Rohm .38 Special RG38S 3 inch Vent Rib Chrome ca 1975 – 1978 Production RG Industries Security Service Revolver 38 Spl  Guns > Pistols > FIE Pistols
Description: From a New England collection comes this RG38S Security Revolver. Manufacturer was Rohm GmbH of Sontheim, West Germany. Importer was RG Industries of Miami. RG Industries was sued out of business in 1986 by none other than Sarah Brady. From this RG’s FF300000 range serial number, and from its mates that we received new during the 1970s, it was manufactured between 1975 and 1978. The encircled 75 above the cylinder yoke is probably a date code. Type is true swing out, single and double action revolver with transfer bar internal safety and thumb latch cylinder release. Construction is steel inside barrel, cylinder, hammer, trigger, and internal parts fitted into a zinc alloy / zamak pot metal frame with pot metal barrel shroud, thumb latch, and hammer spur; and with brown plastic grip panels. Chambering is .38 Smith & Wesson Special Caliber, and cylinder capacity is 6 rounds. RG Revolvers were Not designed to withstand +P ammunition, but we know of a good many of this one’s production mates that survived firing +P. Barrel is two piece 3 inch, pinned into place, with steel inner barrel that has 8 groove right hand 1:18 rifling. Sights are 3 post vent rib with serrated ramp front, with frame integral fixed notch rear. Trigger is .220 smooth face, with .200 steel hammer that carries a factory .500 serrated target spur. Ignition is floating firing pin, with transfer bar internal safety device that prevents the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is fully depressed. Frame is square butt type, medium frame. Weight empty is 34 ounces, with center of gravity at the cylinder stop and trigger. Finish is chrome plated, with blued trigger and hammer, and black cylinder thumb latch. Surface detractions on this RG38 are moderate, principally weakness to the chrome and an inconspicuous blemish at the top of the left grip panel. We rate it as Very Good, 75 percent vicinity by our estimate. Photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Double action trigger pull is tight but smooth 12 pound vicinity. On both single and double action, the cylinder times correctly on all six positions. Cylinder has no lateral play with the trigger fully depressed. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap directly above the barrel’s forcing cone is minimal, only a faint etchy impress. We estimate it was fired fewer than 500 times, all with standard velocity ammunition. Trigger rebound is good. Replacement pricing on similar revolvers from Armscor and Rossi is $300 or more. We’re offering the Reagan Era RG38S in the photos, however, for only $ 189.00. Not transferable to civilian residents of California, Illinois, District of Colombia, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, or any jurisdiction with a Melt Law or Approved Firearms Roster.
