When the average pistol just won't cut it anymore, the Magnum Research Desert Eagle .50AE Blowback pistol from Cybergun is the perfect choice for players who don't wish to compromise on size or power. Originally developed in the late 1970’s this pistol was designed by Magnum Research and Israel Military Industries to compete with the mostly dominate revolver style magnum weapons. What separates the Desert Eagle apart from other magnum style sidearms, is the revolutionary semi-auto design for faster shooting that functions more like a rifle than a pistol. The high quality rifle style gas system allows for use of high pressure cartridges that lower power pistols cannot handle, for unmatched performance in the airsoft world.

The functioning slide kicks back with every trigger pull, offering realistic blowback action and an impressive display of performance. The iconic Desert Eagle has been used in numerous movies, tv shows, and video games making it one of the most easily recognizable firearms in the world. Fully licensed trademarks and markings provide a level of authenticity rarely seen on other replicas. Utilize the adjustable hop-up to account for various target range and wind conditions, for the perfect shot every time. The realistic field stripping capabilities allow for quick and easy cleaning while adding to the overall realism of this Desert Eagle. By combining a rugged full metal build with the power and accuracy to take out the competition, Cybergun has created an authentic Desert Eagle that is sure to resonate with airsoft enthusiasts of all play styles.
