    I just bought this little .22 revolver I believe from my buddy. It says NOTHING on it no manufacturer no nothing. All it says is made in Germany. I want to here everything you guys know about it.

    That looks like a typical german made teargas/blank gun. I would stongly recommend you take it to a competent gun smith and have him give it a first hand look. I would be willing to bet it is not safe to shoot with "real" ammo.

    looks like a rohm not sure what model maybe rg08 or rg10. From what i have read they are pretty much crap, made with cheap pot metal. hope that helps.

    Looks bigger than a .22 to me as well. Still, I would not ever try and shoot it. Looks like some starter pistols I've seen as well. How much did you give for it?

    At first glance I was going to say Rohm, but some things did not look "right".
    Take it to a smith to verify that it is safe to handle any ammo.

    It looks a little like a starter pistol my high school PE coach had in his office. Yeah, I'm that old. But that one only had about a 1" barrel and was painted black pot metal I guess, because it was about 50% peeled off.

    Looking at the back of the barrel in this picture it does not look like the barrel goes all the back to the cylinder. I would think it is a blank gun. Something used at track meets and the like.

    Starter pistol?????

    You might try to pawn this off as the Original starters pistol from the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany. A black American by the Name of Jessie Owens comes to mind.:)

    Wild assed guess here- I think you MAY have an EM-GE "Valor" revolver. They were made as blank pistols for 8mm blanks, some were "modified" to fire .32 S&W. No rifling in bore. PLEASE have a smith check it over before shooting anything but cap pistol caps in it. Do not want to hurt anyone's feelings, and I am really not a gun snob, but value on revolvers like that are about $25.

    Already expressed it seems to be a starter pistol (no rifling in the barrel is the best clue). I wouldn't bother taking it to a gunsmith, as it clear this pistol shouldn't use live ammo. It's in rough condition even for blanks. $25 is a generous value number but if you know anyone who trains hunting dogs they might buy it from you.

    i agree. the bore does look a little large for a .22. i would go with a starter gun. good luck with it.
