Diego Jose Texera: I have a Bauer .25 and it's jammed. I don't know what to do to get it open
so I can inspect, clean and repair. Found it in a drawer after my uncle
passed and apparently hadn't been fired in ages....who knows how long.
Anyone have an idea how to dismantle this thing the "other" way if possible
42themeaningoflife: Bakelite is better than wood. Just ask SL/HPF.
PAINTANK: It was made in Fraser, Michigan. This pistol is a great deal smaller than
the Beretta. It is very loud and rarely jams when it's clean.
RangerMH: That is the same thing as my .25 "Baby" browning, WOW I thought I was the
only one that had one of these things. What's the difference between a
Bauer? Mine is pewter black w/ black plastic grips. Nice!
brentwalden: thanks for the vid man.....I just picked up one of these the other day. I
absolutely love this gun!!
tahoeridah: How much would it be to fix mine? Something with the magazine latch
mechanism went wrong and the latch is loose. And where can I buy magazines?
Terrforms: Great Vid! Thanks for posting. Very ininformative! I don't think i could
have figured this field strip out myself.
entimid8er: Is there a website to get the schematics for the Bauer 25 cal.?
Gingajulie: Just bought one of these. Great video- thanks a million!!!! Came apart
exactly the way you demonstrated.
Dan Testa: @DemonofUnx3 I know what you're talking about, try pulling the slide back,
keeping tension on it then turn the barrel. i think some have a little stop
near the ejection opening to keep barrel from turning unless you hold the
slide all the way back.
AstonandJoy: Thanks for posting this video. I just picked up the EXACT same Bauer as
yours. Including the "ivory" grips! lol You really cant go wrong with
owning one of these beautiful guns. AM
dphitch: Yeah, after he pulled the fully loaded mag and didn't clear the gun, I
thought my god hes going to blow the tip of his finger off, then he pointed
at his head, brilliant.
cbappa1: This reminds me of a gun a prostitute would use
onebadwestie: I have one and love it however my barrel does not come out of the slide.
Were some of these made to not come out? The grooves seem to big to slide
out of the front. Please help!
PAINTANK: Bauer 25s are stainless steel copies of the Baby Browning 25. Mine is a
decent little pistol and extremely tiny.
PAINTANK: She's tiny but strong! best 25 I've had so far. Even better than the
Gazdatronik: Bless you sir, had this gun for years, never knew how the damn thing came
apart. Maybe now after cleansing, it'll fire more than once before jamming.
Marissa Bludsworth: Could anyone tell me the length of the striker tip?? My dad has the exact
gun but the tip of the striker is broke.
Vancouver Breakdancers: how many bullets does each clip hold?
Jim D: Got my Bauer .25 auto as a graduation present when I graduated the Houston
Police Academy in March 1977. When I went back to law enforcement in CA, I
couldn't carry it as it is "single action" only. Sat in my safe for 30
years! Now that I'm retired, I plan on carrying it again as a pocket gun.
Thanks for putting this video on disassembly together. I got it apart and
cleaned. I plan on shooting it for first time in 30 years in the next
couple of days!
joseph genova: I too was just handed down this gun, never been shot before!! When I
disengage the safety, my slide launches.. Im talking about a foot high lol.
Have you considered doing a video about the history, or general info about
the bauer .25? I cant seem to find much about it.
AlexPate5: I have had one of those for about 7 years, my aunt gave in to me but there
was no clip, anyone know where I can get one and how much it'll cost? Thanks
blorph1: Thank you for uploading this video. I've had my Bauer .25 on my NY State
permit for over 25 years. I usually conceal carry an H and K 40 but can't
conceal it in the summer. Two summers ago was with my wife when two
apparent miscreants approached. I rested my right hand in a non threatening
way on my back pocket where the Bauer resided.. Immediately the lead
miscreant apologized for interrupting us and they scooted. So did we.
PAINTANK: Not a whole lot I guess. More than 22s but not as much as .500S&Ws.
jray214: MANY THANKS!!! I was just handed down this gun from my grandparents and I
also didn't know how to remove the slide. Can't wait to shoot it, seems
DemonofUnx3: Mine is exactly like the one in the video but when I lock it back I cannot
turn it where you can see the groves. It is not froze because it is loose
but it just won't turn, what am I doing wrong? This gun shoots fine and
makes a hell of a noise but I have heard that because of having a small
amount of powder in the shell it has very little penetrating power, is this
true and if so can you buy a better shell?
rene sanchez: i got 1 for sale !!
Dennis Holtz: wow thats awesome thank you
bvacs12: Good video, very needed. Thanks
Mike B: That little .25 was also manufactured with label R B Industries, Ltd.
Fraser, MI on the left side of the slide and "Fraser" in cursive on the
right. The stainless steel is a nice feature as it will not rust and is
easy to clean. I suppose by todays standards it would be called a "mouse"
gun, but he who underestimates the humble .25 is liable to get hurt. It's
not a power house but any firearm has the potential to discourage the
average criminal. It does make a loud noise.
XXX: Is Bauer an American made gun? I remember this gun in 1974 and it cost
about $100. Beautiful gun. I would still prefer to have the Baretta Model
20 .25 that is double action and better made.
Terrforms: Thank You! great video. I would not have been able to figure this one out
without your video.
Jim D: Got my Bauer 33 years ago. Shot it a couple of times then put it in the
safe. Now that I have had my memory refreshed on disassembly, I'm going to
shoot it and start carrying it again. Thanks for putting this video
beckyglass116: Mine does not come out of the slide either, did you ever find out the
answer to this?
xxBleedxxLikexxMexx: try looking on gunbroker or ebay... i have seen mags for them there. Or try
contacting mec gar. They usually make mags for a number of different guns.
you might also try looking at local gun shows.
sparkles13: Where do you put in the rubber band?
42themeaningoflife: Paintank, remember what Patton said about pearl-handled pistols.
juliusbari: Excellent vid came in very handy
larryowens713: My 25 Bauer will not rotate to show the groves on the barrel to remove it.
It will rotate the other way but that doesn't allow the barrel to be
removed. Any suggestions ?
Philip C. Gossett III: Learn how to safely handle a firearm, you are reckless.
tygesh: @diegotexera You can spray some oil all over it (the kind used to loosen
screws etc.) and then pack it in a plastic bag for some hours or days. Then
it should get loose enough to disassemble. Else you can put it in a
porridge made of brown soap and water (or washing powder for clothes if you
don´t have brown soap). Only add enough water to dissolve the soap into a
thin porridge-like substance. Soak the gun for 24 hours and it should do
the job. Else soak it in terpentine one week. Either works.
PAINTANK: LMAO I know right! But the other option was a set of bakelite Browning
grips because the wooden originals were cracked. These fit nicely and
whatever...I have no excuse. You're right. Dammit.
PAINTANK: My 1911 came with plastic and was promptly replaced with wood. The Browning
ones were very retro with molded in ribs and the Browning monogram in an
oval. I didn't want Browning stuff on my Bauer.
eric lopez: i got 1 and i think its like 6 bullets in the clip and 1 in the chamber
Adam Stevens: I cannot remove the barrel from the slide for the life of me. It's as if
the raised part of the barrel (where the grooves are) is too big. Anyone
else have or know about this problem?
entimid8er: Is there a site to geet the schematics for the Baur 25?
