    Does anyone have an idea of the value of a 22 Cal, 2 or 2 1/2 inch barrel, RG revolver thats in good condition?

    An RG has never been in good condition unless it's used as a paper weight:D

    $50 would be way over it's actual value

    WOW, I made a great investment in 1984 when I picked it up for $35.00. Thats a neat profit of $15.00 in 22 years-tax free too. Back in the tackle box it goes for another 22 years. Thanks for the info. I could never find out anything on it until today on this board. Thanks again

    Tacklebox is a great place for it.
    Just add a few hooks and some bait on it and you in business:D :D :D :D

    You should know that it's made mostly of pot metal except for a thin steel barrel liner.

    the vast majority of RG / ROHM handguns are pure garbage...

    the small / pocket / snubbie / suicide special / small caliber variants are poorly made, non-steel paperwieghts...

    but there are well made, reliable, steel variants that are worth owning and can be purchased cheaply...

    the RG-38 series are all steel, and well built.
    they weigh a ton, are overbuilt, and are not pretty...
    they are servicable, safe, affordable handguns.

    the SAA .22 revolvers (COLT SAA clones) are decent plinkers...
    not top notch, but safe and well made.

    i picked up an RG-38 for my Dad...

    its heavy, its not pretty...
    but it shoots decent point of aim groups at 12 yds...

    best regards, mike.
