F.I.E .25 guardian?

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...?Item=33874537



I have just found an old .25 caliber pistol on gunbroker. For a small .25, it is a damn good looking pistol(better looking than the raven ). Seeing that i already bought 4 small caliber pistols last week i don't plan on bidding on it... Still, I might consider looking for one in the future... It looks like its made out of steel rather than pot metal, and the auction says the action is solid. Do you think this gun is worth $30-40(bidding increase, shipping, and transfer fee)?

Can anyone tell me more about the company and pistol?

No +1. The cardboard boxes they came in were better than the F.I.E.s. POJ in every area.

It's a .25 and called a Guardian? That's an oxymoron. Is that tape on the grip?
If you like small autos then go for it but consider trading them all in for one quality large auto.

Anything in .25acp is a waste of time and money.

I am insulted.

I can't believe that came from a gun owner. :barf:

I would disagree with waste of time since shooting anything is time well spent. But a waste of money...definitely.

Ive shot a number of .25acp's over the years and all of them regardless of manufacturer were jam-o-matic pieces of junk.Ammo is expensive and weak.
