what make is this revolver?
 
I have an old revolver that i bought off a friend for $20. I know it was made in germany and its old but not sure what it is. What i know so far about it it is a 22lr caliber double/single action the only markings on it is the number 344 and says made in germany on the trigger. I would realy like to know what this revolver is please help.

I would not want to shoot it.
Are you sure it is not made as a "starter" pistol and made to shoot blanks?

No ejector rod, the trigger screw retention inset, the large hammer, the lined barrel (looks like it was added after manufacture), the cylinder looks like the same material as the frame (and that looks like "pot metal").

Absence of manufacturer's name has me thinking that the manufacturer was ashamed of it and did not want to be identified if the dern thing blows up.

i was kinda of thinking maybe a starter pistol too. doesn't look safe to shoot to me. sounds like you got ripped out a perfectly good twenty dollar bill! best place for that is the bottom of a lake.

I have fired it b4 and I still have my hand lol it doesn't fire any more a spring is missing. I've herd some ppl say it maybe a RG or a Clerke but all of those have some kinda manufacturer marking on it.

with a spring missing, does that tell you something? give it back to your so-called friend and get your money back, or take it and deep-six it in a very deep lake, before someone gets hurt with it. if it is a starter pistol that some idiot decided to convert to fire regular ammo, it's an accident looking for a place to happen. do yourself a favor, get rid of it!

Dang thats a rough looking revolver. I'd either keep it for a conversation piece. Or take it apart, and dispose of it.
Hey, that would be a good candidate for one of those police buy backs...lol

RG (Rohm) and Clerke have enough back bone that they will put their names on their handguns.

Wow that is really crude looking...it almost looks home made lol
I don't think I would shoot that either! I have never seen anything like it so I couldn't tell ya who makes it.
