Came across a small .22 revolver, 6 shot I think. Yellowed (fake ivory I think)plastic grips with a small emblem of a mountain with a pick in it. Gun is blued with fixed sights. The initials PIC are on the emblem on the grip. Has a skinny 2" blued barrel and a side loading gate. Ser # 022xx on the left side of the frame forward of the cylinder. No other markings on the gun.

"PIC" (their logo was a mining pick) stands for "Precise Imports Corporation", an outfit during the 60's that imported small revolvers from Germany and Italy. If you look under the grips, you may find a maker's mark showing it was actually made by someone like Reck. After the GCA 68, they dropped out of sight, since they couldn't bring in any more guns considered "Saturday Night Specials" :banghead:
