I got to take it out to a CQB arena for the first time today. Using this in one hand and a KJW in the other I dominated. This gun is as practical as it is novelty. Good for snow too, I dropped a mag in the snow and let it sit, the cartridge even crystallized, and it still fired 3 mags.
Great gas consumption (considering recoil)
Good CQB FPS 330
Full auto, why not
Removable orange tip, just crack loose with pliers
Easy Disassemble, slighly tricky hop-up
TONS of recoil for an airsoft gun
Epic Trademarks on the Left side
Mag release harder to bump than a .45, even though its the same design
C02 works awesome in the snow
Only Full Metal Desert Eagle that isn't tons of $$$
Good mag cap
Top rails for optics
Polymer lower (it says full metal, so I guess a real Desert Eagle has a polymer lower too?)
You really have to smack it around, not like a 1911 where you can be ginger, don't be afraid to let the slide slam, and get used to pushing the selector switch up and down.
Recoil is hard to manage accurately, but its recoil that makes it fun
Hard to find a good holster for it
Hard to find mags
C02 is a little pricier than propane
Have to keep track on an allen key (for changing C02)
Full auto is unrealistic, and when switching from safe to fire, it sometimes slips all the way into auto.
Feels heavy in a holster
Tends to pinch or tear skin if not careful, not for girls hands
Magwell is not beveled, get used to guiding it in
ALL of these cons are minor, and are merely points to consider when using, these are not factors that should stop you from buying this AWESOME gun!
