Jericho 941F

I am looking for some opinions about this gun.

All the inputs (good or bad) will be helpful in choosing this handgun as my next purchase.


Thanks a lot.

Well, let's see...

Pros:
Designed to be concealable, nice and compact, but not too tiny
Easy to shoot
Accurate
16rd mag in 9mm
Slightly longer sight radius than comparable compacts (like the Sig 229)
Really bitchin' name

Cons:
Mag Research version renamed "Baby Eagle", stupid, eh?
Length, still an inch longer than the comparable Sig
Weight, heavier than the P229 by about 4 ounces

As far as reliability compared to other comparable handguns... well, to be honest, I've never had a handgun malfunction unless it was poorly kept or the ammunition was faulty. Keep it well, and shoot good ammo and don't worry about it. My experience with it is that it's a little bit tempermental about certain brands, but all guns do that sometimes. If you liked the CZ75, you'll really like the Jericho. If you can find one chambered in 9x21 IMI, and don't want it, call me. I've heard of a few of them, but never actually seen one.

Good shooter. Got one. Designed off the CZ75. Mags are cheap too. Well, at least here they are. Only complaint would be that the safety is mounted on the slide, I prefer frame-mounted safeties.

If you can get the kit with the .41 AE barrel conversion, do so. Yet even more fun. Hope this helps!
