Wow. Just purchased it about a week ago and took it to the range yesterday. No complaints. Fired everything I put thru it and with great precision. Trigger is super smooth. I just love this gun. So what if its sold under the name Baby Desert Eagle ll, there's nothing baby about it.

I've had one got years and years and love it. I got the whole kit, pretty much intact (minus the Uzi 9mm ammo). It's a great shooter and easy to maintain, but finding .41AE can be challenging.

I've had one for a few weeks now and it has been good but not great imho
I have the large frame, all steel model. I'm 6'3" and 255 lbs and have large hands so for me it's just perfect.

I have the full size but polymer, my hands are too big for it. I'm 6,4 270 and its a pain in the butt to rack the slide
I don't have a problem with the slide. Not every handgun is made for everyone. Hand shapes are different. I'm sure if you advertise it you could sell it easy. I live in south central Georgia and they are very hard to find. On the Internet everyone is out of stock.

Love mine. Have the semi-compact all steel .45 ACP. Shoots great, never has a problem. I'm reluctant to fully torture test it, but so far shoots everything without a hiccup.

I will mention that the slide width and height is a problem compared to other handguns. Part of it is the way it is designed with the slide riding within the frame instead of on top of it like most handguns. This allows a much tighter fit between parts but the compromise is not much grip space. It takes some getting used to. I've got it down on mine no problem but this gun has "bit" my twice before I practiced.

It is definitely one of the best handguns on the market though. For a DA/SA setup there aren't many other guns with a comparable level of quality and the price is hard to beat. They are not cheap, but still more affordable than a SIG or HK, which I'd put in the same class any day of the week. (Said as a long time SIG and HK fan)

Glad to find another satisfied owner. My Jericho has not yet bit me and hopefully it won't. I'm looking forward to hitting the range with it again. I have shot Sig's, never an HK, but nothing I've shot feels as right as the Jericho/ Baby Desert Eagle.

KBI Jericho 941

Hello fellow 941 owners, I recently joined FirearmsTalk and noticed this post albeit it is a bit old. Just checking around for some components for reloading although I really haven't shot this much in the 41AE config. I even have the original UZI 170 grain JHP 41AE box of fifty it came with. I did manage to get some IMI 41AE brass years ago and there is probably 300 or so of the original 500 that was in the bag. The rest have been plowed under several times sitting in the farmers field, who would have known they would become a rarity! I also have some 170 grain JHP bullets hanging around that I'll reload someday. I have experimented reloading the 41AE brass with the 210 grain FMJ's that are readily available with some suggested powder weights. No Chrony results yet just primer checks for overpressure signs and to see how it felt. I have read they almost mirror the 40 S&W load specs. I do love the way it handles as a 9mm version. Attached are a few pictures of the handgun.................Rob
