I just met with a guy today who's selling a 99.9% condition Baby Eagle. I was in the market for either a EAA Witness (after reading the threads on them here), Beagle, or CZ75, and I received a PM from him about his gun. It is a full-size, steel frame 9mm, with 10 rounds through it. Previous owner bought it for his wife; she shot it and didn't like it, sold it to this fellow who never shot it and kept it in his safe. $400, which is about $70 cheaper than they run in these parts. It's flawless from what I can tell. I only say 99.9% because it has been owned.
I'm so excited! Have to wait until the end of the month though...I'm working a bunch of extra days, but won't get the $$ till the end of the month. I was a little skeptical of a full-size being able to conceal easily, and I'd been planning on a compact version of either of those three, BUT I dropped it in my Cross Breed Super-Tuck and the thing fit very well, and it disappeared! I was wearing shorts and a button-up dress shirt, untucked. OMG OMG OMG I'm so excited!! I bought a P3AT not too long ago, but I didn't get that "Excited" feeling you normally get when buying a gun. That was more of a purchase from a "Ugh, I need something to fill this niche," standpoint. I'm thinking of selling it actually, lol. Ah, crap, I'm rambling. Can ya TELL I'm excited?!?!?!
The two mags hold 17 rounds each. Factory or after market I'm not sure...I only see 9x19 and a T with a triangle (sorta) around it.
I copied this from another post I made here, so that I wouldn't have to type it all out again!!
It's a really nice shooting gun. It's heavy, but it helps a lot...recoil feels like nothin'! The DA trigger is long and heavy, but the SA is pretty darn nice. Almost reminds me a bit of my 1911's trigger when I had it, although there is a very small bit of take-up on it. I have the full-size, steel frame 9mm.
I've put 270 rounds through it so far, and it had one FTE (stovepipe), which I feel wholeheartedly was my fault- limp wrist. I had the gun on target and was taking up the slack on the SA trigger when I went just a bit too far, lol. I didn't have a good grip on it at that point, and it recoiled up very noticeably.
I ran 200 WWB FMJs, 50 Remington JHPs, and 20 Gold Dots. It liked them all! The gun definitely seems accurate, although I wasn't grouping too well at first (new gun to get used to!). The rear sight seems awfully high, and I was shooting high at first. When I started aiming just a little bit lower I got it back on target...just took some getting used to. I will say this: the hest I shot was about 23 yds or so on a B-34 silhouette, and all shots but two (out of probably 50) were in the target. The other two were still on paper. For ME, that's not bad. Up closer (7-10 yds) she groups very nicely. When I had the sights figured out I was grouping at $.50 piece size in the 10 ring.
