I recently got a new Baby Eagle. I love it. It is a little pricey to shoot, but the feel is great. this is the first .45 acp that I have ever shot or owned and so far I am impressed. The only wish is that I could change the grips. The feel of the pistol is good but upgrading the grips always makes such a huge difference. However, nobody makes aftermarket grips for the baby eagle, let alone the .45 acp baby eagle. Anyone have any secret sources they are willing to share?

PS: When people see that I do carry a baby eagle they immediately reference counterstrike and the movies. I can see why people get frustrated with the fanboy aspect of it.

I had added the Hogue wrap-around fingergroove grips to my BE, and really liked how they felt. You should be able to find these, though I can't remember where I ordered them from (they definitely aren't readily available).

By any chance, would CZ grips fit at all? I'm guessing no, but it may be worth a shot.

I am not sure about the CZ Grips. Maybe with some modifications. I would like to look at a pair to compare them next to my BE Grips. From what I understand though, the Baby Eagle was based on the CZ design so they should be somewhat similar.

You'll have to use hand-all slip on's. To my knowledge, no one is making aftermarket grips for the .45 Baby. 9mm & .40, yes, but not .45. Different frame. However, they're becoming quite popular these days, so it may just be a matter of time.

CZ screw is in a different place....

Lots of options by Hogue, both rubber and wood, for the 9 and 40, but not the 45. Good luck!
