I have this old 25 auto pistol that has no name on it at all. It does have a serial number that is clear and crisp. I have been told that it is a Colt that has had the markings polished off.

The thing about it is that the trigger is different that I have ever seen on a Colt vest pocket gun. If you look closely at the picture, you will see that the back side of the trigger is cut away. Have you ever seen this on a Colt? Thanks
look

The magazine is an after market magazine and all it says in 25 Colt on the bottom. It does not have a magazine disconnect. It has a grip safety that does not work properly and the safety on the frame is one for the Colt. I have disassembled it and it seems to match the scematics of a colt. I have not compared it side by side with a Colt, but I have taken a micrometer to it, and it the markings were all polished off, they did a good job of keeping the sides parallel, it is within .002" all over. ???

Bob, I got it out again and when measured over the slide, it runs .682 to .684. When measured over the serrations on the slide, it comes to about .670. The frame measures .545 to .550 all over.

This is what got me to wondering if this was a Colt with the stampings polished off. It does not seem to me that .005" would do that. After all, that's only about .0025 per side.

I note that the slide comes to rest abour .010" ahead of the frame also, but I had here-to-fore disregarded that.

There is a little bitty 5 stamped on the trigger guard behind the trigger.

The gun does look a little sharper in person that the photo. I am not a very good photographer and it looks like I had a little oil on my hands when I laid the gun down. :))

Thanks for your interest.
