The Colt Double Eagle Spring Pistol Airsoft Gun is constructed from plastic that keeps the weight down but is not as durable as its high end metal counter part. The Colt Double Eagle Spring Pistol is operated by racking the slide which cocks the spring for a single shot. The spring system used in this gun allows it to be very affordable, however it is not skirmishable or realistic. The Colt Double Eagle Spring Pistol has realistic features such as realistic sights, slide cocking serrations, textured grip and magazine release. Despite the realistic features, the Colt Double Eagle Spring Pistol leaves much to be desired in the authenticity department.
Although the Colt Double Eagle Spring Pistol may be adequate for a display piece or prop, there are much better options for skirmishable airsoft guns that are still affordable. A spring shotgun such as the AGM Full Stock Spring Shotgun Airsoft Gun which comes in at only $29.99 features a much more realistic action as well as a much higher build quality. For a just a little more you can purchase a very reliable and skirmishable shotgun such as the Fire Power Multi-Shot Spring Shotgun
which features a very durable polymer body as well as 3 shot burst to better replicate a shotgun. Although, if you are set on purchasing a pitsol type airsoft gun you should save up a purchase something like a Gas blow back 1911, GBB airsoft guns are the most realistic guns you can buy. You can check the GBB 1911s out here, High quality Full metal 1911s
As previously stated, this gun is not field ready due to its low performance. Although due to its realistic look and features, this gun is a great choice for use in film productions or as a great display piece. Please do not expect to be able to compete with high quality airsoft guns while using this low cost airsoft gun. This gun is not serviceable and does not come with a warranty of any kind.
