    Never owned one. I've gone through a few .25acp pistols before, I personally like them.... but 90% of the people who manufacture them put out crappy guns.

    Including Phoenix, and that goes for their newer models too.

    Lots of problems.especially with the release piece that is glued on.Have seen a lot of these come in because the firing pin is breaking thru.The metal is not very strong and the gun is not well made.IMHO get a Beretta or Taurus.They are disposable,once they break do not expect it to get fixed unless the manufacturer has a good warranty.I also have a Saturday night special,Raven P25,which is fun to shoot but I do not expect it to perform like a Colt and once it breaks I will probably just sell it for parts.Oh and Welcome to the forum.I had the Phoenix arms 25 a year ago but had issues with the mag so I sold it.Did you buy the blued or satin finish?

    Colt 1908's vestpockets, and Beretta spitfire .25's are probably the best .25 ACP's you're going to find on the regular.
