Can anyone provide info about the above mentioned gun? It has a 6 shot cylinder, 1.75 inch barrel, white plastic grips with "OMEGA" in a medallion. Barrel is stamped "Germany". When were these made? Approximate cost? Disassembly instructions? Parts availability?

Omega - 100 - 22 - short - Don't Know - 88872 -
Has what looks like a bird marking with N or Z over marking Cannot find anyone who has seen a model like this? Who made it know its from Germany my Aunt had two I inherited one is 100 model the other is an older looking one with a screw on the bottom of grip. The omega emblem is on grip but the older one looks different than the 100 model

Answer:
Debra, my guess is that your revolver was probably manufactured by EM-GE of West Germany sometime in the 1960s. The company marked a line of cheap .22 rimfire and .32 center-fire revolvers under the Em, Ge, G&E, Omega and PIC brand names among others. Many shooters (including myself) consider these revolvers unsafe to fire. Value will be in the $50 range if you can find a buyer. Marc
