Hey guys, Sorry for the wall of text below, but here it goes. I offered my services to a person that works at an office next door to mine as she knew I was affiliated with a friend of mines gun shop. She mentioned two pistols that she has that needed to be cleaned of which I said I would help her out with. Today she brought over both said handguns, one is a lovely Taurus .38 SPL chrome with dark wood grips, it is not in all to bad of shape just needs a good once over and it should be good to go, and the other is my reason for posting today. It is a .25 ACP American Firearms Manufacturing Co., INC. pocket pistol, needless to say this thing has had better days, it has a good amount of surface rust, and looks like the internals could use a good scrub down as well. My problem however is trying to field strip the thing as I see no possible way at all to take apart this pistol, there are no obvious pins or anything to remove that would allow me to get the slide to come off. Only thing I have been able to do is taking the wood hand grips off, and remove a small metal sliver that is on the right hand of the frame just in front of the safety. Below are links for pictures of the handgun in question, I did not directly post them since they are high resolution images and did not want to break the forum tables: Left Hand Side Left Hand Side (Close Up) Right Hand Side Right Hand Side (Close Up) Rear of Slide Front of Slide Notice the front of slide has a small hole in what appears to be its guide rod, I have tried slowly turning this in hopes that it would "unscrew" something in the internals and allow the slide to come free, but alas has done nothing. The silver metal sliver piece on the right hand side I have removed, then tried to tap on the safety but it will not budge, and I do not want to put any more pressure there not knowing first if that is what actually needs to be done. The only thing I have been able to track down about this piece is the following from Cheaper Than Dirt on a Google search: AMERICAN FIREARMS MANUFACTURING CO., INC. Previous manufacturer located in San Antonio, TX between 1972 and 1974. Manufacturer Specific Product Categories DERRINGERS AMERICAN .38 SPL. - .38 Spl. cal., O/U configuration, approx. 3,000-4,000 mfg. 1972-74. AMERICAN .380 AUTOMATIC - .380 ACP cal., 8 shot, 3 1/2 in. barrel, stainless steel, smooth walnut grips, approx. 10 mfg. 1972-74. SEMI-AUTO AMERICAN .25 AUTOMATIC - .25 ACP cal., 8 shot, 2 1/10 in. barrel, smooth walnut grips. Mfg. 1966-74. So with all that being said, does anyone have ideas at all on where I should go to try and find some manual for this and or any ideas on how to break this old guy down? Or any other forums to post this in, in hopes someone else can help. Let me know!
