    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.

    I have a Rohn 22 revolver (looks like a single action but it is actually double action). Piece of junk. Only thing it is good for is as a dummy for practicing spinning or fast draw (unloaded of course) because it is steel so it has roughly the right weight and balance and you won't give a crap if you drop it.;). I haven't fired it since I got my Single Six. I am waiting for a "gun buyback" program where they will give me some cash for it.

    VikingDad, those are the best ideas I've ever heard for having a Rohm. Touche!

    Actually the kids were using it for practice for awhile, now it is so loose that we have to lock-tite the screws (not that it was a tight gun to begin with). Next step might involve duct tape.
