French Unique .25 ACP.. Anybody know about these
My father in law gave me one a few days ago. It was spray painted black and very dirty.. I have it stripped so far and cleaned.. I'm trying to do some research on it and it's very similar to the model 10 but with some differences.. It has 5 round magazine, the 10 is a 6 round.. Also it has curved slots on the slide and the 10 has straight slots.. I cannot find 1 like this one at all on the net..the slide reads--
Pistolet Automatique
"Unique" Modele Cal. 6.35

The frame has 2088 which I'm assuming is the serial number

Unless I am mistaken and I quite often am it was made in Spain and sold to the French for use in WWI. The Spaniards made lots of pistols for the French in WWI in both .25ACP and .32ACP. I have a Vesta in .32ACP and it is as solid as the day it was made and shoots good. It is very accurate also. In great shape for a 100 year old gun.

Wow, times have changed. I can not imagine using a .25 acp in combat!!! I am unimpressed with the 9 mm:eek:

Handguns were a symbol of rank with the Europeans. It dates back to the sword/sabre days. The officers and senior NCOs carried them. Carried over to many Asian countries. Enlisted - Rifle Senior NCO - Handgun. Stopping power had little to do with it. If it was fired in anger, it was point blank to the head of an insubordinate private or as a coup de gras for an executed deserter/enemy soldier.

Name used on pistols made by Pyrenees in Hemadaye France. Company founded in 1923, had about 2 dozen trade names. In 1939, dropped all the trade names in favor of Unique. They made everything from .22 to .380, including .25 ACP. There were some changes in the exterior over time (grooves on slide, etc) Not a high dollar gun, not pot metal junk either.
