It might be rarer than you know depending if it is prior to when it was assigned a model number. I don't recall the model number assigned, I'm thinking model 25. If I recall they went to a four screw version when it was assigned a model number. The pre model number are five screws. Either way a nice shooting pistol. I have one that is pre model number and it always makes the trip to the range.

I had a 22 Luger!
Take careful notice of the bobbed and trimmed RG22. I dare anyone here to find a less accurate handgun that has rifling in the barrel. It would literally not fire in the same spot twice at 5 feet. I only used ratshot with it.

Not at all but this one was smothed out by a great gunsmith before I got it. Feeds anything I put through it but I don't know what it was like when new.

Here is Linda and my submission:

Steyr GB, one of the ugliest pistols made but one hell of a tack driver.

The development of the GB pistol was started by Steyr-Daimler-Puch AG (now Steyr-Mannliher AG), Austria, in the early 1970s, when the Austrian army announced its plans to replace aging P38s and High Powers with the new pistol. Original design, labeled as PI-18, was developed in 1974, and final version, called GB, entered production in 1981. The production of the GB was ceased circa 1988, after some 15.000 to 20.000 pistols had been produced.

The GB is a blowback-operated, gas-retarded blowback semi auto pistol. It uses some of the hot powder gases; feed from the barrel into the front part of the slide, to slow down the retraction of the slide before the bullet leave the barrel. This scheme was developed by German engineer Barnitzke at the end of the WW2. The gas brake is formed by the barrel, its bushing and the slide.
The trigger of the GB is of double action design, with the slide mounted decocker lever. GB also featured firing pin block that unlocks the firing pin only when the trigger is completely depressed.

The frame and the slide is made from carbon steel with special high-strength finish. Barrel has polygonal rifling and is chrome lined, and solidly attached to the frame.

The sights are fixed and featured white-dot inserts (one in the front sight blade and two - around the rear sights notch).

Some early GBs were manufactured with steel grip panels, with all the rest manufactured with plastic checkered grips.

Type: Double Action
Chamber: 9x19mm Luger/Parabellum
Weight: 845 g empty; 1285 g loaded
Length: 216 mm
Barrel length: 136 mm
Capacity: 18 rounds + 1 in the tube

Here are a couple of oddballs I have picked up over the years. The first is a AMT AutoMag long slide, 10 shot 22mag. The second is a Llama MiniMax 12 shot 45ACP

This particular weapon went through the John Jovino shop in NY getting the barrel cut from 6" to what you see here is nowhere near that. There was not a whole lot of these made from what I've been able to gather. Much like the Lew Horton's that look a little like this Jovino took some of these and cut the barrel, added a match trigger and hammer, and called them The Effector. I am not exactly sure how many of these were made by Jovino. I've heard from 500 to 1500. I have looked almost weekly for over a year looking for another one like this. I did see one on the gunsamerica auction and the bid closed at 1850.00. I have no desire to sell this one I just get curious. I actually got this pretty cheap in a trade a few years ago. It's amazing what you can find at a stock yard on trading day. Those old farmers get together and buy/sell/trade knives, guns, cattle(LOL), a little of everything. I happened to be there looking for case knives for my budding collection. And I happened on this. At first I thought it might be a Lew Horton but those are square but wheel guns where Jovino made them a round butt and put a set of Pachmayr grips on them.

Well.I've droned on long enough for what little I really know about the Jovino revolvers. So here ya go...


By the way, any of you with any info on these handguns feel free top add anything you know about them. I'd love to hear more about them really. It's a really fun weapon to shoot but it is pretty unusual and info is not all that easy to find.
Beauty, DrumJunkie.
