Rohm RG14 .22
 
Got a friend who is wondering about how much this gun is worth used or new and any problems with it?

I've only seen two Rohm guns. A starter pistol (cap gun) and a .22 revolver. They are not worth much and it is damn near impossible to get parts. I don't believe they are in business anymore. Could be wrong though.

Well--if it's functional it's maybe a $50 gun or a bit more. It was a cheap
little revolver when it was new, and age has done nothing to increase
either the quality or value. Parts availability is near zero, and collector
interest is zero. In the world of firearms the Rohm 22's are better than
no gun at all---just barely.:)

RG was Rheinmetal Gemeinschaft. Made in West Germany, early 60s. Many of their guns had frames of aluminum/zinc alloy (pot metal) with steel cylinders and a steel LINER in a pot metal barrel. When new they were low dollar guns of indifferent quality. When the 1968 Gun Control Act came along, it banned import of many of these- they would not meet the criteria for import. NOT a highly reliable gun. Company is gone, parts mostly not available.

They make great paperweights.

Most inaccurate handgun I've ever shot.

I have an RG-66 in .22.
Not much to look at, but fun to shoot. (What .22 isn't?)

I would never shoot one with live ammo.

It's worth $0.00

And if I sold one to someone, I would worry about him sueing me when it blew up in his hand.
