We cannot accept a C&R on this revolver until 2016. We think it was made in 1965, but we lack the documentation. We know it was made no later than 1966. From a New England collection comes this .22 Short caliber IMP brand revolver. Manufacturer was Imperial Metal Corporation, of the Burrow of Manhattan in New York City. This IMP has a low serial number, 0013000 range, so we estimate it was manufactured in 1965 or 1966, before the company moved to Kingston, North Carolina, in 1968. Parts manufacturer was Rohm GmbH of Sontheim, West Germany. From our records, these were billed as RG 10 family of revolvers. Type is side loading, single and double action revolver, with manual ejection through the port with the removable ejector pin. Construction is steel one piece barrel, cylinder, hammer, trigger, and internal parts fitted into a zinc alloy / zamak pot metal frame with pot metal collar type front sight, and with white plastic grip panels. Only the frame was made in Soho. Chambering is .22 Short Only, and cylinder capacity is 6 rounds. It will not chamber .22 Long or Long Rifle caliber ammunition. Barrel is 2 1/2 inch one piece, pinned into place, with 8 groove right hand 1:16 rifling. Sights are muzzle collar blade front, with frame integral fixed notch rear. Trigger is .220 smooth face, with .195 width serrated spur hammer. Ignition is hammer nose firing pin. Mechanism does Not have a transfer bar, so the revolver should be loaded with 5 rounds and the hammer resting on an empty chamber. Frame is square butt type, small frame. Weight empty is 12.5 ounces, with center of gravity at the rear cylinder face. Surface detractions on this IMP are moderate, principally small patches of gray showing through the anodized or perhaps enamel finish. We rate it as Good, perhaps Very Good, 70 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 15 pound vicinity. On both single and double action, the cylinder rotates and times correctly on all six positions. Cylinder has no lateral play with the trigger fully depressed. From the minimal carbon deposits on the cylinder face, we estimate this .22 has been fired fewer than 50 times. We’re offering the circa 1965 New York IMP in the photos for only $119.00.
