What are the exact differences in these pistols?

It is my understanding that the IMI Jericho was a made in Isreal Tanfoglio, using all Tanfoglio parts, being renamed "Jericho" Also, will magazines interchange between these three pistols. (and I guess I should ask, barrels, slides, other part interchangability?)

Seems to me that these 3 are more similar, than dis-similar.

Yes magazines will interchange and no the Jericho weren't made out of tanfoglio parts, they were essentially Cz spin offs being made with Italian parts, I've had a tanfoglio and really enjoyed it but I have a Jericho on my hip this exact moment and I don't think I'll ever get rid of it

Tanfoglio is Italian, and I beleive they do supply parts for the Jericho!

The Jericho/Baby Eagle are Tanfoglio guns, finished in Israel. Many parts interchange, including magazines.

That said, the new Tanfoglio Force/EAA Witness are all large frame; A 9mm or .40 mag for the new generation will not fit Jericho/BDE pistols.

So let me get this correct?? A newer Tanfoglio, full size frsme, will not part interchsnge with these other pistols?? I do not know for sure...but I have my doubts about this statement.

The Tanfoglio Force, is the template these other guns were made from

Am I right on this, or wrong?

Thank you for your input

He is saying that all new Tanfoglio's are large frame guns except for their Classic line, and the Jericho is still based off small frame Tanfoglio's, so the MAGS won't interchnge. I beleive.

Correct. The trigger bar is also a no-go, since it's based on the mag well dimensions.

There are other differences too, though. The sear assy. in a Force/Witness is set up for C&L; They don't have the tang for the decocker to work. Putting a witness sear in a BDE will make the decock function inop (though you could pull the trigger with the decocker engaged and accomplish the same thing, since the FP will be retracted). The Jericho/BDE use the old pre-Witness TA-90 decocker sear.

Grips panels also won't interchange, as the BDE grip is profiled differently than the Witness.

Parts are readily available for the Jericho. and yes, they are Tanfoglio parts. small-frame parts do fit. Indeed, early Witness pistols used the same parts outside the frame and slide.
