    Barrell 16 inches, barrell is removed by a screw collar, I received some info from someone who says
    that the barrell can be replaced with 9mm barrell and new magazine to convert to 9mm.

    Wow, that looks really cool. A 9mm version would be really fun :D

    I wonder if they can still be found..

    Eagle Rifle

    Hi,
    I have the same rifle. A family friend bought it new in the 60's. I bought it off him for $250.00. It looks exactly like your in the pictures with no front sight. I had a gunsmith put a Tommy gun front sight on it.

    kbondra Welcome to G & G.

    Thanks for pictures of your rifle, its very nice and unique.

    The Eagle was made for three years until the company went bankrupt, they were made in very low numbers. The Eagle company was purchased by Phoenix Arms in Arizona, who resumed production and renamed the Carbine the "Spit fire" or "Spit Fire Carbine". The Spit Fire was made post 1968 and the Eagle pre 68.

    You did really well on the purchase of this carbine. The rifle is said to be closely related to the M3 Grease Gun in mechanics, but I'm not sure. You might try researching history/parts thru the Spitfire and see what you come up with.

    Maybe Rich (mooseman684) or another member has some more information on this rifle.
