L.W. Seecamp .25 ACP
It is time to get back to fun with guns. This pistol’s DOB is December 13, 1982 and it now enjoys the simple life tucked away as a collector’s item.
The LWS .25 is a stainless steel, hammer fired, double action only pistol with a trigger pull of roughly 12-lbs. It has a seven round magazine and is drop-safe to carry with a round in the chamber.
Some folks familiar with L.W. Seecamp pistols may never have heard of the LWS .25 ACP. Introduced in 1981 and produced only until around 1985, the LWS .25 filled an unintended niche created by our Congress. Subsequent to the Gun Control Act of 1968, new pocket pistols of good quality were scarce and the available striker-fired pistols of the day had reputations for occasionally firing when dropped onto a hard surface if there was a round in the chamber. The LWS .25 is the father of the famous LWS .32 ACP and the grandfather of the revolutionary LWS .380 ACP. Reflecting the creative talents possessed by both Ludwig and Larry Seecamp, all three LWS pistols have identical size and weight. The Seecamp .25 ACP is a rare little mouse with roughly 500 made for special Seecamp customers and another 4,500 or so made exclusively for Sile Distributors. In the wide wild world of guns, 5,000 pistols of a given name brand do not amount to a whole bunch. Serial numbers for the Sile’s pistols began around 2500. The highest serial number for a LWS .25 is 6944. Quite a few of the LWS .25 pistols had special-order serial numbers.
Unlike the highly polished finish of today’s Seecamp .32 and .380 pistols, the LWS .25 came from the factory with a matt bead-blast finish. The LWS .25 had a recoil-spring guide-rod not used on the LWS .32 or LWS .380. LWS .25s found without guide-rods have been factory altered or repaired.
Magazines for the LWS .25 are no longer made and the limited number of spares on the market command premium prices.
