I have a herbert schmidt revolver. Markings on gun as follows: Cal .22 magn, germany, 3 shields one has a 68 in it, ser #, and the interresting thing "nato" also stamped on the butt of the metal between the wooden grips. Any info and value of the revolver? It is a 6 shot. Thank you.....eric

I would suspect they are not valued very highly. Mine is a 'Liberty 8' brand, IIRC Buffalo Arms was another brand. Herbert Schmidt revolvers were imported by many importers and sold under different brands in the mid-60's. Try a Google search and check out Numrich:

'Small frame' revolvers were made of die cast zinc alloy (pot metal) with steel lined cylinders and barrels. Mine shoots amazingly well for what it is!

Schmidt made inexpensive "SNS" revolvers on the same order as those by Rohm and others. After GCA '68 banned import of those, Schmidt made guns that could be imported, such as the one D.R. Greysun shows. None were high quality, though they were better than some of that breed.

Value runs around $75 or less for the larger guns, and the small guns are very hard to sell. Dealers won't take them, since any profit would not be worth the paperwork, and they could not give any kind of warranty.
