From its home domicile in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, comes this attractive RG31 Revolver. Manufacturer until 1968 was Rohm GmbH of Sontheim, West Germany. After 1968, RG Industries opened in Miami, with German Barrels, cylinders, and part fitted into US Made Cast Frames. RG Industries was sued out of business in 1985 by none other than Sarah Brady. From this RG’s Q110000 range serial number, it was manufactured in late 1978 or early 1979. Type is screw pin swing out, single and double action revolver. Construction is steel inside barrel, cylinder, hammer, trigger, and internal parts fitted into a zinc alloy / pot metal frame with pot metal barrel shroud, and with brown plastic grip panels. Chambering is .38 Smith & Wesson Special Caliber, and cylinder capacity is 5 rounds. RG Revolvers were Not designed to withstand +P ammunition. Barrel is two piece, pinned into place, with steel inner barrel that has 8 groove right hand 1:18 rifling. Sights are two post vent rib serrated ramp front, with frame integral fixed notch rear. Trigger is .200 serrated face, with .400 target width serrated hammer 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 round butt type, medium frame. Weight empty is 24 ounces, with center of gravity at the rear cylinder face. Surface detractions on this RG31 are minimal to moderate, principally light scouring on the barrel shroud surface, and edge whitening and occasional light freckling to the blue. We rate it as Very Good, 80 to 85 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 five 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. Trigger rebound is good with the cylinder closed; the RG31 was not designed to have its action manipulated with the cylinder open. From the minimal blast effect, and from the minimal carbon deposits on the cylinder face, we estimate this RG has been fired fewer than 100 times. Replacement pricing on similar revolvers from Armscor and Rossi is $300 or more. We’re offering the Carter Era RG31 in the photos, however, for only $ 169.00.
