    I have a Hawes Firearms Co. L.A. Calif. Made in Germany Col. .25 Auto. Can anyone please tell me what this might me worth?

    Hawes SA revolvers were made by J.P. Sauer and are of good quality. I don't recall a .25 pistol marketed by Hawes, but in the general pre-'68 market, many were imported by a number of companies. There is near zero collector interest and few are worth more than shooter value. At best, and if the gun is in good condition and fully functional, I think $175-200 would be about tops.

    Hawes marketed a small .25 Galesi called the Courier. Also sold under Rigarmi.

    Thanks for the info, RJay. I sold many of those guns under the Galesi and Rigarmi names; I just didn't know Hawes put their name on them. They sold for around $30 in the 1960's, and were good value for the money.

    Thank you all for your input. I bought it at an auction for $20.00. It is in good shape. It also came with one clip for it.
