they make excellent paper weights. not a quality piece can and is considered sub-par worth maybe 150 bucks . it more than likely a rg63 made in suntheim germany the 22's have a bit of a following due to the fact they are cheap to shoot and will hold up better than a 38
there is always a market for low end guns. There is more people with a little money, than people with a lot of money. I see used Hi-points go for $150 when you could buy a new one for $165. As for rg's. I would rate as ok to shot but not for very long. I have a 38 like new in box and am confident if I shot a box of shells through it, it would deminish the condition quite a bit.
so very true about low end guns. fleetwood hit it right on the head. years ago when i had part ownership of a gun shop i was out and about and stopped in to shot the breeze with another owner of a gun shop about 3 miles from me. we chatted about business and he asked me if i had alot of "thug" types visiting my my store. to which i replied no not that much. he said he was overwhelmed with those types and asked me if i knew why that was. as i was ready to say no clue i glanced over his gun cases. i saw davis, jennings, a few old h&r top breaks and told him i suspected the low end guns he sold was the drawing card.
