    Re: Colt Automatic Caliber .25 (Junior?)

    Re: Colt Automatic Caliber .25 (Junior?)

    sorry for not getting back to this topic sooner, the paperwork was a letter outlining the purpose of the recall,
    shipping instructions,and a form that one was asked to either accept the changes being made to the gun or not accept the change and then sign off on the form.There was to be a shipping label,I did'nt find that so I called and got an address then shipped ups ground $9.75 ,Tracked shipment ,it arrived at colt 4/17 Will call to verify Mon.
    I should have the gun back in 5 to 7 weeks.any more questions let me know. I'll look at this thread for any updates Thanks, Jim

    Re: Colt Automatic Caliber .25 (Junior?)

    Called Colt today and was told mine needed the upgrade, is going out tomorrow. A nice little gun that I will go back to carrying more for a few reasons. My dad bought it for me, and a couple of years back I found a second one , nib and Junior Colt marked on slide, with papers and a spare nickel mag. To top it off, I found a 22 short conversion unit with 2 mags. Sweet.

    Re: Colt Automatic Caliber .25 (Junior?)

    Hello, Follow-up on Colt Jr.recall, Jr. Came back from Colt today 5/5/08 Inatalled modified firing pin and spring,recall is completed. Per Colt Mfg.Co LLC Only took 21 days from shipping to recieving.However I was under the impression there would be an M stamped inside the ejection port but I do not see one.But Jr. is back and that's how that went.So if you got a Jr. and it hasn't been modified that's all there is to it. Thanks, Jim

    Re: Colt Automatic Caliber .25 (Junior?)

    Mine is at Colt. Looked up the production figures and it is quite amazing that a company which today is making so few guns , once made an incredible number of quality handguns. From 1970 -73 Colt cranked out over 100,000 25 autos. That is just one model. Just as an aside they also made 197,000 22 New Frontiers and Peacemakers from 1970 -76. That only represents a couple of models. Amazing. If Colt wants to get back into the consumer market, they have a steep hill to climb.

    Astra could not have made the complete gun. GCA68 banned the Colt Jr. from being imported.

    Re: Colt Automatic Caliber .25 (Junior?)

    Astra made the gun prior to 1968 and Juniors are marked made in Spain for Colt's , on the frame. The later guns id'd by an OD prefix were assembled by Colt with a Colt top half on a US made frame. After Colt discontinued them they were still offered by FIE in Florida , who continued to make the gu s and sell them, as a model called THE BEST. That is how Colt got around the GCA bs.

    Colt 25 recall

    Well picked it up yesterday. Around 3 weeks turnaround , not bad, and good to go. I guess they don't see many of these any more. The shipping slip was marked"Colt 1903 Auto" .
