Where did that name come from? Love the pistol...hate the name. I very much liked the name Jericho.

Magnum Research rebranded it due to the massive popularity of the desert eagle. I personally feel the baby eagle name has done nothing to promote a fantastic gun.

By labeling every gun they carry a Desert Eagle they diminish the line. Makes me wonder about the level of intelligence at MR. The 1911 & Jerichos I think would sell better if they stood out on their own & not lumped with the Desert Eagle as if they are just smaller versions. Just my 2 cents.

Honestly I think it has to do with marketing. Just about everyone has heard of a Desert Eagle. Why not get one of those you can afford and be able to shoot with out taking your hand off. I think with the smaller caliber and smaller frame... you have a baby. That's just a guess.
