    1st review

    This is a nice defense gun able to handel hot loads. However, for every day cc it is not practical due to being a heavy gun. I had an issue that had to be resolved with the fire arm cycling a round but not able to fire the round. It would shot every round racked. With that being said after repair I have not had any issues since. I would suggest only using this as a camp or duty but not as a CC.

    I did the reseach for ths gun and the other models and as far as I know sound like a great gun and is going to be next in line for my collection, but it would not be black maybe chrome or gold. I think is a well made gun, I rent it at the gun range and had no problem. I always got to the range and test new guns before I buy it.

    This firearm is NOT for the person who has A: Poor Marksmanship. B: Poor Shooting Posture. C: Not able to handle the weight and the recoil of a .45!!

    This weapon, just like any weapon, can be very dangerous in the hands of an inexperienced shooter!!

    Great weapon for an Expert Marksman in my opinion.

    CAN be carried as a main duty gun due to it's caliber, but the small clip could pose a major problem if an LEO were to get into a firefight... but the "baby Eagle" will most definately stop someone in their tracks, so if you're a good shot, you shouldnt have to worry about multiple reloads... unless you're in L.A!~~

    Out department went to this weapon (exclusively) in March. Had reservations at first, but the polygonal rifling and fit of the grip won me over. Inherently accurate, better price than the Sig I wanted. Haven't found the triple holster that works with it yet.

    I love my baby-I am petite and this fits me just right. I have been extrememly accurate with it and have not had any problems-even crap ammo flows right through.

    I have the 9mm version of this weapon. This is what I carry on duty. It is very accurate, has good weight(doesn't feel like a child's toy) very reliable and easy to clean and maintain. I love the safety on this weapon, disengages the hammer. Has great toys that can be procured for this gun. Only downside.....good luck finding a duty holster!! It can be done, but everyone looks at it and says.. Dont you think it is time to buy a Glock? NEVER, I say!

    Had reservations at first because ive always carried a GLOC. This thing is GREAT! I have pretty big hands and its size and weight are perfect for me. For the first time I had a gun that shooting was almost an afterthought aside from standard safety procedure.I didnt have to TRY as hard to be accurate. The weight almost entirely soaks up the recoil in the .45 and you barely recognize it at all in the .40. Thats right I liked it so much I just had to get another. VERY solid weapon.

    I owned a .40 cal one of these a few years back. It was all steal which is a good and a bad thing. Good 'cause it helps recoil and bad 'cause it is heavy to tote around. I really liked the look and ergonomics of this gun personally I miss it. The grips need to be rubberized...the hard plastic are kind of cheap feeling. Additionally, on mine the screws holding the grip scales kept coming loose but that can be fixed with some locktight.

    You can get magazines for this with 15 rnds for 9mm and 13 rnds for .40 but they are tough to find sometimes. I am unsure about the .45.
    Overall I like this gun and it is good quality but I doubt it will ever see widespread use in LE.

    If you have trouble finding a holster for the Baby Eagle look for holsters for the Glock 17 the weapons are the same size...actually the Baby Eagle is a little thinner by about 5 hundreths of an inch or so...the holsters work fine......Desantis iwb for Glock 17, Intruder.
