Our Assessment: What a great looking little pocket pistol!!! The tip-up barrel feature is great for those who don’t have strong hands. You can load a round in the chamber without having to cycle the slide. While the .25ACP cartridge is not the most powerful, with a CCW permit you can carry this pistol while wearing just about any clothing but a swim suit. 9 rounds of .25ACP are certainly better than throwing rocks.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This pistol is NOT on the California “roster of handguns certified for sale” and can only be sold to a California resident as a private party transaction (PPT) at our shop in Simi Valley. This does not apply to out of state buyers.
