So, which model Raven did you have?
First generation "Original" Raven P-25 -made in Baldwin Park CA- had a big button sliding safety and wide slide serrations.
Second generation Raven P-25 -made in Industry CA- had a smaller sliding safety and retained the wide slide serrations.
Third generation Raven MP-25 had thin, tight slide serrations and continued with the small sliding safety.
Fourth generation Raven MP-25 continued the thin, tight slide serrations but featured a pop-up safety that locked the slide.
Fifth and final generation is the Phoenix Model Raven which retained all the features of the 4th generation and added a magazine safety.
BTW, Phoenix Arms still sells magazines for the Raven and their prices are lower than anyone else.

Honestly, I don't remember. We're talking 30 years ago. I wanna say the top one, because I don't remember the grip being as slanted as all the others. I bought it at a gun show in Tulsa.

Finally got to shoot my hp22 yesterday for the first time. Got a big surprise when I went to make the first shot. The good news was I hit the target, bad news was the barrel launched itself as well! After we finally found the barrel, it took the ROs awhile to figure out how to put it back together. After that, it shot fine, except for having to slap it forward a lot, because it kept sticking, and not closing properly after a shot. I figure just keeping it lubed well, and getting it broken in would fix that. As for the barrel, I suspect that happened because I had taken the barrel off not too long after I had first gotten it, just to see how hard it would be to change barrels on it. I suspect that perhaps I didn't get something closed back properly?

If anyone has thoughts on what happened, and how to prevent these from happening again, I would appreciate it!

It could be the barrel take down lever wasn't fully seated. (That's what Phoenix calls the thingie under the barrel that's a real PITA to move when you want to swap out the barrels.) I've had barrels pop off while racking the slide after cleaning the gun.

Thanks, Adam. Had a feeling it was something like that!

I've polished the rough edges on mine in an attempt to resolve that problem. I think it's worked. But maybe it's worked because I'm more careful and check?? :roll:
