Raven Arms MP-25

Is this legal in MD, or if I win it will I have to have it shipped to a family member in another state (assuming that's legal)?

Wiki link

I don't see it on the Roster http://www.mdsp.org/ if its Grandfathered on the Roster since its been made since the 70's

Why would you want one of them...Jenning/Bryco/Raven doesn't have the best reputation in firearms?

There was one at H&M for $125 when we were there. I don't have anything against little pocket pistols, but for god's sake, get a Beretta.....

I remember...it did nothing for me. I like my P64 as a pocket pistol

Technically, the SCCY could be a pocket pistol, but a 10+1 9mm gets a little heavy in a pocket, even with a polymer frame.

In a moment of combined weakness and curiosity I placed a bid on one in an estate auction.

Oops.

No, it's all black, but that can change....

I'm actually having some trouble imagining this tiny thing in my larger-than-average meathooks (big palms with normal sized fingers - think chimp-like).

Maybe if I tie a brick to it it'll be more effective.

Hell, it might actually make for a decent set of brass knuckles.

The smallest one I have seen is a Bauer .25. This was actually a rather well made little gun modeled after the classic Colt .25.

And not a bad looking little thing, either, when you consider it's probably about the size of a silver dollar pancake.

Mmmm..... pancakes...

I'm honestly not sure if I hope I win this auction....

Find out more about it and make sure it can be transfered to the Republik

How does that work....I'm curious since H&M had that one. Is it legal if it has been in MD all along, and now for sale, but not legal to have it transferred in from another state?

a Raven .25 was the first gun I ever bought. About $60 when I was in college in about 1985ish.

It's the only gun I don't regret selling... Traded it in on a Bersa .22 that was a great gun! Good luck with it!!!

Well, even if I do win it, it sounds like I might be able to trade the thing for a .22.

On a completely unrelated note, does anyone want to maybe possibly at some point trade an absolutely darling little pocket gun for something neat and man-sized?






I'm not sure if I'm kidding.

Well, that's something positive. Maybe I won't take a bath on this for being an idiot.

I think GNLaFrance had a nice '63 Remington Pocket Model Revolver he was trying to get rid of. Maybe he'd be interested in a trade.. serious inquiries only

I don't think you're an idiot.....unless you're paying $500 for the Raven.

I, myself got caught up buying a handgun, and while the gun is not a crap gun, it's just not the gun for me.

It happens.
