Firearms International .380 Auto, $300 (Grade D)

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Strong on looks and having the best accuracy of the quartet, the F.I. .380 needed a few little things looked into, like its sticking open after every shot unless the safety was held down, and the faulty slide-spring rod. We wouldn't trust our life to it, but this gun could be a whole lot of fun for not a lot of money. From a tactical standpoint, we didnít like the front strap covering the front of the magazine. Also, a rounded hammer spur would be less likely to catch the clothing. The grips were nicely checkered wood, but the metalwork had no identifying marks at all.

The F.I. was just a bit larger than the Colt Pocketlite, but 5 ounces heavier, which made a big difference in the pocket.
