OP asked if he overpaid. When these guns can be found for 20-50 bucks, then yes, he did, which is all anyone said about it.

I agree with all the posters, that this is very low quality gun but I also agree with robertusa123 as far as the reliability of some of these. I have a .22 magnum that I've shot a fair amount of brass thru and haven't had any problems.

If it is larger than a .22, I wouldn't fire it with your hand. They are of pot-metal construction and have a reputation of coming apart without warning.

The .32 is especially notorious for this.

If you read carefully you will see that I believe he overpaid.

As I recall when I looked up the gun in the Blue Book many of the Rohms are not given a value at all, regardless of the condition.

That was in reply to Robert. I know you and I are on the same page.

Quite honestly I haven't found any for awhile. i am looking though because I need to stock up for the next gun buyback program in SF. They pay $200 per gun.
