Default help with info about old .22 revolver

Hello I am hoping someone can help me figure out more info on my revolver.
I know its german made and has "fabico mod 4" on it
Its. 22 caliber 8 shot double action revolver.

There is absolutely nothing on the internet about it that I can find. Closest thing I found was a short story about a mod 3.. but not mod 4.

Is the barrel removable? There is a little give like it is screwed in..

Does anyone know how old it is?

There are a few little symbols on it but I can't tell what they are except one is. Like a sheipd with "62" in it. Any info or suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance

Also hope I'm posting in the correct place as this is my first post.

I checked it out and found that Fabico was an importer located in Jacksonville Fla. That revolver is German made and is similar in quality to the RG. It's worth approx. $100 in exc. condition. In the shape this one is in you'd have to pay someone to take it. Stick it with the loose barrel into a crusher so no one will get hurt trying to shoot it. Sorry I had to tell you it's a POS.

Thanks for the info. Thats a bummer :-( I havent fired it in a while thankfully never got hurt. The barrel on turns about 1 to 2 mm like a screw not up down left or right so I felt like the bullet hole was still aligned. But... Better safe than horribly maimed I suppose.

Before you do something extreme, take it to a gunsmith for a once over. It may be perfectly safe to shoot. Get the facts before you trash it. good luck

I agree. For one thing, it looks like it has a very nice handle.

Don't laugh, good ones can be very hard to find, at any price.

They don't call them suicide guns or Saturday night specials for nothing. A gunsmith will charge you, unless he's a friend, or family member more than what it's worth to check it, let alone repair it. That movement in the barrel can cause too wide a gap between the barrel and cylinder. Don't let anyone you like stand beside you while firing, cause there's a good chance it'll be spitting some lead out from the side and you should also wear eye protection as well. It's your revolver, so do whatever you feel you must.
