Question on a Rohm RG40
My neighbor brought over this revolver that belonged to his father and wanted to show it to me and wanted to clean it. Well it turns out to be a Rohm RG40, six shot, two inch barreled, .38 spl. revolver. I had heard all the negative remarks over the years about them but this is the first one I actually laid hands on. It looks to be in almost new condition as wasn't really dirty and I would guess if it hasn't been cleaned before it hasn't had but a hand full of rounds shot through it. It seems to work fine from what I can judge but I have a question to ask. The ejector rod turns freely in both directions. There are two flats on the end of the ejector rod that gives the impression you would put a tool on them to undo the rod but there is no resistance in either direction, is that normal. I am not going to attempt to remove the rod as there doesn't seem to be a function problem with the revolver and that wasn't part of his request. It was his dad's gun and now it is his and am not going to make snide remarks about it. I was just curious how is the rod unscrewed if some one was wanting to disassemble the ejector rod from the cylinder.
