How Does the Desert Eagle Airsoft Gun Compare to Other Pistols?
Of course, before buying any sort of airsoft gun, you will want to assess how it compares to other weapons on the market and why this is.
Desert Eagle Vs Evolution E017 Warrior GBB Pistol
The Evolution E017 Warrior Pistol is a great gun for starter and beginner-level players, so if you’re completely new to the sport, this might be the better option.
It is also powered by green gas, compared to the Desert Eagle, which is powered by CO2. This means that the Evolution E017 will not have as much recoil, giving it an advantage over the Desert Eagle regarding accuracy and range.
However, the Desert Eagle has far superior metal externals compared to the plastic construction of the Evolution E017 Warrior Pistol, meaning that it is more durable, realistic, and has a longer lifespan.
Both pistols are built for use with iron sights, with the Desert Eagle having an added 20mm railed slide for enhanced accuracy.
Overall, these two pistols are the best on the market, and they both have their own strengths and weaknesses. The Desert Eagle is more suited towards experienced players due to its power and realism, while the Evolution E017 Warrior Pistol is ideal for beginners starting out in the game.
