The .25 ACP is what I call a "Doctor" gun- you stick it in his ear, nose, or throat. A relatively anemic cartridge, some of them actually feed and function very reliably. Value on yours is in the $125-$150 range. Do not expect accuracy beyond "minute of bad guy" at 10 yards. But these were intended as being a "in powder burn range" type of firearm.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
