Great Little Guns
By JKnicker on 15 Apr 2022
I own several Ravens. I have one from each generation. They are easy to fire, very accurate for self-defense distances (5 to 21 feet) and break down easily for cleaning. They are not meant to use hollow point cartridges due to the weaknesses inherent in 25acp. I have shot several brands of FMJ through these and haven't had any problems. But then again, I clean all my guns regularly. Trigger pull is reasonable. Recoil is next to 22lr. I know Zamak is not meant to last forever. I only wish they made all steel models. Stainless would be fantastic.

First gun i ever bought, still have it somewhere, never had a jam or fail with any ammo. It's not accurate very far or powerful but it's tiny and always worked. No its not great but it's great for what it is, cheap small better than nothing. =]
Cheap but gets the job done.

At one time this was the only gun I had available AT THAT TIME. It's the closest I ever came to actually shooting someone. Thankfully it didn't get that far. As other people have pointed out, it's junk, not accurate, but it still gets the job done. I'd rather have this little piece of junk when I need a gun, than NO gun.
Mine has worked flawlessly with not one jam.

The one I have looks like the Raven, but is manufactured by American Firearms in Texas. Only really good for making noise...but I like it.
I have one

I haven't looked at this site in a long time and it's weird to see a strange little gun I have as the most viewed thing this month. It has worked fine each time I've shot it, btw.
The Wonder of Zamak

This little BUG has never had a failure in the hundreds of different brand of rounds I've put through it in the last five years.
Shooting with my 14 year old Grandson last week, we both nailed two mags into 3" Shoot n See targets at 16 feet.
They key word with this Defensive Handgun is... Headshot.

It is my experience and opinion these brand pistols are junk. I've had a few and none have been reliable and very inaccurate. These two reasons alone at why I would NEVER trust my life or my family's life with these junkers. They may be ok for plinking at the range but that's all. Highly recommend NOT buying one for self defense. To top it off, the pistol hates defensive rounds like hill points...

Small, light, not accurate beyond 30ft,good for truck gun, short term defense, shoots every time, easy clean, worth at least$100 if in good condition
