feet per second) and is known to be very accurate up to 40 feet. The muzzle velocity of the gas blowback version is even higher than that and accuracy increases accordingly.
The truth is that the Desert Eagle pistol has been manufactured for decades because of all of its qualities and if you happen to be looking for a pistol to start off an airsoft hobby, this pistol is a great choice.
