View Full Version : Question: can a CZ Kadet .22LR kit work on an IMI Baby Eagle frame?

If my reading up on calguns is correct, the IMI Baby Eagle/Jericho pistol is nearly identical to the CZ-75 series pistol, so I was curious to know if the Kadet .22LR conversion would work on a Baby Eagle, as I own one in .45ACP, and would like to convert to .22LR for practice, since ammo prices are going insane, and I don't own reloading equipment, nor know anyone who does.

If you don't get an answer here, best place to ask this is over at http://www.czforumsite.info/index.php. There's a lot of CZ expertise there.

There are some minor differences between the Baby Eagle and the CZ that may cause fit problems.

Ah, thank you! I'll check there too.

That's a good question.. the Baby Eagle is essentially a clone of the CZ75 pistols, so I'd expect the conversion to work, but I'm not certain and have never tried it.

can you sow a pic of the ZC 75 that looks like the baby eagle.

the slide safety model is not compatable with the frame safety model

hmm. Then I'd guess probably not for my Baby Eagle, as it has a slide mounted safety, and all the images of the Kadet that I can find show them having frame mounted safeties. :(

I'd say no based on the assumption that Baby Eagles are Tanfoglios, which is a copy of CZ 75Bs. There are some internal differences, and I'm guessing it would make the difference.
