I've got a .22 cal pistol. Its stamped made in Germany on one side of the barrel and .22 sport on the other. Its got stamps on the cylinder,frame, and barrel that all match, they appear to be a letter N with a bird with its wings open obove it. The stamps are worn. Next to one of the stamps on the cylinder is another marking resembling a ( * ), after the serial number #124145 there is another marking of ?CC (first letter Unknown), and on the right side of the frame it says model EIG.E The pistol is blued with a 2" barrel, 6 shot double action small frame with side loader, under the grips is a mark (>R<), any information would be great

William, I had a German revolver in .22 years ago, it was made by RG. It has been so long I don't remember anything about it, except I didn't trust shooting it!

Somebody here might know, but can you provide pictures of it or of the stamps / markings?

Ed,

Your RG was a Roehm produced .22 that was marketed under a whole lot of different names. The other gun sounds like an EMGE, Moritz & Gerstenberger from Zella Mehlis until 1945, in Gerstetten-Gussenstadt in the 1950's.

It sounds like the model 220KS, a .22 LR revolver.

I've done some more checking. What I thought was a bird over a leter is actually a crown that is worn (who knew). But its not a LR, it takes .22 shorts. Thanks for the info.

The Photo helps,

Looks like it's a Roehm as well. RG7.
Garfield's advice is a little harsh, but this is not exactly a shooter's gun so I understand his view.

True, it may not be a shooter, but I do have the grips for it and its in better shape then the photo I took. I'd rather keep it because its still history (not that old of history). Second its better to keep, then to destroy much like our government does with so many other hand guns and rifles. Thanks for the info good or bad
