I had to send my BDE .45 to Magnum Research because it kept jamming on me. It kept getting worse; 1 or 2 rounds every magazine.

My very first shot with my Baby Eagle .45 at a range (75 feet) was a Bulls eye on a standard pistol target. Boy was I excited. The other 4 round fired were not as good, but two were in the 9 ring, one in the 7 and one I couldn't find. I guess I got the yips after the bulls eye.



Great gun. Solid. Probably not for carry, but what a great gun for the home or car.



I think the fellows below may have been shooting either a dirty gun or hollow points with the holes too big. Semi-autos are fussy about their hollow points sometimes. The first thing I would have done is clean the gun and try different ammo. It probably was NOT the gun.

I bought the polyframed, 3.93'' barreled, 9mm for $400.00 NIB and am vary impressed with it so far. It has functioned flawlessly with FMJ and Gold Dot 147gr. HP. I had to drift the rear site to the left a bit, no big deal. The 15rd. mags actually take 17rds. so for me this was a great deal all the way around.

I have used EAA .45 magazines with good results. They were the 10 round version. Easier to find than the Magnum Research ones. Good Luck!

I need to reinstall the trigger spring. Can someone post a pic of the spring (with slide off and looking down)? Does anyone know where to get an exploded view of the BDE full size?

The trigger spring reinstall was simple, I just needed a view of how it went. Here is something I found useful, a schematic view of a CZ-75 (clone).
