Hi there, torben. Good to have you on the forum. I work at a gun shop that has an indoor range and the 9mm Baby Eagle is one of our rental guns. It's had countless rounds of the crapiest kinds of ammo run through it and its never had a problem. It shoots nice, has great ergonomics, and is very reliable. It's basic design is influenced heavily by handguns from CZ. Last I heard the IDF was using them. Other than that they're pretty basic DA/SA automatics. Oh, yeah, and if you slap in a full magazine when the slide is locked backed it will drop and chamber a round. Kinda nifty, I think. ~Pistolero

Welcome, Torben! :)

I'm also a big fan of the CZ 75 design and the way that IMI adapted it to the Baby Eagle. I don't really have anything to add beyond Pistolero's informative post, though.

The Baby Eagle is a great pistol. I bought one for my wife back in November and we love it.

Ours has been 100% reliable except for problems we had with a bad aftermarket magazine.

It's pretty heavy which some people may not like, but I prefer it that way myself. Makes it more accurate in my hands.

Plus, it a great value price wise in a full-size service pistol!

I own a clone of the Baby Eagle Full Size 9mm from Bul transmark. Its the Bull Cherokee pistol. As far as I know, there are two differences: Hexagonal barrel in the Baby Eagle and Polymenr in the frame of the Bul.

At the beginning, I had some malfunctions because the pistol needed to be shooted to work fine, but now, I can tell you it is a very nice gun. I have some pictures of this gun in general semiautos, Bul Cherokee.

I was also able to fire a Baby Eagle, and it seems to be that the pistol does not like all the reloaded ammo, so you might have to look for proper reloading if you plan to use reloaded ammo with your gun.

The Bul, that has no hexagonal barrel, takes all the reloaded ammo.

Enjoy your pistol. It is a nice pistol.

I wouldnt buy it, why buy a near copy when for similar price you can buy the real thing. With the CZ 75 catching on in competition your gonna find more and more aftermarket and factory parts and assesories available, sooner or later your gun will need magazines, springs, etc. Be alot easier and cheaper if they are CZ.
