    Anyone own/shot one? Saw a decent deal on the Eagle "Uzi" version, just wanted to hear some opinions of people that have handled them.

    yeah, that's disgusting. Get the real deal. if you want a compact .40 look at the CZ 75 compact in .40 and have the original.

    I have a .40 just like the one in the pic (minus gay uzi engraving). They are really heavy for their size, but i dont mind that because I am not a big composite guy. It fits my hands perfectly and is THE MOST comfortable pistol I own by far. Shoots dead on and have not had a FTF as of yet.

    Would recommend.

    Yeah, I've got a 9mm baby eagle and love it. It can definitely double as a sledgehammer if it ever malfunctions, but the weight doesnt bother me that much. It's a lot of fun to shoot.

    I'm not the biggest fan of the "UZI" emblazened on there, but I am more concerned with how it operates than looks....

    Thanks for the opinions so far guys. Much appreciated.

    How is it as far as a CCW gun?

    That.

    It's not about it just being ugly, but if you've ever practiced malfunction drills, which you should if you want to CCW it, it's going to suck doing it with a slide mounted safety.

    Also the fit and finish is better than the Baby eagle. Look at one side by side, I'm not that superficial either, my favorite view of my guns are from the back.

    I just finished my CCL class 2 weeks ago (just waiting on the paperwork). Do appreciate the info though, I'm just trying to get the best weapon as far as practicality and function that I can for a CCW. I have a S.A. XD 45 currently...but that's not exactly concealable (except during the winter months).

    I'll check CZ out though for sure. My CCL instructor was also very anti-safety as far as carrying goes.

    Wife has a 9mm baby eagle, I can attest to the SHITTY THUMB TEARING FUCK YOU SAFETY ON THE SLIDE thing. it shoots pretty well though. I would not buy one.

    It conceals nicely, but is heavy

    Do people not like this as an operational thing, or because it can hit your thumb? My old .32 had a slide mounted safety, but it really didn't hurt if it clipped your thumb.

    Doing misfires drills (tap, rack, BANG) will tear your thumb/palm up with a slide mounted safety.
