I've got a Baby Eagle ll, large frame, all steel chambered in 40sw and I love it. I wouldn't trade it for anything that wasn't really upscale. Personally, I don't think your getting a good deal.

However anything 1911 I covet like a Treky loser does a Photon Phaser from episode 76 STG5. (Okay, so I just made up all of that, but it serves a purpose and makes its point.)

So were I you I'd jump at the chance. Well, I'd never have the Eagle in the first place, but that doesn't float well in scenario. Lol
By DAO, are you referring to Double Action Only? Because my Baby Eagle ll is Double/single action. Just making sure I understand.

I'm talking about the micro Eagle, the only 380 I know of made by mag research, which is hammerless and DAO. It's the only anything Eagle I can stand the look of, but it just had to be double action! Lol go figure...

Isn't the baby in 9mm, 40 & 45 only?

even as much as i like 1911's and the RIA, i don't feel that's a good trade unless you get some money to boot on the deal. seriously, i feel you could probably sell the Eagle outright and buy a really nice NIB RIA 1911.

I agree with this but then again I hate to buy a gun and trade with it. I would hold on to it or maybe post it on Gunbroker and see what you can get for it.

And you have to replace a sight? Not a good deal to me. I like RIA pistols but that does not sound like a good trade tom e. I'd jump on a baby Eagle for an RIA too of I could find someone with the eagle.

150 his gun and Xtras and you might do OK. Sights are not free and either is your gun.

Thanks for the input guys. Right now the trade talk is on hold he is getting the sight replaced.

I've had the eagle on arms list for a few weeks and so far no lucky. If I was willing to ship it I could have sold it 20 times

go through an FFL and have the buyer pay the shipping costs. if they want it bad enough they will pony up the money.

Yeah I know I can do that but right now I just don't have the time. I'm at school most of the time while the gun is at my parents house locked up
