Default colt junior 25 automatic

I have what I believe is a Colt Junior 25 Automatic. It does not include the box and only one clip.. I'm no expert but probably 90%. SN is OD 1044xx. Manufactured in 1972 or 1973 I believe in Spain Astra?. I had thought about selling it and had an offer from one of the guy at my local gun shop. He said $150 at the most. I think I see these on the WEB gun auction sites for a bit more. Am I missing something?

It is a colt junior. Your manufacture date is wrong.
Real question is does it have a rebounding firing pin?
It's worth about $300 so the ffl's offer wasn't far off leaving room for profit.

A friend just bought one for $200 w/2 box shells. So the $150 offer is about right. I've heard these newer ones were actually made by Colt but I have never bothered to look it up to see if thats true.

They were discontinued in 1968 and recalled in 1980.

pawoodsman it looks like yours was made in 1973(last year of production). In 1968 they could no longer import these pistols so started to manufacture them here(I think).

ToddJ - May I suggest that you open a new thread.

This one was last answered in 2012 and could be called a zombie thread.

Now to try and answer your question. The firing pin does not normally come out. The diagram makes it look like P/N 3 does double duty of extractor and firing pin holder. I would not advise you to work on it if you have limited experience.

Dan- close, not quite. Remove bbl, remove slide. Remove extractor pin, allowing you to remove extractor and extractor spring. Under the spring is firing pin retaining pin. part 6 in illustration HERE: http://www.gunpartscorp.com/Manufacturers/Colt-33188/AutoPistols-35748/Junior-34902.htm

That will allow removal of firing pin and FP spring. Would NOT remove unless replacing. If it needs cleaning flush the FP channel with spray cleaner, lube lightly.
