Have a model 20 .22LR made in Bohemia NY I was hoping anyone knew anything about this pistel serial number 2291.

Google is your best bet- VERY doubtfull you'll find any serial # info-
Basicly its a inexpensive, mostly potmetal revolver from the 70's or around there.
$50 would be a high price to give IMO-
Reminds me of a RG-
Not trying to injure ego- Just being honest----

Yea I have tried to information on the Pistel but had no luck on it

I would definately have a gunsmith check before firing it.

It has been check and has only a few round through it but with only a half or one inch barrel it's a little harsh on the ears

Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away.....

Congress passed the 1968 Gun Control Act. Among other things, it prohibited the import of REALLY cheap guns- ones that were cheap because they were made of a zinc alloy (aka Pot Metal) instead of steel. Guns like the RG.

Some small American companies decided to jump on the newly emptied band wagon, and make their own cheap, zinc alloy guns. Since they were made in the US, the import ban did not affect them- just cleared out the competition.

Yours is such an example. The frame is alloy, the 2 inch bbl and cylinder are steel. Durability is poor. The maker was (AFAIK) a job lot machine shop type company. Need a 3/4 widget with a 4mm hole bored at the center? Sure- how many you need?

Issue you will face is timing- if the cylinder is not properly aligned with the barrel, bullet will begin "shaving" lead off the side of a fired bullet- and eventually, will not fire, since firing pin is no longer whacking the rim.

Company is long gone, gun not listed in Standard catalog of Firearms. Value very low- $20-$25 range.
