Adolf Hitler: You never had a failure to feed but your afraid it will blow up in someone's hand?
Radio Free Raven: Interesting video about one of the "Ring of Fire" Saturday Night Specials!
Rich Green: I had no idea how to field strip this thing and had never taken it fully apart before just put oil in it (lol), although I haven't even shot 100 rounds through it over its life. I'm hoping this is the reason it constantly jams, but it didn't seem very dirty or lacked reasonable amount of lubricant (I didn't over do it). Now that I have properly cleaned it, I will try again and see if it improves the results.
Rich Green: I own one of these cheap saturday night specials myself. I also bought it over 20 years ago when I was poor for $50. Like you I would never sell this gun as it has jammed on my on numerous occasions (while shooting little critters and at the range). I don't think I have had much success at getting through a complete magazine with out some form of a failure to feed, or failure to eject the fired round. It is still a fun gun to shoot at snakes. I like your idea on the gun buyback, it is the only way I will get rid of it short of having it destroyed.
Scott h: best freaking video ever loved it..
m white: could you tell me where to find the serial number on a lorcin l25? My grandmother gave me the one she has had for 20 years and I can't seem to find it.
doctruptwn: Very carefully, LOL I realize that doesn't help. Once the screws are out, push out slightly from inside the mag well and get a butter knife or some thing in between the grip and the frame, then attempt to slide them off the back. It is a real pain to get them off in one piece. they go back on a little easier but not much.
DareU2Tread: Ive had mine for about a month now, Luckily, the people I got mine from bought this gun brand new, and said they only shot around 10-15 rounds total through it.So I got pretty lucky, Its pretty much brand new.I have taken it apart for cleaning, and lub.I have a 9mm for my bedside gun.But i can say from what i would call mine reliable.Let me know how yours is shooting after cleaning/lubing it,
Mike Garrett: Anyway, I searched for the disassembly process, which landed me here.
Mike Garrett: The one I bought my mom is jamming after every shot. I am taking it apart and cleaning it and applying much needed lubrication in hopes of putting it back in a reliable condition. I recommend you do the same from time to time. I would hate for my mom to be in a situation where she needs it and it jams on her. Could mean life or death.
Mike Garrett: The reason he said he is afraid of it blowing up....is for OBVIOUS reasons. If you have sent ten thousand rounds through it...or 1000 .... that is a single shot closer to the pistol's end of life. Like the author of this video, I too would hate to sell a pistol to someone and it blew up on them the first time ...or fifth time they ever fired it. These are cheap guns but they serve the purpose. I would rather have this than nothing if I were ever confronted with a situation where I needed it.
Patrick Porter: I bought my Daughter one and was really suprised at how accurate it is, she ran about 40 rounds through it and not one problem. I guess we got lucky !
Bear Partin: I had one of the Lorcins in 380. It was a jam factory. I actually had the slide fly off of it while firing it. I will say though, it shot straight when it did shoot and I could get a solid grouping with it. I think it was just the mass of the thing. I looked at it like a car with bad brakes though. Eventually, something bad is going to happen.
doctruptwn: I dont want to know how you know that, LOL
doctruptwn: The Lorcin's are made out of zinc, not ordanace steel, so I question how they will last over extensive use. Obviously they were made pretty cheap, but they do serve a purpose. I'd rather have it than nothing at all.
DareU2Tread: if you have never had a problem with it, why are you afraid of it blowing up on someone if you did sell it im just wondering i picked up the pink edition earlier last night i shot about 16 times, its got a little punch to it, ill tell ya that lol i was intrigued by the looks of it, its a nice little pocket pistol though
VenetaTownMayor: I had a little Jennings J-22 and when I shot only CCI mini-mag through it, it defintiely shot better with far fewer jams than the Lorcin.
VenetaTownMayor: I had one of those.....long enough to sell it...and like you doc, I bought it when I didn't know any better. But a gun is a gun...grin..I paid $90 for mine and sold it a few months later for $100.
doctruptwn: @sixfteightinguy 1990
Mr45Bullitt: What's great about the .25 is it's centerfire. I have a Raven myself in the safe. I have a Beretta 950 I really like. Great video.
