I purchased the full-size, steel Baby Desert Eagle II, 9mm, from Bud's earlier this month and had it out to the range for the first time today. This pistol can be best described with a single word: SOLID - as it is solid in build, solid in design, solid in feel/ergonomics and solid in performance. To say it is a pleasure to shoot is a gross understatement. Moreover, it ate everything fed without a hiccup of any kind, including PMC e-range TMJ 115 grain, Speer Lawman TMJ Cleanfire 124 grain, Federal Premium bonded 124 grain HP, Federal Premium HST 124 grain HP and Speer Gold Dot 124 grain HP. (Per the owner's manual, I did not use any +P or +P+ ammo.) The grip and the single- action trigger pull are, at least for me, nearly perfect. In fact, the single-action trigger pull is downright awesome. One thing that really surprised me is that, with the right belt and OWB holster, the far from diminutive Baby Desert Eagle, with its 4.52" barrel and 8.25 OAL, actually carries well, and that includes concealed carry (at least in cold weather). Much of that is attributable to its rather sleek build. So far, this solid pistol has proven to be nothing short of fantastic. My only criticisms are: 1) I don't particularly like a slide mounted safety/decocker (much preferring the HK P30 frame mounted safety and separate decocker near the hammer), and the safety is quite difficult to disengage, although that may be a moot point due to the very heavy double-action trigger pull; and, 2) the one-year warranty given by the manufacturer, MRI. (I purchased the additional warranty from Buds.)

Got this one and now carry it as my personal defense. It fits my hand and just plain feels great when shooting. Accurate well beyond my current skill level. Recommended it and Bud's to all my co-workers. It will be my backup for USPSA competitions, production minor. Found that my Canik Shark mags work fine in the Baby Eagle II. Shot both at the Range last week...15 yds 1.5" -2.0" groups. Will be working up loads for both. Great guns great service... Bud's will get more of my business!

Wanted to comment on the Gun based on the 2 star review. I shoot IDPA and love this gun it is accurate and very reliable. I have shoot an M&P Pro and H&K P30L, but find the baby eagle to be a much better overall gun. Agree with the weight issue but very reliable. Only con is finding additional barrels.

If you want an excellent firearm, purchase one designed by a country that is surrounded by enemies. The Israeli's clearly knew what they were doing when they designed this full-sized combat pistol for their Armed Forces. I can't recall the pistol misfiring since I purchased it, and it's accuracy is well-suited for targets at the range or pushing back a Syrian Offensive. Outstanding functionality aside, it is also a very attractive piece of equipment. It is the trademark pistol of Spike Spiegel and is also featured in many Hollywood movies for its unique look and original design. I purchased the full sized 9mm variant with all metal construction specifically to use at the range as my go-to pistol. It's weight makes it a very steady shot and as stated before, it can easily push the limits of the 9mm round in terms of accuracy and range. You will surprise yourself with how far out you can achieve a consistent ring of shots, I was very impressed. The firearm comes with a sturdy case with 2 mags and cleaning equipment. Pros: Perfect for the range Accurate as hell Comes with decent accessories Very durable weapon Aftermarket for this pistol is huge, just look for the Israeli Military accessory website Sexy look that says "If we were in the a movie, I'd be the protagonist." Mag interchangeability with Beretta M9's Excellent magazine capacity Smooth operation and feel in both firing it and it's action Cons: Heavy- not recommended for concealed carry, BUT there is a polymer version that is lighter Wide- part of the look of being a smaller version of a desert eage, so it's not recommended for concealed carry For someone who hates sensationalism and writing reviews for products purchased online, I can't recommend this enough if you want a full-sized addition to your arsenal.

Fantastic firearm, many rounds through and no issues. Finish is not bad at all, both mine looks fabulous but I do baby them. If you are rough on them, the finish will get banged up. Sharp edges that rub surfaces will leave marks if you look close. Slide has little slop on the base (I'd say less than one half millimeter) and other moving mechanisms work well enough though a bit stiff brand new. The trigger is little lighter on one more than the other, but they both work well in actuating hammer positions.

I bought this firearm for my wife. She is on the small size and I wanted the weight of the steel frame over the polymer version to minimize the recoil. The smaller slide height and slide mounted safety help her better grip and rack the gun. The grips fit perfectly in her hands. We went though about 300 rounds on the first day and without ANY issues. I fired a few magazine myself (when she would let me), I like the feel and function--a well balance handgun. This was my first purchase with Buds--a GREAT experience! I will be definitely be buying again with Buds.
