Default Röhm RG 800

So, I came into possession of a pretty old Röhm RG 800. I got it from a friend in Germany. He claimed it was his father's whilst he was in the German Army. It's been schlagged and the metal's not in very good shape. I am having a lot of difficulty finding any info on his gun online (that's not in Russian, that is). It looks like the current Röhm RG 90 is a very similar model, but I'm not sure. Does anyone have any info on this particular gun? I am trying to do a research paper for a German history seminar. Thanks in advance for any help.

If you swing by the introductions forum, and write a few lines about yourself, AND post a picture of the creature,... that would help

Most folks around here like to know who they talk to.......

Found this though,...

The Röhm RG 800 is a Walther PPk Clone, but fires blanks, is chambered in 8mm K (8 x 20 mm / 8 mm Knall / 8mm. Alarm Pistol / 8 mm Knallpatrone)
Knall it translates as the loud sound made when claping with your hands (like applause), a bang or crack .



BTW, Any army, that I know, issue a blank firing gun to their soldiers.
