In a local pawn shop, I saw a small .25 caliber pistol. Made by Galesi a company in Bresia, Italy
It looked well made, with rounded edges and overall mechanics were solid.
Normally I'm not a admirer of small .25 caliber handguns, but considering a pocket back-up. And if the price is attractive.
Does anyone know anything about this company name and little shooter?

I have seen a few on gunbroker.com averaging $250.00

The one I am looking at in fair condition, their asking $100.00

WORTH IT?

While I have no such experience, or knowledge of the little pistol, here's (http://www.thehighroad.org/archive/index.php/t-247953.html) an older thread thread at THR, that has some good info on it.


Good luck!

Armi Galesi made pocket pistols in .22 short, .22 long, and .25 on the small frame. a larger framed model chambered .22 lr, and an even larger pistol in .32 acp.
The guns are all steel, well made, but internal finish is slightly crude. The .25s generally work well. The design was copied by Sterling Arms in the US, after 1968.
It should be well worth the hundred dollars.
For carry, the Keltec P32 or P 3AT are about the same size, lighter, and use more effective cartridges- but they cost upwards of $250.00.
