Here is a repost on the Colt .25!
The Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket .25 semi-auto was designed by John Moses Browning and was manufactured from 1908 to 1948. Mr. Browning also developed the cartridge the .25ACP. A magazine disconnect safety was added in 1916. Around 420,000 were made.
The Colt Junior Pocket Model was introduced in 1958 and made by Astra in Spain for Colt chambered in .25ACP. A .22 version was introduced one year later. The Gun Control Act of 1968 made the import of this handgun illegal, so production shifted to the USA and was was reintroduced in 1970 and produced until 1972.
Bottom a Model 1908 produced around 1920, above a Pocket Model in the last year of production in the US. They are both fun to shoot and very reliable. Although considered too weak a cartridge now for self defense, these are wonderful handguns!
I hope everyone has a great week!
