    I have never heard of a commercial rifle chamered for .25 ACP.

    I have heard of people converting old single-shot .25 Stevens rimfires to it so they could get ammo. Set the barrel back, a .25 ACP chamber reamer & converting the breech-block to centerfire.

    Always seemed like relining to .22RF would have been a lot better option to me.

    I have often throught that a nice Stevens 15A in 25 ACP would be a perfect " Rook" gun , it wouldn't do anything better than a 22 Short could do, it would just be nice to have and to shoot.:)

    That's what I was going to do with a Hopkins-allen falling block in .25 RF, except I was going to rechamber to .25-20, then swage or cast bullets to the correct diameter. But the guy wouldn't budge from $200, when book on the rifle was $110 (optimistically), and it needed action work (trigger spring busted or something). So he got to keep it. Far as I know, it's still for sale.

    I don't know about a commercial gun, but the small caliber freaks have made plenty of 25 ACP wildcat rounds for bolt guns.

    They neck it to 17cal, 14cal, 12cal, and 10cal.

    they have conversion sleeves to convert .308, 30-06, .303, and 7.62x54r into .32 ACP. kind of surprising of how well of a group .32 will make at 100 yards. one hole!

    Do you think the bullet would make it to the end of the barrel?

    Yes. There's not a lot of powder in a 25ACP, but there's enough.

    I would bet dollars to doughnuts that a T/C Contender carbine barrel in .25acp has been rolled out at some point or another... :D

    Isn't .25 cal ammo too expensive like .32 cal rnds. Pistols for most part that shoot these caliber rounds are Saturday Night specials, Correct? Police may carry a .32 as throw down pistol. All I know, is you don't see much of a demand for these rounds.

    I seem to remember that in the 80's Squires Bingham, the Phillipino arms company, made a SMG-style rifle in .32acp. I remember seeing it in a catalogue.

    JTEX I don't think that's accurate, there are plenty of high-quality pistols chambered in .25 and .32 ACP, and I don't think police in any civilized country carry 'throw-down' pistols.

    I don't know anything about that one, but the Škorpion is in .32 and has a long history. .32 is underpowered but not a bad round. There aren't many decent firearms in .25 though.

    Well if you're going to insist on the part about being "civilized" then I guess we can exclude several large cities in this country. :D

    You mean like the Browning? :rolleyes:

    Or the Taurus PT-25?

    is there a caliber that TC doesnt make a barrel for?
