Lists on the subject

The IWI Baby Eagle is a semi - automatic self - loading pistol. "Baby Eagle" is only the nickname for this weapon , technically it differs completely from the large Desert Eagle .

Originally this weapon was sold under the name Jericho 941 . You can often find them under the name "Hudson Jericho 941", "Hudson Industries Jericho 941" or "UZI Pistol". It was not until a later date that the weapon was given the name "Baby Eagle". Technically, it is based on the Czech ČZ 75 . In Israel - where it is made - the weapon is still sold under the name "Jericho". The name "Baby" Desert Eagle comes from the American importer and distributor of the weapon, Magnum Research Inc.

Every 941 was delivered by the manufacturer with an interchangeable caliber. The weapon could be used with a 9 mm Parabellum or with .41 AE ammunition. Due to its limited distribution, the .41 AE caliber was later no longer produced.

The magazine capacity is 15 rounds for 9 mm Parabellum or 12 rounds .41 AE / .40 S&W. The empty weight is around 1000 g.

The basic model is divided into two versions: with firing pin safety (941) and with trigger safety (941F). Even smaller and lighter versions of the 941F were produced: 941FS, 941FB, 941FBL (plastic) and 941 PS. Furthermore, a sports version with compensator and adjustable visor was sold by Jericho IPSC.
