“I have had the Desert Eagle .44 Magnum for a little...”

Written on: 16/08/2007 by thehi (2 reviews written)

Good Points
Quite accurate at ranges below 20ft
Big Magazine
Rather Powerful
If you get the delux package with extra clip and holster it is very nice, can go up to 56 rounds without even having to reload
Lots of fun for plinking
Grouping is quite consistent
If Clip is opened up and metal bar removed extremely light and can be held super steady
I Have shot probably shot around 7-8 thousand bbs and only had like one or two jams

Bad Points
At ranges past 20 ft the accuracy can be come pretty iffy, and after 30ft it is just really bad
On mine it shoots upper left, which can being annoying but can be adjusted for
The clip doesn't just fall out
It's big
With .12g bb's it shoots incredibly high, i mean at 15ft probably shoots 3 - 3.5 ft high
It can load an extra bb but if you then slam in the clip it causes the gun to jam and bb's can break
Have to be careful when putting clip in for the above reason
Loading is annoying you can only put in one bb at a time

General Comments
I have had the Desert Eagle .44 Magnum for a little over six months now and for the money, I payed third dollars at dick's sporting goods, i am rather impressed. Accuracy is relatively nice for it's priced as mentioned and what i love most is the size of the clip and with two can be quite fun. Compared to my friends twenty dollar gun his was one could say more accurate but a third of the time on his gun the bb would fly off in some weird direction, with no grouping at all. My gun was overall consistently bottom right.



I got it with out any research after by friends got so cheap twenty dollar ones for Christmas and after going to two different stores this was the gun that turned out on top. And Quite a deal it was.



The other thing i must mention is the weight of the clips. Being curious if I could find a way to put more bb's in the clip in the gun I opened up the clip. I was shocked there was the big chunk of metal in the middle of it, while the rest of the clip was completely simple. After removing the metal the entire gun was at least half the weight. After trying it out i went to my room and shot at my Crosman target at approximately 12 ft and getting about 22 bb's in approximately a 1.5in grouping.



Overall with the delux package, which can be found on pyramidair.com or at your local sporting goods store, it is a good deal for the money, but do your research.
