Here's another listing where we have to give hot competition to our good old friendly competitor Angelo Guarino. He now rides in a Cadillac and sells good guns, but he used to have a Chevrolet. I still do. Angelo, though, is the best coonass in all of Louisiana.

Part of our current proprietor’s initiation into the firearms industry consisted in rides to Miami with our proprietor emeritus in a long wheel base 1957 Chevrolet with a home-made plywood camper. The return trip to Northeast Mississippi and Southwest Tennessee would see the truck bed and camper filled almost to the top with cases of RG 10 revolvers from Eig Cutlery in Miami, parent company to F.I.E., later European American Armory, as well as Heritage Arms, Excam, and R.G. Industries. Our proprietor emeritus was, at one time, the exclusive factory-equipped armorer for the RG 10 .22 Short Revolver. This specimen was manufactured, of course, by Rohm Gesontheim in West Germany around 1960, but is marked only Made In Germany on the right side of the barrel. It is the target variant of the pre-RG 10, and sports a 2 3/8 inch barrel. Note that the removable ejector pin is not original to the revolver but is factory RG, likely from the later RG 14. We rate this one as Very Good, perhaps even Excellent. Bore and cylinder chambers are excellent; and the mechanism is as good as any of the RG 10s ever were. Sadly, this Eig .22 Short does not have its original black and brown two-piece box; it does, happily, have its original cleaning brush, and it comes in a vintage flannel bag from its estate in adjacent McNairy County. Serial number is low, five-digit 55,000 range. We estimate this revolver was manufactured some time between 1958 and 1963. It sold new for about $12.00. Own it for a modest inflation-adjusted price of only $ 139.95.

$12 flat fee shipping to the lower 47 states; $20 to Alaska, California, or Hawaii. We accept checks with no more than 7 days hold. MC or Visa phone- or fax-in orders shipped same day; USPS Money Order paid items shipped same day. Cashier's checks are a waste of time & money; we hold them longer than we do personal checks. We can accept FFLs not only in the mail, but also by scan or fax, so long as they are legible and signed. We always include our FFL gun lock and a copy of the Federal Youth Firearms Safety Act brochure with handgun orders in order to make the transferring dealer's life easy. We offer a 7 day money back return privilege, excluding return shipping and also excluding NIB guns and lay-aways. We accept lay-away with 20% down, balance in 90 days - lay aways not refundable, though. Local pickup ok; local area Non-licensees add $10 TBI fee + 9 3/4% Sales Tax. Internet phone hours 8:30 - 4 CST Mon - Sat CST. Robertson Trading Post 117 Front Street PO Box 365 Henderson, Tennessee 38340 7319897641 8:30-4 CST Mon-Sat john at robertsontradingpost dot com

We consider trade offers. Blue & Walnut Good, Black Plastic bad. No like plastic guns except SP-1s. S&W, Colt Stainless Very Good. We even like RG, H&R, Taurus, Rossi Revolvers. Gold, Silver good, esp. Morgan Dollars and Walking Liberty Half Dollars. We like .243 and .30-30 very much. Remember, these listings cost time and money, and NOBODY keeps their guns clean
