Question about Uzi Eagle
A few days ago, while on a pawn shop troll, I ran across a pistol labelled as and "Uzi Eagle", Now, I know that particular name was used by one of the importers of the IWI Jericho 941, and is basically the same gun as the Magnum Research Baby Eagle. It was a .40 S&W, and had some holster wear, mainly on the muzzle, but was basically in pretty good condition. I have always liked the styling on these guns, and I like the way they feel in my hand (I prefer an all-metal gun to polymer, and my daily carry is almost as heavy as the Jericho, so weight isn't an issue for me).
Here's the sticking point: they had it marked $499.:smt107 Am I missing something? Given that you can buy a brand-new one for around $40-$50 more, that seems outrageously expensive. Or is there something about the older models that make them more desirable? Anybody know?
They're essentially the same. The original name for the gun was Jericho 941 because it came with a 9mm barrel and the defunct .41 Action Express. When the US started importing them, depending on who imported them (KBI, Magnum Research, Charles Daly, etc), they got stamped a number of different names including Baby Eagle, Uzi Eagle, Desert Eagle, Baby Desert Eagle, and now Baby Eagle II.
