    This question would be better served on Harley's forum and it will probably be moved to there. However your .22 revolver is German made by Herbert Schmidt, Ostheim an der Rhon, Germany. History 101- During the late 50s and throughout the 60s the were a number of Westerns on prime time TV. I believe 36 at one time. This lead to a high demand for single action cowboy guns, that was met by importing vast numbers of inexpensive firearms from Germany, Italy and Spain. I won't delve on Colt or Ruger's history but they also figured into the game plan. Yours is one of those guns. Value, the Texas Scout is listed at 125 in exc down to 25 as in parts gun. BTW Herr Schmidt is no longer is in the firearm business and parts for your Texas Scout are almost as scarce as hens teeth. e-gunparts may have a few. Hope that helps :)

    Whelen,
    Do you have any other name, description, information, etc.? Frankly, I never heard of the name before (and I've lived in Texas for nearly 68 years). Without more info it sounds suspiciously like an inexpensive, house brand, knockoff pistol made for a jobber or store. Does it shoot well?

    Good shooting and be safe.

    ps: I see Ron James finished typing while I was editing my post.
