    1958 until 1968 by Unceta ( In reality it was the Astra 200 ). 1970 untill 1972 by Colt. The Unceta Colt Juniors will be marked " Made in Spain for Colt's ". The Colt made Juniors will of course, not have the made in Spain markings.

    Colt never actually made the Colt Junior. As RJay says, those sold pre-1968 were Astra Cubs made in Spain for Colt. After GCA '68 banned the import of small pistols, Colt had the frames made in the US and finished the guns with Astra parts (1970-1972). IMHO, the Spanish made guns are better than those assembled here.

    Oddly enough, I was going to ask that, but assumed the first info was correct. If you can give the serial number (x out the last two numbers if you want) we can tell you when it was made. Evaluation, if you want it, would require pictures as value depends almost entirely on condition.

    Your Model 1908 Hammerless .25 ( AKA the Vest Pocket ) is listed as being made in 1922. These guns were made from 1908 until approx 1941. Close to 500,000 were manufactured.
