Hi to all,
I am need of a firing pin for my Baby Eagle 45 ACP. The factory wants me to send them the pistol for 90 dollars to replace the pin. I am not a Baby Eagle Armour but I am for Glock, Smith and Wesson, and bushmaster. I think I can put the pin in. The kicker is the pin is 20 dollars with the shipping included.
Anyone have any ideas of how to get a pin from some other vendor? These guns are made in Israel with parts from Italy. Why can't I find one firing pin.
Any ideas at this point would be appreciated.
Thanks,
EPR105:confused:

Not much better on the cost I'm afraid, actually a bit higher, but Henning does carry Tanfoglio parts. Tanfoglio makes the guns for IMI/IWI. They come out of the same plant as the Witness pistols.

As above, the IMI Baby Eagle is made in Israel with many parts supplied by Tanfoglio.

"ASSUMING" the firing pins are the same as the Tanfoglio Witness models, you can buy new pins from:

Direct from European American Armory, current importer of the Tanfoglio pistols.

Hi, my dad and I are Baby Eagle fans. He has a full size Baby Eagle in .40, which he had the same problem with. We searched for months to find a replacement, I even tried making him one out of drillbit tool steel stock with no luck. He eventually found a guy who had a lot of surplus firing pins, and he ended up buying 3 or 4 of them at a really good deal. I will ask him in a day or two if he can remember where he got them from. Also, I don't think you'll be able to find the on Numrich Arms, we tried them. Granted it was a few years back, but I truely do feel your pain. Good luck, I'll try to get you that contact info soon.
