need some help with a .25

i need some help figuring out if parts from other 25's may fit. this gun is very treasured to me because it was my grandfathers everyday carry gun. he passed away recently and had taken the thing apart and the parts are nowhere to be found.







thanks for any help!

I have good news, and bad news. The bad news is that you'll never find parts for this "Eibar"-type pistol. the Basques made them by the freight car load in small shops and factories all over the Basque region or northern Spain. I honestly don't think that it's possible to even list all the myriad of markings and variations. Most were made in small quantities, fitted by hand, and marked with startling ingenuity. Too bad the grips are missing; they might have told who made it. That's of no practical use, though it would satisfy one's intellectual curiosity.

But, there's good news. Because these things were largely hand fit, and so many were made, if you prowl enough gun shows—the bigger, the better—scouring the tables with your frame and slide in hand, you just might find one close enough, with rear mounted safety and double-notched slide (the second notch is for takedown) that you can adapt its parts. Actually, it might take more than one to really get the job done.

If it proves impossible to adapt parts from other Eibars you find, you'll at least have a pattern from which you can make the missing parts to fit your pistol.

If you don't take the job too seriously, you can have some fun and enjoyment in the chase, and if you are eventually successful, the satisfaction of achieving the seemingly impossible!

Regards,

Walt

thanks for the advice. i forgot to mention this is a walman american automatic pistol. i have the clip(from a colt pocket i fitted), grips, barrel, trigger and hammer assembly which all work great. i need the ejector parts, recoil spring parts and the take down lever. i was hoping someone might have a idea of what other models are of the same design that parts could be adapted to fit.

Check out this page, Atlante storico delle armi , with particular attention to 37-106.

Cruise the pics & you might find what you're looking for, although finding one specific Eibar type is no easier than finding one just like the one you have!!!

Best regards,

Walt

Got a Walman .25 acp overseas willing to ship to the USA

Don't exactly all the rules, but saw that you
have your Walman incomplete and I am
willing to construct the parts for myself
and ship you my originals to you.
God bless you,
