    My dad has had a raven arms .25 acp pistol for years, in fact it was what he wore in an ankle holster as his back up when he was a cop. The firing pin broke not to long ago, and I've looked everywhere to find a replacement part without any luck, and I don't want to spend three days making one, as I do not have a lathe. Any suggestions? I know the pistol ain't worth more than about 70 bucks, but we like the little thing, and right now its not much more than a fancy trot line weight

    I was given a Raven in 1985. For many years it saw a LOT of use at the range. Never a glitch.

    I still have it, but it has not been fired in a long time.

    Great little gun.

    You could just buy another one.

    I own three of those neat little hiddy guns, Kidding, two of them are new in the box. The first older one I use for a backup hiddy gun. Darn thing has never failed to function, and is fairly accurate in room distances. I use the Winchesters with soft lead and a little steel ball in it's nose ammo that gives it some improved expansion. Probably not the most lethal firearm in the world, but I'm sure it would deliver some hurt if you had nothing else.

    I read a Guns and Ammo review of small.25 calliber pistols and the Raven was as good as the Berettas.

    I don't think you can just buy another one. If I'm right, Raven Arms has been out of business for quiet a while.

    true they have been out of business however these pop up on a regular basis in our store. someone comes in wants to make a trade / sale their firearm. they then bring it in and act insulted when you make an offer on it.
