Re: 8 shot .22 cal pistol Help!!!
I believe every thing but the frame of your firearm was made by Herman Weihrauch ( Arminius ),Germany, Is is a Arminus H.W. 3. After the 1968 Firearms control Act cut out the import of these small inexpensive firearms the importers got around the law by having the frames cast in the US and then assembling. the firearm in the US. These firearms were not made for substained firing. It was designed to be test fired and then placed in a night stand for the next 30 years, or perhaps wraped in a oily rag and kept in a fishing tackel box. It is not a high value item and perhaps would bring 75 dollars if in excellent conditon. Having the firearm assembled in the U.S with very cheap labor did nothing to enhance the quality of these firearms.
