Is an orange pistol more effective than say, a white one with a higher damage ? I suppose its rarity has a premium right? whatever that is.

oranges usually have special effects that aren't always immediately apparent
that said, there are some really bad legendaries out there

A loading message in game once said, that just because something is more rare, doesn't make it better.

Go with whatever is more useful/effective, since not all legendaries are that great, and sucks when you have a low level one where it's not anywhere near as useful as higher level normal weapons.

Some orange guns can be quite hard to see the benefit though. Like Moxxi's good and bad touch healing with damage over time effects.

Moxxi's Touches are purple quality. They're quite effective even if you ignore the slight healing-you-when-you-deal-elemental-damage bonus.

Try out the orange gun, and try the white one. A high enough level difference can render the orange one obsolete. (But you can always stick it into Claptrap's 4-slot locker and let another, lower-level character take it out...)

Always test out your legendaries. Sometimes they prove quite effective since they do wonky special effects.
