I had an RG 25 some years ago. It was not t5he best by far but I did kill a raccoon from about 12 feet. THey are not worth much. I see them all the time for around 50 bucks. Most RG weapons are not the best made but will work. I ended up having a firing pin made after the one in it broke and it always fed and functioned as it should. But like most 25's they are not about accuracy. Unless you are about a foot away from your target. To me is way too pricey ammo for a weapon that makes you have to get up close and personal.

They are not worth a lot but they will work if taken care of.

Virtually every Jennings or RG .25 acp I came across in shooting investigations, had been fired once, then jammed. Although there have been fatal shootings with .25's, they are extremely rare and involve a "lucky shot." The overwhelming majority resulted in non-incapacitating wounds.

If you were to shoot someone with a .25, and IF they found out about it, they would be really pi$$ed.
