Remember to always practice good gun safety and wear eye and ear protection while shooting. We always suggest wearing a good Magnum Research hat, too, for a little extra protection (plus they look good).

Always make sure your pistol is unloaded before you perform any maintenance. And go through your owner's manual every once in a while. There are some good tips on cleaning and taking care of your pistol right in the manual that we send out with every new pistol.

  • Q. Can I convert my Baby Eagle pistol?

    A.
    Sorry, the Baby Eagle pistols in 9mm, .40S&W and .45ACP can not be converted between calibers due to the fact that each slide diameter is a different size. Yes, in the early 1990's there was a conversion kit for the 9mm to .41AE; this has not been available since the mid-90's.

  • Q. What ammunition is recommended for use in my Baby Eagle pistol?

    A.
    Any commercial factory ammunition in full-metal jacket or semi-jacketed (ex. American Eagle, Winchester, Remington, FMC, Hornady, UMC). We do not recommend the use of these ammunitions: Wolf (lacquered steel cases, poor QC) and Sellier & Bellot (very "dirty" ammunition).

  • Q. Can I shoot reloads in my Baby Eagle pistol?

    A.
    I am sorry we do not offer any reloading information since we do not recommend reloading in any of our products. Any use of reloads (problems caused by them) will void the warranty on any MRI product. However, if you are going to reload we suggest you strictly follow all safe reloading information in a good up to date reloading manual.
