Nice weight
Hard kick
Full auto
It's a desert eagle

Gas hog
Parts are hard to find

"This is such a nice gun, though looking at some of the other reviews I do want to note that there is no way this gun weighs the same as my lancer tactical AK. Now that I addressed that, onto the Pros and Cons

Good FPS (330 when I tested)
Awesome recoil
Green gas and 40rd mags available
full metal slide and barrel
And best of all....FULL AUTO

Plastic frame
Holsters don't normally fit (I use a thigh holster so its huge)

"The KWC Desert Eagle
Price: $135, on Sale $108 (bought mine while it was on sale)
This is a big gun and therefore is very front heavy. The fire selector can be stiff when first out of box but eventually loosens up with constant use. The handgrip is made from very durable plastic; feels solid, and is comfortable. This gun is advertised as full auto but has a semi fire option as well. I can confirm without using silicon spray before and after use, this gun gets 2 1/2 mags from one Co2 cylinder. I used Matrix SC-200 silicon spray afterwards to see if there's a difference; the gun gets 3 1/2 mags. Compared to my Usp non blowback which gets 8-9 mags per Co2 canister(with silicon oil), there is no question this uses a ton of gas. For most blow backs, about half of the gas is used towards pushing the slide back and the other half pushing the bb out. Because of the weight of the actually slide, it takes more to push it back. This gun contains top rails to possibly add a sight though In my opinion, it doesn't need an optic.
Moving on. The magazines are full metal, have a good weight to it(so don't drop them), and easy access for cylinders. Holds around 16bbs and requires a tool to load it. Because of inconvenience of the tool, you probably would want to buy a spare mag as I have; reloading on the field would be time consuming and cumbersome.
Full Auto
This feature is purely for fun, just like the Tm extreme .45
Any kind of accuracy is vacant, because this gun can't handle itself. It isn't reasonable at all, but it sure is one hell of a fun gun; made me laugh with delight.
Field strip
You cannot fully field strip this pistol due to the half slide. The internals can still be accessed when half of the slide is removed.
Final thoughts
I bought this purely, because i was in the market for a relatively cheap blowback pistol that was made from sturdy materials and stands out from the normal crowd of 1911s, glocks and m9s. It has achieved all that I was looking for. Is it efficient? No. Is it pretentious? Hell yes
You won't be disappointed if your willing to deal with the imperfections.

"Ive had this gun for about 4 months now and it is a very formidable weapon on the field. The gun is much larger than it looks on the internet and is very heavy for a pistol. The whole slide and barrel assembly is metal as well as the lower portion of the magazine where the CO2 cartridge is held. The lower part of the gun except for the slide release, mag release, and breakdown button is made out of a very durable plastic. This gun is shooting about 330 -350 fps which is pretty good for a GBB. The only issue I have with this gun is that valve in the mag can loosen when you screw in the CO2 cartridges causing it to leak gas. Its not that big of a problem if you check the valve every once in a while. All together it is a very well built gun that can add some leverage over other players

Hard kick
Fully automatic

Very heavy (~5 lbs)
Wont fit in a regular holster
CO2 is not allowed on some fields

"This Desert Eagle A.K.A Deagle is one of the best guns ive had for airsoft in my career. this gun the moment it comes out of the box made itself look like a godly weapon compared to all other aegs i had ever had. it sends your opponents running when ever you shoot and is a very imposing gun. its literally the closest thing you can get to the real thing.

hard kick
heavy (if you like realistic weapons)

High FPS
Metal(slide/upper body)

"i picked up one of these before Lion Claws 15 and decided to run it as my secondary. many buildings cleared and objectives secured with it, it was dropped, kicked, stuffed with dirt, and its still kicking hard and pumping out BBS. nice solid construction. the full auto is usable surprisingly, in controlled bursts it comes in very handy in close quarters. however you will need large hands and a firm grip to keep control on it in full auto. now mmy new favorite pistol!

