Trigger Mechanics: The Umarex Baby Desert Eagle features a double-action-only trigger mechanism. It is characterized by a lengthy, moderately heavy pull, with an extensive take-up and an inconsistent release point. Mastering precise and controlled shooting with this pistol requires some practice, but it is achievable. This gun is primarily designed for casual plinking, such as shooting cans in an informal setting. A detailed Field Test Shooting Review will be available soon.

Construction Quality: The Magnum Research Baby Desert Eagle is predominantly plastic, incorporating some internal metal components. The only functional external elements are the trigger and the cross bolt safety. Other parts like the slide catch, hammer, slide-mounted safety, and take-down lever are non-functional and integrated into the plastic body. The magazine is also internal, eliminating the need for a separate magazine release. This simplicity in design could be advantageous, reducing the chances of parts breaking or malfunctioning.

Replica Accuracy: This airgun is a visually accurate representation of the real Magnum Research Desert Eagle, though not to scale, and it bears the official trademarks. It's important to note that this is the 'Baby' version, hence it is considerably smaller and lighter than the Pellet shooting full-size Magnum Research Desert Eagle. This could be beneficial for users with smaller hands. In terms of appearance, the Umarex Baby Desert Eagle does resemble the Desert Eagle, apart from the unique slide trigger design.


  • Affordably priced at around $50.
  • Suitable for individuals with smaller hands compared to the full-sized Desert Eagle.
  • Equipped with both top and bottom picatinny rails for accessory attachments.
  • Officially licensed by Magnum Research.
  • Balances power, accuracy, and CO2 usage effectively.


  • Predominantly plastic construction.
  • Limited functional parts: only the trigger and cross bolt safety are operational.
  • The trigger pull is lengthy and somewhat unpredictable.
  • Mounting the included top picatinny rail obscures the use of the pistol's built-in iron sights.
  • Visible screw holes on the left side of the air pistol.
  • Lacks a drop-out magazine feature.


While I'm generally not overly excited about low-budget, predominantly plastic BB pistols, they do serve a purpose. Their simpler construction often leads to reliable performance with fewer mechanical issues. In action, these pistols are just as effective in hitting targets, offering a more affordable option for recreational shooting. The Umarex Baby Desert Eagle, despite being a smaller variant of the iconic Desert Eagle, is a commendable replica that offers the essence of the larger model at a more accessible size and price, making it a suitable alternative for those who desire the Desert Eagle experience without the larger size and higher cost.

Good but needs work.

This gun is alright in terms of accuracy to say the least. It fits in the hands pretty nicely and it handles fairly well. One thing that is a big turn-off for me is the accessory railings. One question I pose is this. Why even put an optic sight on this thing anyways? I get that some people have left-over optic sights but there are some who don't have any accessories to speak of. One suggestion is that customers and purchasers should have the option to order the same gun, but without the railings. Also, in terms of looks, it's alright but it would look a lot better if you had the option to order this gun with a custom plate job like gold or nickel for example.All-in-all, I give this 4 stars.

Umarex Magnum Research Baby Desert Eagle CO2 BB Pistol Field Test Review

Umarex Magnum Research Baby Desert Eagle CO2 BB Pistol Field Test Review

159 - 11/22/2021 8:13:54 PM

Make sure to watch my Table Top Review for this pistol for if you have not already done so. In this Field Test Shooting portion of my review for the Umarex Magnum Research Baby Desert Eagle CO2 BB Pistol, I shoot 5 rounds through my Chronograph to find out if the claimed 410-420 fps is accurate or not. I also setup a paper target at my standard 30 foot range and shoot 10 rounds using a semi rested position (Standing in the back while resting the gun on a sand bag up front). I did not add any additional sight options to the rails on the Umarex Baby Desert Eagle but rather stuck with the open sights for this field test. In terms of performance, the Umarex Magnum Research Baby Desert Eagle CO2 BB Pistol did pretty good for a really low cost BB gun with a rather long heavy unpredictable double action trigger. I was a bit surprised when I walked up to review the target to find just over a 2 inch group since while shooting it felt like I was pulling a many of the shots. The open sights are not adjustable in any way but I did shoot down the middle pretty well, but on the high side of the target. I would need to aim low to get this gun to shoot in the bulls-eye form 30 feet away. Either that or add some sort of sight to the top mounted picatinny rail.
