I was at a gun show last week and bought a semi-compact (short slide) steel Baby Eagle II. My daughter and I took it to the range yesterday and fired it. The DA trigger pull is definitely not as smooth or light as the trigger pull on her Sig 239, but it is fine for me. I could not tell the difference between the SA trigger pulls of the two pistols. In short, I'm very happy with the pistol and will probably buy a polymer version for concealed carry and for my younger daughter to try.
Before I purchased the pistol I walked around the entire hall and saw only 5 Jerichos for sale. I asked the dealers, and they said everything they had was already on the table. Of the five, 1 was a polymer full-size and the others were all semi-compact - 2 steel and 2 polymer. No compact pistols were available - one dealer said he had never seen one except in pictures.
