Been looking for one for years now. Don't like buying guns online though and i couldn't find the American made one anywhere.

Finally on a random browsing of a stores website came across this.



Facebook messaged them before i went to bed last night and when I got up the reply was there confirming it was what i wanted so ran up today and bough it.


Any ideas where to look for a spare mag? Triple K makes them but I've heard bad things about their reliability

Very nice! I have a Cub that is fun to shoot, so I imagine that Jr. will be as well.

Page no. 2 of the this manual tells you how to check if Colt has modified the firing mechanism to correct a potential safety issue: http://stevespages.com/pdf/colt_junior.pdf

Colt may still be doing recall service on the Jr.
As posted on another site:
"COLT
MODEL JUNIOR COLT,
25 AUTO CALIBER, PISTOL

RECALL: It has come to our attention that some of the small pocket automatic pistols marketed by Colt in 25 ACP between 1957 and 1973 (these have serial numbers ending in CC or beginning with OD) are susceptible to accidental discharge if improperly carried with a round in the chamber and dropped or otherwise carelessly handled. This is because of the type of firing mechanism in these pistols. Some of these pistols were marked "Junior Colt/Cal. 25," others "Made in Spain for Colt," and still others " Colt Automatic/Cal. 25."

COLT WILL MODIFY THE FIRING MECHANISM OF THESE PISTOLS FREE OF CHARGE. This modification will substantially reduce the possibility of accidental discharge.

If you own one of these pistols, please notify Colt in writing (see below) but do not return the pistol at this time. You will be given further details and instructions as to when and how to ship your firearm to Colt. We will replace the firing pin and the firing pin spring, and return the gun as promptly as possible.

Please do not delay in writing to us. Meanwhile, carry your pistol only with an empty chamber. Please send a postcard or note giving your name, address and the serial number of your pistol to:

Colt Industries, Inc.
Firearms Division
P.O. Box 1868
Department RC 25
Hartford, CT 06101 "
