well gents .......as the poll for the Gary review service says to keep em comming (all 8 of the people who voted :? ) …… heres another small review for you....and i do mean small Very Happy
MARUSHIN’s COLT 25 AUTOMATIC PISTOL
(pictures below)

Specs
Lenght: 11.2cms / 4 3/8" (muzzle to butt)
Barrel: 5.7 cm / 2 1/4" (open)
Weight: 180g (approx)
Materials: Heavyweight abs & zinc alloy
Grip: Plastic (wood grips are possibly available)

Comments
And i thought the derringer was small ! Laughing .its hard to belive that they actually make automatics this tiny ...... but this "metal look" gun from Marushin is compact ... durable ....and a lot of fun Very Happy

Loading
The magazine pops out with the push of a button which resides nicely at the bottom of the butt.
You then need to load up your carts and these are small fellas Very Happy unscrew the bottom of the cart and insert a 5mm cap so that its facing the bottom of the cart ..... screw the bottom back on.....load the magazine with 6 rounds and your ready to rock Smile

Firing
Obviously first you need to chamber the round by puling the slide back and hearing “click clack”. ….. then all you need do is pull the trigger.
Depending on how fast you fire determines how quick this action is ….. you can however unload the 25 in about 3 seconds ….. and for such a tiny gun .... its LOUD ! Very Happy i think having the caps facing backwards helps to amplify the sound

Cleaning
The Colt 25 is simple to strip down first pull the slide back and lock it with the safety catch .....then unscrew the barrel...... realse the catch and remove the slide by pulling it forward.
Then a series of 'pins' allow you to remove the hammer mechanism (this is fiddley at the best of times but with something this small ..... :S .. its a challenge !!
The weirdest part of this operation is when you come to what can only be described as "the wierd plastic futuristic miniture clothes peg" Very Happy ! this is a tool enclosed in the box wich allows you to remove (and return) a specific part of the internal mechanism ...... without this "thing" .... you wil not be able to successfuly strip the gun down !
Again let me stress as I always do, as you remove the hammer & trigger its important (if not refering to instructions) to make note of how the parts of the hammer & trigger fit together !
Next, clean and oil the gun using whatever cleaning solution / oil you prefer. (personally i would recommend marks cleaning technique of hot water, baking soda & vinegar)
Then once we are cleaned and oiled .... put it all back together ....and your done !

Over all
This really is a fun little peice Very Happy and definatly a specialty item .... if you like derringers you'll like this..cose this is derringer meets automatic Very Happy
not particularly weighty .... but what it lacks in weight it makes up for in a comfortable grip .... and a damn loud bang ! Very Happy
i'm only giving this a 8/10 ..dont get me wrong is a great peice and i'm very pleased with it ...... but you should only think of getting this if you'r into the "novelty" modelguns ....... and this is certainly that Very Happy

Interesting review Gary Marushin's Colt 25 Automatic Pistol Icon_lol The Colt .25 "Pocket" pistol is a rather curious (and tiny!) handgun. These tiny pocket .25's where considered as adequate for self protection in the 1900's as thugs where smaller???? Anyway, the Marushin Colt .25 that i had was a pain to shoot and it really didn't work that well..But, in it's defense, it was a well used example when i received it.

Gary, you are aware that Marushin has made a HW version of the Colt pocket .25 aren't you? It looks like it would weigh as much as the original Colt..Anyway, neat pistol!

Reviving this thread after a thousand years or so. Have this gun, managed to strip it down as it never came with the disassembly tool, now struggling to reassemble the same way.

Thanks for the review btw.

Cheers Andy! I'd actually got about 80% there from trial and error but this was indeed helpful. I've got to find my pliers and gently lock the barrel back in place as the lack of a dedicated tool is a major issue.