"This gun was great when i first got it after about a week i poop you not the barrel shot out and the slide literally exploded into 15 pieces. i recommend anyone who wants a gun that explodes buys this heavy duty piece of poop

"Like a lot of people have said, this gun is in fact a beast. That being said, I would have to say that owning this particular handgun requires a little bit of GBB experience and should be owned by players with a decent amount of experience or more. I say this because while removing the barrel is easy, the slide is a bit more tricky. there is a small allen screw that must be screwed in in order to remove the slide and screwed back in if you want you trigger to work like it should. There aren't many parts available for it in the event that something goes wrong, so please be careful with this gun. Yes you will turn heads with this pistol, but with everything, make sure you know how to use it properly.

This list of pros and cons is based off of my experience and can vary depending on the person and situation. I can't vouch for chrono results or gas consumption due to the fact that I still need a chronograph and it's about that time of year when it starts snowing


- Hard blowback
- Heavy weight
- Full metal outer barrel and slide assembly/metal in all the right parts
- Dead accurate with .23 and above. (Still highly accurate with .20)
- Ability to be de-cocked like the real thing (There have been a few GBBs in which the only way to de-cock the gun was to pull the trigger. Not the case here)


- Easy scratching
- Full auto mode (Cool, but highly unnecessary. Speeds up thee rate of wear)
- Fires in full auto when in Semi (Only happened to me after I tampered with a little. Make sure you know exactly what you are doing when you take this gun apart. goes back to Semi after a few trigger pulls)

"If you are choosing whether to get this or the TM, in the long run, the TM will be better. If you have spare Co2, maintain and treat your guns often and with respect, lube often, and trust in your own skills that you can sustain a gun with little to no spare parts on the market, this is definitely a gun to buy.

If you live in UK or play CQB, FPS averages around 330 with FPS groupings from 298 to 354. I recommend taking at least 2-4 shots with new CO2, as I found it is VERY HOT with a new CO2 cartridge, from 370's to 390's. The FPS fluctuates a lot and so you may need to buy a FEW pistol springs as the DE has 2 SPRINGS. (FPS was based off of .20 grams)

Build quality is about average with necessary parts being metal and the materialistic things being plastic. Everyone says this gun is not ergonomic but, personally, you never know until you actually grip it.(I don't care about ergonomics) Pretty easy to disassemble BUT other reviews have complained about the slide breaking so keep that in mind. The fire selector should be switched while the gun is uncocked, because, if the gun is pulled back, and you try to switch from safety to semi, your gun may break. Taking the orange barrel off will reveal a thread for potential suppressors to be used. It also has a top rail for your sights.

Performance wise it's decent. It has the capability to get decent accuracy at SMG distances depending on your BB's. Trigger response is slightly above average with a consistent response. RPS maybe around 18-20 so if you use auto(not recommended) you will have good primary or secondary. Kick makes this gun exciting and the DE will turn many heads with such a cannon of a gun

Personally I just ran cargo shorts with my loadout so I just put my gun in my pocket. In CQB I run it as a primary so I don't know what to tell you when it comes to holsters. Also, People have experienced mag leaks, but I have not and I have bought 2 extra mags.


If you are an experienced air softer that is willing to invest in the gun and potentially expensive parts, and promise to treat the gun with care this gun will reward you, otherwise just get some bulky HI-CAPA or a KWA ATP. This gun is not for beginners and can POTENTIALLY be a high maintenance gun. Also consider that you may be shipped a good gun or a bad gun, as previous reviews point out.

SCORE- 82/100

+ It's a Desert Eagle
+ Kick
+ Licensed
+ Sound

- Parts for sale
- Full Auto decreases gun's life
- High Maintenance
- Inconsistent FPS
- Expensive Mags

"Realism: Blowback, full-sized magazine, field strips, Desert Eagle licensed.

Reliability: So far so good! No problems with jams or any other issues.

Accuracy: Right out of the box I shot a 3" middle of target grouping from 20 feet

C02 Consumption: 52 shots on a hot Texas day using Daisy 12gr. C02. Took 3-4 seconds between shots in semi-auto mode.

Fit & Finish: Almost excellent, but not quite. Some rattle can be heard from the slide, internal parts.

Bang For The Buck: Bought it on sale for $116 right here at Evike! Gun is still a good
buy at $145.

I would recommend buying one of these guns before they are all gone!
