The Mother of all Gun Control laws was not the Brady Act, or the Senior Bush's capricious import ban, or even anything lurking in the wings of the Present Congress. It was, of course, the Gun Control Act of 1968. That act axed importation of some of the best firearms made, including the Baby Browning .25, manufactured by FN in Belgium. As inventories depleted, ours included, of the little Brownings, demand increased to the point that a company formulated in Fraser, Michigan, under the name of Bauer Firearms Corporation and began production in 1972 of a stainless clone of the Baby Browning, the Bauer 25 SSP, SS for Stainless Steel, and P for imitation pearl grips. Construction is entirely stainless steel. Type was striker fired blowback semi-automatic, John M. Browning design, with left side lever safety that also acts as a disassembly position stop. Sight system, like the original Browning, was raised serrated rib with notch rear and low blade ramp type front. Barrel is 2 inches. Weight empty is only 9 3/4 ounces, quite a feat for a steel frame pistol. This specimen has two Bauer factory magazines, 6 + 1 capacity. It comes to us from an Illinois Estate Collection. From its 014000 range serial number, it is part of the first Year’s Production, 1972. Our first Bauers in 1973, bought in February and manufactured in January, were 017000 range. This Bauer’s principal surface flaw is where its owner scribed a 7 digit Germantown TN number on the right side of the frame and slide. Second, the left grip panel has a hairline crack running from the screw to the black panel back lining, but with no separation. On the steel surfaces, scour lines are small and few. Note that one of the magazines has some grinding marks on it from what looks like an attempt to fit it into a different pistol. The extra mag is a freebie anyway, and it works just fine. We rate this 25SSP as Very Good, 80 percent vicinity by our estimate. Photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is excellent mechanically. Bore, chamber and mechanism are bright, clean, and excellent. We're offering this classic Bauer .25 for only $ 339.00.
