I'm sorry too. My last BE was a great firearm which is why I bought this one. Thanks.
Thank u guys for ur humble opinions. Like u brosupermatt, Im a big guy and i feel comfortable with something full size and something that draws from the IWB flawlessly. Dont get me wrong still a fan of the BE.
Just curious, have you guys tried the Beretta Px4 Storm? Man. Awesome pistol. MikeyCC.
I've had my all steel Bay Eagle for about 6 years now. This Israeli made superstar has fired about 2000 rounds of all kinds of 9mm through it without a failure.
It's accurate, eats any ammo and recoil is insignificant making it easy to back on target. Priced hundreds lower than a Sig, this is a great buy and a truly reliable weapon.
I had my baby eagle for quite a while now and I'm not too happy with it. At 25 yards at the range the gun spreads worst than my ex-girl friends' legs. Even being held in position with a holder, it still spreads. One would go low, the other would go to the left, then it would go low again. It says it holds 13 rds, but it jams up all the time. So instead it's better off holding 12 rds. I think I'm gonna sell it and get a para instead. But that's just my experience compared to everyone else, idk, I might have ended up with the factory reject.
My experience with my steel framed .45 DBE has been absolutely wonderful! Sounds like you may have gotten hold of a bad one. What caliber is it? I would suggest taking it to Sportsman's Warehouse and seeing if their gunsmith can diagnose what's wrong and maybe even put you in touch with the importers in an attempt to resolve your issues. IMI has a MAJOR reputation to uphold and I'm sure they would be more than willing to make things right if you give them the chance.
Bearhorse69 i got a 40 s&w with a polymer grip. Unfortunately I'm already selling it to a friend but I'll give him that same advice.
You Know guys,
I own Kimbers, Sigs, Colts, Beretta's, etc. I am convinced it is the individual piece and not the brand, Ammo has a lot to do with it as well as shooting experience.
There is a guy slaming Kimbers, I have 3 and never had a jam, go figure.
Is quality control paramont anymore? I don't know, maybe if you spend 3K on a wilson Combat.
A friend of mine owns a $125,000 Mercedes, all sorts of problems, another has a 4 year old jaguar, known for problems and it's never been in the shop.
All you can do is keep these things clean, well lubed, find the right ammo and tweek them till they are the way you want them to be.
I quess that is why my wife tells me I spend entirely too much money on them.
I have a CZ 75 that this one is copied from. It is a great pistol. shootsd straight and handles well. Baby eagles do too as I have been told.
i have the .45 dbe. it is one of the most accurate 20 yard & closer handgun i have ever used. i own 10 other handguns. i have shot around 2000 rounds through it already and i'm very satisfied. take down is very easy. i'm 5'9" with medium size hands and i find the weight and grip perfect. slide release and safety are w/in easy reach. target re-acquisition is good, i guess because of its weight that helps tame the recoil. but, just like any large caliber auto, it'll jam if you limp wrist it. it happened to me twice. keep that in mind and you'll have a very pleasant experience with this handgun.
no offense to the Baby Eagle and Desert Eagle Owners but in my humble opionion having shot a DE they're too heavy not enough recoil and fairly in accurate. thats after a guy at the range wondered what the hell was making so much noise he found out at the time i owned a Ruger Blackhawk chambered in .30 carbine he asked to shoot it and almost tattooed himself in the forehead with the foresight.
So, S&W910 isn't a 910 a 9mm S&W pistol? How is the recoil on it?
for the size and caliber it's just fine.
only reason i said what i did is the Baby Eagles and Desert Eagle's are HEAVY and they're mostly high caliber but the 50 acp Desert Eagle i shot had no recoil, and personally if i'm gonna shoot center mast a tad bit of recoil can line up for a next shot to say hmm around the neck or head farely well.
They are heavey compared to some and my cz probably weighs the same as the be but I hav e no problem going from double tap to com to third in the head consistantly. Guess it is what you get used to shooting. I can do the same with my xd all day long. Kind of sounds like a long drawn out ba..ba..bang!
personally i use recoil in a positive manner. wasn't able to do that with the DE.
I know what you are talking about I think using the rise to the right to pull the gun on target.
it won't bite. I didn't either until I found the gun videos. There is more to it than teeny boopers. Who would have guessed?
Considering i don't like it and i've Fired a Full Size DE why would i want to look at a baby one? they're both oversized and too heavy period
The Baby Eagle and the Desert Eagle are 2 totally different guns only related by manufacture.
The baby is a CZ action, fun to shoot, low recoil comes in 9 or .40.all steel or polimer.
The Polimer is only 24 oz and the steel 30...
As for the Desert Eagle, it is a totally different animal which I don't enjoy shooting because of the weight and recoil.
Let's compare apples to apples.
You are missing some very good videos from some very good shooters as well as the not so good.
