    No , they are all "made" in Israel from parts manufactured in Italy by Tangfolglio, its a copy of the CZ, they are excellent guns, i have the .45 version.

    i thought you guys spoke english down under? good lord, that was tough to read.

    The CZ 75, TZ 75, the Jericho 941 and the IWI/IMI Baby Desert Eagle are all essentially the same gun. I believe they are very similar in design to the Browning High Power 9mm. The Baby Eagle specifically has seen many itterations, such as the rare two tone finish, chrome finish and various calibers. They were available in 9mm, 40s&w, 41AE and 45ACP.

    Initially they were all steel. But have since been changed to polymer framed guns. Most recently the baby eagle was changed to a striker fired weapon, with to me copies the walter p99 and its counterparts.





    can you tell i <3 MRI guns? lol well the steel ones at least.

    if youre talking about the all metal Jericho model, it is a fantastic gun. it fits the hand, the weight keeps felt recoil to a minimum, the trigger is soft as hell, and follow up shots are a piece of cake with it. LOVE IT

    if youre talking about the new plastic fantastic baby desert eagle that is a poor copy of the Walther P99, then that thing is utter crap. the trigger travel on it is a mile long before it even gets to its firing point. it looks cheap, feels cheap, and is cheap. DO NOT LIKE
    Guns don't kill people, it's mostly the bullets.

    The Collector, Magnum research doesnt make anything they are just a weapons importer, based in Minnesota, i believe they just close up shop.

    When they were imported by KBI and Mossberg they were called Jericho, Magnum Research calls them baby eagle- same gun, they are all just a copy of the CZ 75, as to the Holster, any holster that fit a CZ75 9mm will fit your Gun.

    The Israeli "made" guns are very tightly made and will need about 200 rounds through them to establish reliability if you choose to carry it for SD.
    Also they come with a short front sight and tall rear sight so you will hit about 5 inches high even with a 6o'clock hold, that is due to the Israeli method of shooting.

    MRI didnt close shop, but they were purchased by Kahr Arms... also, they do a lot of manufacturing here in the states now as they did in the past. The manufacturing facilities have been in israel for the past few years at IWI... before that they did a short stint here in the states and then before that it was in israel at IMI which was the first name for IWI.
