I just inherited this when Mother died in Aug, I picked it up today.
I have seen some pretty bad reviews on it.
I watched a video on how to field strip it, it's really easy, I don't think Mother ever cleaned it.
It looks good to me as a cheap gun.

Here is a review on another one.
Thank You, it was what I had expected, no clue where or when Mother acquired this.
I field stripped it, dug a bunch of crud out of it, gave it some Lucas and it seems really smooth.
Now I can't decide if I want to shoot it or hang it on my wall.

Read that link, and made me think how many names the company had. They would get sued, file bankruptcy, shut it down, then open it up again under another name. Some of the names I recall, Lorcin, Davis, Raven, Phoenix, Jimenez, Sterling etc.
Made out of Zamak castings, they were never designed to last long. Most .25acp is too anemic to cycle the action, resulting in jams.

My only experience is with a Lorcin 380. Bought it new back in the early 90s. Don't think it has ever run a complete mag without jamming. Various attempts to make it better have failed. Similar to rocks, they make excellent paper weights. I won't sell/trade it. Afraid someone might depend on it to defend their lives.
