    FNP-9 vs. Baby Eagle 9mm

    Hey, I'm in the market for a fairly cheap, but well made 9mm. I've narrowed it down to fnp-9 or the baby eagle (jericho 941). I was wondering if anyone has handled one or both of these firearms. I'm looking for reliability, accuracy, etc. I have not personally handled either one. Also, if you have a working knowledge of a different one.

    I've have handled the Baby Eagle in 40 and have shot the FNP9 and I own a Browning Pro 40 (Same gun as the FNP). They both are great weapons. It's a personal matter to which you think feel better in your hand. You can't go wrong with either in my opinion.

    Hi essmith,
    I've got a Jericho 941 in 9mm and love it.
    Well made easy and fun to shoot. My friend has just bought a Glock 17 and well.......people are gonna hate me .....but the Jericho is the better gun .

    I love my Sig 226, but I just bought a CZ P-01 and I have to say it's the S**T! It's solid, compact, accurate, low recoil, feels great in the hand, and is great all around. I've also read that the full size CZ SP-01 is a beast. Good Luck!

    The FN is a much lighter weapon but performs amazingly well. It's easier to manipulate the slide on the FN due to surface area. The Baby Eagle has a diminutive gripping surface on the slide plus the safety is on the slide and could, potentially, be activted while trying to clear a jam of some sort.

    The FNP-9 (or Browning Pro 9) would be easier to carry while the Baby Eagle might be more fun to shoot due to the steel frame and CZ-like ergonomics. Both are excellent guns.

    Longevity might prefer the Baby Eagle... maybe.

    Of the two I would go with FN, no question. I am not a fan of slide-mounted levers of any kind. The FNP is also significantly lighter and comes with an extra mag if bought new.

    I should have been more clear: FNPs come with three mags.
