    Yes, saw it in my local gun shop about two months ago. Didn't handle it, however.

    Gunbroker is flooded with them. Not sure how good the "Magnum Research" made weapons are. I own Baby Eagles and a Desert Eagle (Israeli made, Magnum Research Imported) and those two are stellar weapons. MR also has a 1911 on the market, plus a Walther P99 (IIRC) clone.

    The Micro Eagle came out just prior to the 2010 elections and panic pricing. A little over priced IMO and no reputation to speak of for the firearms (rifles, rifle bore handguns, and now their pistols).

    To me, their Micro Eagle, and Baby Eagle FA (Walther clone) were/are playing on the reputation of the Israeli guns.

    It's a Czech weapon, the Kevin:

    I have one; more comfortable than a LCP with easier takedown. Easier to conceal and accurate enough for what it is: I love it for dress pants carry. Did a lot of on-line research before buying it and didn't find much negative relative to other .380s, although one poster worried that he'd put his off-hand index finger over the muzzle????

    Overpriced, though. Bought mine as it was mis-priced at $380.00, I think the clerk just transcribed the calibre to the price tag.

    Thanks, CPO, I knew they were a rebrand of someone else's design, but couldn't dig it up. CDNN sent an ad this past week advertising them for $299:

    Magnum Research Micro Desert Eagle .380acp 2.22" Barrel Nickel Micro-Compact
    Double Action Only 1-6rd Mag
    #MAGME380 $299.99

    That's a GREAT price! I was happy with $380 'cause the one next to it in my LGS was around $560? and looking on-line last fall the pest prices were in the low $500s.
