What handgun was Robert Patrick using in the movie The Marine?

It was a silver/chrome handgun that looked like a baby desert eagle but the safety was on the slide. It looked sweet.

Usually I pay attention to guns in action movies, but the girl playing the kidnapped wife was so cute I just kept looking at and for her. :p

Looks like a Jericho 941 to me.

The safety is on the slide for the Jericho, but this gus has the safety on the frame. So it must be another gun.

It was a Baby Eagle! I have one in 9mm with the frame mounted safety, but mine is not the chromed version. I love my Beagle, the frame mounted safety is far superior in my opinion, because it is much more natural to disengage then to flip it up. The frame mounted safety is how the original was designed(CZ-75) I am not sure why IMI changed it. I do like my Baby Eagle, because you can rack the slide with the safety on and clear the chamber while never disengaging the safety, something the CZ can't do, on a side note the new M&P .45 W/ manual safety can do this.

I found a site which explains the various versions of the Jericho 941:

I talked to Magnum Research and they no longer make or import the frame mounted safety versions anymore. Damn I liked th IPSC version.

I have the chrome baby eagle............wife bought it for me hence the bling, I would have preferred black but anyways.........its damn accurate and reliable BUT heavy.........minimal recoil............AND all the geeks at the range who love the "New Jack City" look love the bling..........always attracts a crowd.....

Never saw the film, saw the posters though. For some reason I've only seen like two factory chromed baby eagles in my life, the standard black oxide finish seems much more common.
