    I would like to know about this pistol. What ammo can I use? How much is it worth? The only info on pistol is serial #4286XX, and XXII on right side by trigger. It is made in Italy. Galesi - Brescia Cal. 635 001.jpg

    Well, well, shades of times long past...

    I bought one nib just like it in Dublin, Ga. in the summer of 1966, for $35.00.

    Mine never met a full magazine it liked, and here we are 44 years later, I still own it, and it STILL won't shoot a full magazine without a burp of some kind.

    But, perhaps I just got the bad one.. ;)

    I think any quality brand of 25acp ammo will work just fine in the old Galesi, I would suggest fmj's, easily found at Wally World or your local gun shop.

    Good luck to ya..

    Best Wishes,

    Jesse

    The store I worked for sold a ton of those in the early 1960's. Most worked, but unfortunately, Jesse's experience was not uncommon. Anyone planning to use a Galesi for serious purposes should see if it will fire 200 rounds without a failure before counting on it.

    I love the ''pistol toters'' license. Shades of the past are cool to see again.

    I've been collecting these little autos for many years including the Berettas, Bernadellis, etc., and I think you will find a gold plated example in nice shape worth at least $225. Some of the factory engraved models have reached and even exceeded $500 in recent years. For anyone interested, I can supply a factory original box for the Galesi. My e-mail:

    Reasonably priced?, therein lies the problem, what is reasonably to you , that is the unknown factor.?? I hit google and there's a number of them listed? I would think if they have it and you want it , then that is a reasonable price. The gun has been out of production for 50 years.:)
