Bought this little colt 25 auto not sure what model I have and what the value of it is any help ? What year mfg ? Thanks
Colt Jr. made by Astra I believe. 1958-68--no box, some wear, thinking 300-400
Even though it don't say that it is what it is. They are great little firearms. I have an Astra Firecat and it is a rock solid little pistol.
OK, it is the FIE model. Not as many of those, I should never answer a question again.
The guy I got this one from has another but where this one says caliber that one says calibre I think it was thanks grasshopper
Grasshopper has it right. The Junior Colt was marked "Made in Spain", & was available in .22 short & .25 ACP. MSRP was $29.95. Astra made the same gun with their name on it; only difference was that it had plastic grips & cost only $19.95.
EDIT: I stand corrected; your gun is, in fact, one of the later guns made for Colt by Firearms International.
This one does not say made in Spain on it
The guns are very low recoiling because of the fairly anemic .25 ACP round and the overall weight of the all-metal pistol coming in at nearly a pound. But this little shooter is also an interesting storyteller about America’s shifting gun laws. The gun was originally made under a Colt license in Spain by Astra to cut down on the price.
Colt had some of the later models, assembled in Florida to get around the 1968 Gun Control Act that effectively ended the importation of the Spanish-made Juniors.
(They do not have the Made In Spain stamp behind the trigger on the right hand side.)

The one 'HenryOReily' referenced went for $535.
