This is the picture that rondaranger linked to.

Looks like a Raven Arms .25 to me. You might see my post in the thread http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f14/what-you-afraid-shoot-12120/

It looks like it may be a derivative from the Raven Arms .25. Davis or Bryco maybe? They are very inexpensive and attractive little guns that function well enough. Their firing and safety system is very basic in design. They are great fun to shoot but I would not consider carrying one of them for a self defense weapon.

This is a Raven 25 ACP affectionately called "the jam-o-matic" or the original "piss-off gun"

Reasons: They are very prone to jamming issues and if they did fire the only thing you were going to do was really piss the person off, that you might hit with it!

Poor (NO Not A) choice for personal protection in my opinion.

I have to disagree about the reliability of the Raven. These used to be $30 ea if bought 3 at a time, and I sold tons of them back in the 80's. Never had a complaint. I still own one (it hasn't been out of the safe in 15 years) that used to be fired weekly and never had a malfunction of any kind.

Not a gun to carry for defense, but fine for plinking.

The Jennings .22's were called the Jam-O-Matics around here. Very similar to the Raven in construction. The ones that worked were fine, but the ones that jammed were junk.

I disagree about the reliability issue too. I bought one in the early '80s and plinked with it quite a bit and later on my oldest grandson loved to shoot it. It never failed to fire or jammed, ever. I finally traded it off a few years ago becaus the grandson out grew it.

Ravens have probably killed more people in back alley, barroom brawls than any other gun in history. Of course they have also pissed off a bunch more than that.

I thought it might be a Charter arms but the vote goes to Raven. All the same neither are something to own.
