I have a Fraser .25 Auto that I purchased about 18 yrs. ago for about $150. I think that it was made by a company in Michigan? It is a stainless steel copy of the Baby Browning .25. It appears very well made and finished and I believe that Browning parts and magazines are interchangable? I was wondering how long these were made and are there many around?
Thanks

You may have a Bauer .25 pistol, which if I remember, was made in Fraser, Michigan. They are a really nice copy of the Baby Browning. Enjoy!

The Fraser .25 was a copy of the Bauer made until 1990. The Bauer was a stainless steel copy of the Baby Browning and made from about 1971-1984. Both the Fraser & Bauer were made in Fraser, MI. Hope this helps!
