i picked it up at the gun show saturday. the only one i saw there. i had been bidding one on gunbroker, and kept getting outbid, so i said F it and quit bidding, went to the show, and came across this beauty.
a Baby Eagle .40 i love. i couldnt be happier. well, i could be, bc i went and shot yesterday, and made a little scratch on the slide where the gun ran across the button on my jean pocket. i was pissed. it does have a little wear, nothing horrible. im bettin it was produced in the 90s because it still has the IMI and not the IWI and its also imported by Magnum Research saying Desert Eagle Pistol.
the gun feels and shoots excellent. and i have stubby fat hands. went and shot 100 rounds flawlessly the other day. nice 2-3 inch groupings at 15 ft. with regular ol Rem JHP 180gr. the trigger is soo smooth and light. the gun has some weight to it, but i love it. it feels nice. the recoil isnt anything i expected. it was very nice and fun to shoot. in fact, it was soo fun, i forgot about ear plugs and after 100 rounds, i couldnt hear for a day and a half. id get another one if i came across one. only paid $380 for this bad boy. havent even really cleaned it yet, just wiped out the barrel, around the ejector and firing pin area. its awsome.
im now lookin to get a 1000 rounds or so, but half fmj half jhp. looked on ammoman.com and theres some good prices imo. eventually i wanna get into reloading so i dont always have to buy ammo. and nothing serious reloading, just able to reload/reuse my own casings after the initial ammo purchase. i dont shoot too much, just enough to feel the power and have some fun.
i still need a holster for it and some mags. only came with 1 mag. 10 round. ive seen alot of 12 round mags, but dont know if theyd stick out or not. im guessing they would. not a problem for range shootin, but not a good idea for carry. id be happy with 2 more 10s and 3 12s.
any advice, comments, or snide remarks would be greatly appreciated
