Who dose it better, CZ75 or Baby Eagle ???

I know the Baby Eagle is modeled after the CZ 75 so the question is: Is the Baby Eagle superior to the CZ 75? Worse? Something in-between? What are your thoughts.

Copies rarely being as well made as originals, I prefer the CZ. They actually are machined nicer and have better fit and finish.

Fit & Finish

I have a semi-compact BEagle in brushed chrome and a CZ RAMI that I just bought on Monday and cleaned last night. After looking at the internals of both guns, I'd have to give the BEagle the edge, though I haven't had a chance to fire the RAMI yet. The BEagle has over 600 rounds through it, and I have not experienced even one "FT_".

O/U - how dose the semi-compact and compact Baby Eagle compare to the RAMI in terms of size, is the compact BE really that much bigger? Ive never seem both next to each other.

I've owned both in .40, and I prefer the CZ...but not by much. They are both excellent pistols, and feel fantastic in my hands. For some reason I shoot better with the CZ; it may be the grips, as they are the only substantial difference between the two.

One thing I have learned is that Magnum Research "Baby Eagle"/IMI "Jericho" pistols are made to slightly different specs than CZ/EAA/Tangfolio pistols, so that parts are no longer interchangeable. As I've never seen a broken part in either my Baby Eagle or my CZ, this is probably a non-issue.
