About the Manufacturer:
Taking their name from the history of Raven Arms, which went out of business after a fire, Phoenix Arms is considered to have risen from the ashes of Raven. Phoenix Arms went as far as to purchase Raven’s pistol designs. Despite the popularity of the Phoenix Arms handguns, there are still a lot of shooters who believe that a firearm is only as good as its price tag. Phoenix only makes two types of pistols; both are semi-automatic and they vary in barrel lengths and calibers. These two firearms are chambered in .22 LR, and .25 auto calibers. Since the trend of concealed carry has hit the majority of American states, the Phoenix Arms .25 auto, or better known as the HP25 has become a must-have for the frugal concealed carry enthusiast.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced in the United States along with the Browning-designed, Colt manufactured 'Vest Pocket' pistol. Also referred to as the 6.35mm Browning, this semi-rimmed centerfire cartridge has fairly high velocity for such a small size. However, the energy it delivers at any range is quite low. This, combined with the full metal jacketed bullet, adds up to a very poor stopping or killing power on anything. The .25 ACP is not powerful enough for hunting anything but pests, nor is it adequate for serious self defense. However, the .25 auto caliber pistols are popular because of their small size and low cost.
