Mouse Guns

We all have'em in the safe. These pocket guns are smaller calibers and have little to no recoil. These are three that I have ... Walther TPH in 22lr, Beretta 950 Jetfire in 25 acp and a Beretta 3032 Tomcat.

I loved my Jetfire but in .25, be warned they are not supported by Beretta and the spring that broke is unobtanium........

Perhaps a spring from a similar .25ACP pistol would be sufficient. You could try asking Wolff Gunsprings or on BerettaForum for a recommendation.

We're not talking the trigger guard/tipping barrel spring?

Here are two of mine.

The Beretta is a 1960 Model 950B Minx in .22 Short. SAO, the lower "screw" in the left grip panel is actually the magazine release. Around 1977 this was replaced with a more conventional thumb safety. The lever behind the trigger guard is the barrel release. When pushed forward it tips the barrel up powered by the trigger guard which is also a leaf spring. The heraldic symbol on the lower right grip panel is the logo of the US importer, J.L.Galef and Son of New York.

The Colt is a 1921 Vest Pocket Hammerless in .25 ACP. Striker fired with both thumb and grip safety the early ones had hard black rubber grips. After about 1924 these were replaced with checkered walnut with Colt medallions. The magazine is discolored because the feed lips were hardened after blueing which tended to remove the finish. After 1938 this process was changed and the magazines were fully blue. I bought this one mainly because Peter Lorre carried one in "The Maltese Falcon".

Both of them have VERY tiny sights.

In Switzerland, the police used such little Ortgies pistols in .25ACP to fight against bad boys about 90 years ago. The Ortgies pistols then were quite advanced as no screws were used. But the Ortgies company didn't last long. After five or six years of its existence it was taken over in 1925 by the Deutsche Werke which continued to produce the guns in their Erfurt plant. Mine is a very late gun but I don't know the year of manufacture.

The ERMA company was known for producing cheap scaled-down guns in .22lr, .25ACP, and even .32ACP during the '60s to the '80s in the style of then still popular guns like the Walther PPK, the Walther P38, the Luger 08, and some revolvers by Smith & Wesson. This EP 752 was manufactured in .22lr only and isn't exactly a mouse gun though, for its size is more or less similar to the size of its inspiring example.

The official name of the ERMA company was "Erfurter Maschinen- und Werkzeugfabrik Berthold Geipel GmbH" when it was founded in Erfurt (about 30 miles from Zella-Mehlis) in 1922. After WWII the company was re-established in West Germany and produced guns in various qualities like the cheap mentioned guns in .22lr but also more valuable revovers in .357 Magnum for example.
