    Hey, I was hunting on evike for a decent gas pistol that was relatively cheap and looked awesome and i came across a pre-order listing for a IWI Jericho 941 (aka the Baby Eagle) and for $65 at 380-430fps i thought it was a steal. Any reccomendations or other background information on this particular pistol would be a great help.

    Here's a brief non-in dept tutorial I found on Youtube: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3KKlJ-6uno]YouTube - Cybergun Jericho 941 Baby Eagle review by Moondog[/ame]

    Well CO2 is pretty cheap, and as long as the gun doesn't fall apart after two cylinders of CO2 or otherwise quit firing, the Jericho looks alright for me. $65 isn't bad for a CO2 pistol, especially a Jericho replica. To keep it working all you have to do is keep putting lubricant on the tip of every CO2 cartridge, right?

    And what about this alternative?

    I actually just purchased the alternative you posted. After reading reviews about the Baby Eagle, both reviews are about the same.
    The 1911 has a slightly higher FPS than the 941. Accuracy wise, they probably are about equal. I have noticed finding a spare mag for the 1911 is a little easier than the 941.

    I personally don't like either because of the long trigger pulls associated with CO2 pistols.

    dude, I'm not saying it's gonna happen to you but I would be a bit cautious of buying co2 pistols. There are some decent ones like the S&W M&P40 I use but there are some real crappy ones out there (I own two of them) and they can fall apart or start having some problems after a few months. If you think you can keep it working, go ahead, but just be careful.
