View Full Version : iwi baby eagle .45 - opinions please

March 25, 2012, 21:27
i have about decided to get the baby eagle .45 acp, after much lookin around. the size is nice & compact, its steel, 10 rd mags, rail, fits my hand very well, well proven using muzzie targets. the double action pull was a bit rough, but i assume it will smooth out. any opinions before i pull the lanyard on this? it is based on the cz75 design, and i know baby eagle is a puss name for a weapon.

My IWI Baby Eagle in .45 acp is quite the shooter. Little heavy but is extremely accurate w/ 185 grain +P and 200 grain. Gotta Luv the israelis. Other nice thing is it takes EAA Witness mags as well

It should - the slide and frame are made in Italy by Tanfoglio.:shades:
Good solid pistol, enjoy it.

Is there any love for the CZ 97?

Why the IMI BE? Size? Materials?

Beat me to it. Have you checked out the 97? Mine was a sweet shooter.

I found the 97 to have a larger grip contour which doesn;t fit me as well as the Baby Eagle. Other than that I like the CZ97

be is fairly flat, concealable, about commander size, 10 shots, jew tested on real muzzies. i have yet to lay hand on a 97.
