    I know they based on the CZ-75 but I've always liked how they look and have been wanting one for quite a while...

    Since they don't seem very easy to come by, so I will have to activity search for one.

    What is the price range for an original Jericho 941 stamped example verses an UZI Eagle or Desert Eagle stamped one?

    Which ones are more desirable? I believe I want version with the Decocker...

    What is your overall option of these pistols?

    I've have one for several years now.

    Very accurate, completely reliable, heavy, I would rather have the frame safety but IIRC it is no an option, trigger was a bit gritty at first even though it was used when I (actually my wife bought it "It looked like those CZs you like) got it. She paid little of nothing for it because the guy at the out of the way GS had never seen one $225 I think. The trigger has smoothed up nicely DA and the SA is actually nicer that any of my CZs.

    I have a full sized CZ as well. if it is just for range and not carry (unless you are 6'13" tall, 300 lbs) it is great alternative to the CZ especially with CZ prices catching up to their true value.

    The only, minor complaint I can come up with, to make myself look fair, is that the decocker/safety is a bit stiff on mine and it makes it, with its location, a bit awkward.

    I want a stainless model just like Timothy Olyphant used as the villan in Live Free or Die Hard. It caught my eye then, and I have looked for a nice stainless model without any success for several years. I have read that these are awesome guns. Anything even related to a CZ is usually a fine product. These are just hard to come across. Any of you guys know where I can find one of these in stainless?

    If they do, I want it! :tongueout:
     
  5. The Jericho 941 is normally used when talking about the early KBI imports. They include both barrels and spring assemblies. The .41 Action Express is all by impossible to find anymore, but a wouldn't turn a full kit down. If you find someone selling the kit, expect to pay $700-$1000 depending on the brass included (in .41AE.) They are difficult to find.

    UZI, Mossberg and Magnum Research have imported them over the years. Magnum Research started bringing them stateside again a couple of years ago after Kahr bought them out. They can be ordered by most gun stores.

    There are three sizes available, in steel and polymer, in three calibers. You have a full size, a semi-compact (shorter barrel, full size grip) and a compact (shorter barrel and grip.)

    In the wild, the KBI brings more money (MSRP+) while the UZI is a wash. Because some states ban it by name, some folks think it is worth more, but some folks can't buy them. I have never seen a Mossberg branded one. Mine is Magnum Research, I bought it new last year. I paid $500 for it.

    Current models have the decocker built in. When you flip the safety down, it decocks. If you flip it back up, you are in DA, after the first shot it is SA. Drop the safety, you decock it.

    The models with the frame mounted safety/decocker are rarer and bring a premium.

    I personally believe that the Jericho/Baby Eagle is the best looking semi-automatic hangun on earth. Thankfully it is also well balanced and a very sweet shooter.

    And pics, because we care...

    This is next to a Glock 19 for size comparison. I actually use my 19's molded holster for carry of the Jericho. Again, mine is a compact.

    And it dawns on me you are local. I bought mine from Five Point Firearms in Shelbyville. He matched Bud's price for me to save me the drive. Larry and his wife are some great folks, and I love doing business with them.

    Zack, they are outstanding pistols. Quality, in my opinion, is equal to CZ itself. The only CZ 75 based pistols I think are better quality are the much more expensive Sphinx guns.

    Here's mine in 45ACP. :cool:

    Just gotta find one that's not a $1000.

    I don't mind if they are worth that much...but I don't think they are.

    Yeah, that's ridiculous

    There are plenty of Baby Eagles on GB for decent prices.

    I thought you guys were kidding :wow:

    That one joker even has the nerve, besides wanting $1,800 as a BIN to want you to pay $50 for the SHIPPING.

    That is insane!!!!!

    :steamed:

    I'm not even looking for one. I feel like contacting them and asking if they'd give ME a grand for mine if they can get those prices

    Good point. Want a 2nd Gen clone? :supergrin:
     
  18. It is nice to see the CZs and Jerichos are finally getting some recognition here in the states, but those prices are insane on GB.

    I would like to get an original Jericho 941 in the box set, but the gentleman I know who has one has yet to give me a price. I have been stockpiling .41AE brass for that day.

    I liked the .41 AE concept, but I have never laid eyes on a piece of the brass in my little corner of the world.

    My first thought when I saw my Jericho was "Please let it be a 9mm or have the 9mm barrel"
     
  20. The Jericho is a nicely built gun. Only downside is because it's a CZ clone and not a true spec CZ itself, parts availability is a crapshoot whether CZ parts will fit it.
