    F.I.E. was an importer & imported them in the sixties, maybe seventies also. They're functional plinkers; I have one in .22LR. They're not worth much, though.

    Arminius has (was?) been around for a while. I know they used to make tiny velo guns way back when but the F.I.E.-connected guns were low-priced items. I wouldn't mind having one chambered in .22 WMR for knockaround puposes. Got a picture?

    I have one in 22LR - It's a fun shooter. It was one of my first pistols. Bought it new at an Ace Hardware back in the day when a gun was a tool (dang - I'm showing my age). FIE imported them. I think the metal is alloy. FIE folded back in the late 80's, I think. Probably worth ~ $100 to $175 depending on condition.

    I agree with the other posters. The arminius (was F.I.E.) imported this revolvers. I bought the 38 special 4 inch one back in 1981. I paid about $125.00 for one at a Pawn shop in National City, CA. I owned it over five years. It was a fair revolver but not great. I sold it for about $85.00 dollars in 1988.
