Today is like Christmas in March!

Reader DoninSacto1 gifted me a .25 to add to my collection.

It's a Raven MP-25.  The direct antecedent to the Phoenix Raven that I already had.  The safety indicates that this is a "late" version of the gun.  Collection "Rim-Of-Fire" twenty-fives is almost like collecting Lugers, no?

Alike but for the roll-marks and grip materials.  There's an important difference in function, however:  The Phoenix made gun has a magazine disconnect.

The magazines are close enough to the same so as to be interchangeable.  Phoenix has markings all over it.


  1. I just gotta say that's a heck of a nice move by DoninSacto1. Hat's off to you, sir!

    Now I think I need to take my .25 next time I go down to the range.

    1. You ain't just whistling Dixie!

      I am at a loss to express my gratitude.
