I've got an IMI Baby Eagle in 9mm. Mine has the frame-mounted safety and no de-cocker. Some of the BE's I've seen out there have frame-mounted safetys. Some have de-cockers (I think), some have both (I think).

Does anyone know of the magazines from all the different versions are interchangeable? Or know where I could find that information?

You could try calling Magnum Research. I don't see where the safety would make a difference on the mags though.

If you look at the mag listings on their web site, it doesn't specify safety type.

Also, DO NOT let anyone convince you to use EAA Witness mags in your Baby Eagle!!! They will fit, but will not feed properly.

Is the BE a CZ variant?

The Baby Eagle is a slight refinement (and marketing gimmick) over the Jericho which is a rip off of the CZ. You're not going to get interchangeability of parts between a BE and a CZ but the ideas are identical.

I used to have a .45 Baby Eagle and fell for the line "Oh yea, you can use EAA Witness .45 mags in it.". It ran perfectly with factory mags and turned into a jam-o-matic with the EAA mags.

This is pretty much the same thing Armalite is doing with AR-24 and AR-24k. Not that I would mind owning one of those.

I guess it's like saying the Kimber is a knockoff of the 1911. :? Although if the magizines won't work there must be some internal oddities. I wonder what they are.

I thought DKing's characterization was a little hateful, but I didn't say anything. :?

Or you could think that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

That's me, hateful to the core. :lol: I'm glad you didn't say anything about it though, it might have hurt my feelings. :wink: :D

Seems to be a popular design. I just wonder who's not getting their royalties.
