    Hello,

    I am looking for a 9MM for around $550... I am thinking about a Baby Eagle full size steel frame. I am looking for something full size with a crisp trigger pull. Sig's have too long of a pull and I don't really care for Glocks. How about a beretta and what do you guys think about the Baby Eagle (I loved the trigger pull in the store...)?

    I currently have a Ruger Mark III Comp Gov't and a H&K USP .45 Tactical and am looking for something in the middle...

    Thanks!

    Check out an FNP 9

    A lot like an HK, for a lot less.

    if you're going to skip glocks and sigs, try a single action CZ for the 'crispness'. alternatively, also take a look at the EAA match/elite products which are comparable to the CZs in ergos and can also come with nice single action triggers. both can come in 9 and 40.

    XD, M&P.

    Edit: what's up with the automatic lower case?

    Edit: weird, if I delete the edit, it goes back to lower case. If I leave it, its stays in capitals.

    M&Ps have crisp, short trigger pulls, check out an M&P9.

    And if you do buy one, get the money rebate because the mags take for everrr!

    I have a Baby Eagle Semi-Compact in 9mm, It is the same grip/frame as a Fullsize, but it has a shorter Barrel.

    I love mine, and will never sell it, I Have full trust in it, I have put down 300rds no FTF no FTE no jams of any kind.

    It is the best out of the box accuracy I have ever shot, and the trigger pull is just straight Sexy!!!

    I would go with an older one, with IMI or IWI on the grips.. mine was befor MR took over and Eff'd it all up... I dont care for the BEII.

    thats just my 2 cents

    Well I ended up with a 9mm IWI Baby Eagle. Full size, steel with two 15rd. mags and a rail. It just felt so good in my hand and I love the trigger. It feels as good or better than my USP tactical...

    I will post a range report when I take delivery in 7-10 days...

    XD or M&P.. the IWI BE is a good choice, but Magnum Research is not importing them any more.. they are now going to be imported with the name Jericho (which is the original name), but i don't know who is going to import them.. i don't know if there are any issues with warranty/service with MR.. you might want to look at Tangfolio, EAA, or CZ too.. if the BE interests you..

    For that price, you can get a Witness Match.

    Beretta PX4

    17 round magazine, great ergonomics, easy to clean and maintain, and very accurate. However, it is a bit bulky to carry. If you are looking for a small 9MM to carry, the Kahr PM9 is a good choice. I paid $555 for mine plus tax.

    I would look no further than a used SigSauer model. I really like the 239 for concealed and the other larger variants for overall use.
