fantastic, really cool...

Thank you for the compliment! It is a very old firearm from the early 1900's, I have stopped firing it recently due to it's age, plus part of one of the grips cracked a little bit the last time I fired it a few months ago, so I figured I would retire it....It belonged to my Grandfather, so it is very special to me. A great little .25 caliber semi-automatic pocket pistol, the magazine holds 6 shots.... and it still shoots just fine, I just don't want to risk damaging it by firing it more, that and it sure would suck to have the thing explode in my hand.....

Yes, i made some internet search to find out what exactly this is.Without doubt, a cute pistol. What a "disaster" would be to be shot by such a tiny thing!

Heh indeed.... did that internet search say anthing about the dates these pistols were manufactured? I do not think they made very many, as mine has a very very low serial #: 1640, and it appears my Grandfather, or whomever he purchased it from, had the barrel replaced as the serial # on that is just in the 700s..... or maybe they made alot of them and I just happen to have one of the first few thousand made, I don't know, and when I reasearched it a while back I couldn't find much about it at all, so I will have to search again.... I'd be interested to know the rarity and value of such a piece.

No, unfortunately i didn't had access on information of that kind. Just some general info, along with a cool, short youtube video named

Ha, that youtube video "Firing Early Spanish Errasti 20th Century .25 ACP Pistol" is my video!!!!!!!

Of this very pistol in the photo being fired!! I like how you can see the empty brass casings being ejected with each shot with the light colored rock in the backround, that was taken up in some small mountains very close to the Arizona/Mexico border. I put up a few vids of this pistol being fired, along with some videos of me and friends firing some of my other firearms.

Isn't it? It is either almost, or more than 100 years old!!! and still fires!!! but I stopped shooting it due to it's age and wanting to keep it in okay condition after part of one of the grips cracked during firing, I also had to have a new firing pin custom made for it a few years back after losing the original.... the barrel and frame have two different serial numbers too... so I dont know which was replaced or when, I know my grandfather used to carry this, and a .32 S & W Long 6 shot revolver everywhere he went after the second world war when he came home to the states. So another sentimental firearm.

You can see it being fired afew times if you search youtube for
"Firing Early Spanish Errasti 20th Century .25 ACP Pistol" - a video I took.
