    Hey guys,

    Just wondering if anyone knows of a M.R. forum floating around. I Googled it, but no luck that I could find. I have a Baby Eagle I'm going to pick up at the end of the month, so I'd like to start learning of any quirks I might need to know about. :D

    If no luck, is the CZ forum the next best bet? I'm familiar with that one.

    Thanks!

    There is no Magnum Research forum that I have seen, the CZ Clone club is going to be your best bet. Which Baby Eagle are you picking up? I own a full size 9mm and you can search these forums for my impressions of the gun and read about the work that has been done to it.

    Thanks, Sean. I'm picking up a full-size, steel frame, 9mm. I'm buying FTF from a guy for $400. The gun is in immaculate conidition... He got it from a guy who bought it for his wife; she fired 10 rds through it and didn't like it, so they sold it to him, and he put it in his safe. I already committed to buying it, but won't have the funds until the end of the month.

    I searched the forums here, on TFL, and a couple others for BE information, and what I found helped me decide on it. It sounds like a great gun! I was considering the BE, Witness, and CZ75, but I like the look and feel of the BE the most. BTW, off the top of your head, you wouldn't happen to know if anyone makes an extended slide release for them, do you? It just seems a little too far away. Reachable, but out there. That's my only hang up with the gun, and I can live with that!

    I think this forum has a dedicated Baby Eagle section. . .never have looked since I was only interested in the DE forums.

    It appears that some Baby Eagles are fitted with shorter slide releases. Mine appears to be the longer Jericho style, with a polygonal barrel and slide mounted decocker, but I think you can still purchase the other style directly from Magnum Research.

    All of the CZ75 style pistols fit my hands very well but it was this one that showed up on display at the gun shop and followed me home 3 days later.

    Both GlockTalk and the AR15 forum have sections for the Desert Eagle which will have some threads on the Baby Eagle. Though there's not a whole lot.....

    I wish there was more support for the BE's - I had one, and could not say anything bad about it (sold it to go with a P228 and now P226 in 9MM).

    Your best bet would be to look at the bigger forums (THR, TFL, GlockTalk, SigForum, etc.), and do searches on the specific model. You should find a decent amount of information.
