    I saw it at a pawn shop yesterday. It's a Dickson Detective .25ACP semi-auto. It's made by Galesi in Italy (I believe it's the Galesi 503 or 504). Anyway it is tiny, and seems to be well-made. The slide slides back and forth on the frame smoothly with no play. 6-round mag has heel mag release. A true pocket/mouse gun.

    Would you buy this for $139?

    I wouldn't want it and therefore wouldn't buy it - different strokes

    To me no, the only .25 that I would even think about owning would be a baby Browning and that's just because of what it is.

    No, imho......I understand they need to make a profit, but I doubt they gave more than $50.00 for it..

    I have a safe full of .25 acp pistols and never gave more than $50.00 for any of them, except for a Colt. A baby Browning of course would be worth more, but those are the exceptions and not the rule.

    If you are interested in collecting .25 acp's, offer them $75.00. jmho...

    If it functions I would offer $125, just cause it's nice to have a really small gun sometimes. Course I would probably get a .32 for that purpose instead.

    Looking at it, and my experience with pawn shops(yours may differ), you could probably get a comparable gun in much better condition for the same price.

    I would look at what they sell for on gunbroker and go from there. If is a gun that fits your needs then make them an offer.

    I wouldn't buy any .25 at any price.

    If you shoot someone with a .25 and they find out about it they are going to be pissed!
