Info:

 

I am looking to sell a "Baby" Browning for my brother. It is chambered for 6.35x16 (.25 auto). I have no idea how many rounds have been put through in total, but since it is not exactly the most common cartridge, and judging by the condition, I can't imagine it has seen much use.  This firearm has a manufacturing date of 1968 according to: http://www.browning....tic-pistol.html

The back of the slide is the only place with a few small imperfections. I did my best to show this, but my phone was not about to focus on such a small area. The bottom left has a nicked patch, and the top left, extending to the left ear of the rear sight also has the same.

I have a 1933 FN 1906 VP. in .25 acp. It runs flawless and is a real good shooter for it's size. Those little Brownings are built well. 

 

Good luck with the sale.

Yes, that tickles a couple of my collection criteria. It's a Browning and it's a 25 ACP. And I am broke for a while.

I picked up one of these maybe 30 years ago at a gun show for $45.00 - $50.00 .  It was a really cool gun except who wants to depend on a .25 for self defense.  I would almost take my chances with a baseball bat if someone pointed one of these at me.  But it was a fun little shooter!  The baby browning mags were just a wee bit too wide to fit it if I recall.

Well, the most likely story behind this pistol is that before my brother obtained it, it belonged to our grandfather, who obtained it through the wife of his (at the time) recently deceased friend. From what I understand, she needed the money, and was selling some of his firearms... Our grandfather is not one to have likely purchased a handgun on his own, unless it was included with a collection like that of his buddy's. Fast-forward some 30 years or so, all of our grandfather's firearms were sitting in his basement being neglected, and they were moving, so they divvied them up between their children, and being as our parents are not ones to really take any interest in them, my brother and I ended up with them instead. Since my brother has a couple of other firearms from our grandfather already, and this one really didn't mean anything to him, he wanted to sell it to have a bit of spending money for other projects, but he has now recently sold his house, has obtained a bit of spending money through the sale, and no longer feels the need to sell the pistol. So, that's the story behind it... :segrin:

Trust me, I was considering buying it many times myself to keep it in the family, but being that it's a .25 auto, and one which my grandfather likely never saw besides the day he bought it, I couldn't bring myself to purchasing it.. No doubt it's cool, but it's just not very practical for self defense or even just shooting. Still, I too, am glad he decided to keep it. :tiphat:

I agree. Keep those family heirlooms were they belong. In the family. I've got an old Sears Robuck.22 bolt action that my grandpa bought a long time ago. (Best guess was in the 40s.) It's hard to say how many rounds have been through it. The finish is mostly gone from years of neglect by his children and, of course, grandchildren (me included). That said, it's the gun I learned to shoot and hunt with. And it's still a tack driver. Its already in my will to go to my son. And he knows I'll come back and haunt his arse if he doesn't give it to his child.
