    Looks like a predecessor to the current Heritage lineup.

    There were a few companies making single action revolvers, especially 22's in West Germany during the 60's and probably later. The Western TV/movie craze was in full swing, and there was a demand for them so someone stepped in to fill that demand. Rohm/RG comes to mind as one of them, I believe. They were imported under various name. Quality varried all over the place.

    Sportarms was probably a distributor since it lists home as Miami, Florida. A lot of importers did/do business out of there.

    You might try Numrich http://www.gunpartscorp.com/ for a cylinder. Other than them or some other online parts house, I have no idea other than just the luck of stumbling up on one. The original manufacturer is probably long gone, or making anything but guns now.

    Looks like a fun plinker though. Is that a safety on the left side of the frame, next to the hammer?

    I *think* this is an inexpensive import. Google "German .22 revolvers" or something to that effect.

    If it is what I think it is ("Buffalo Scout" - I believe also an FIE gun, see below), quality will be hit/miss. Suggest you take it out and shoot it before spending $ on spare cylinder.

    Case in point: I had an FIE .22 in college that would, on a good day, hold minute-of-barn at 20 yards.

    Yours might different, but I'm not going to hold my breath for you.

    thanks, it is actually quite accurate, i was able to get a 1 inch group with agulia super colbri's at 20 paces in the back yard so i think with .22LR CCI minimags it will be a good field carry gun for when im hunting.
