    My brother recently got this little .22lr pistol it says roma on the side and has made in germany on the cylinder. He's not into guns at all, I know a good deal and I have heard of roma but I can't for the life of me remember anything about the brand. I don't remember the model but its small frame, blued, white grips, and probably no more than a three inch barrel. I googled it and got zip.

    I think you may have gotten an RG.

    They say ROHM GMBH on their barrels or cylinders and RG on their grips. They are among the cheapest of the cheap. The smallest ones and the centerfires should be approached with caution, the ordinary .22s can be fun if they are not worn out or out of adjustment. They are not supposed to have any real resale value, but their notoriety has lent them a certain perverse glamor. An RG was used in the shooting of Ronald Reagan and his press secretary, James Brady, as well as a few other fairly high profile attacks.

    Warning: if you are seen at the range with an RG, true gun intelligentsia members will heap scorn and ridicule upon you.

    Sorry I was going off memory on the spelling at least I was in the ballpark. It's in perfect condition the guy he got it off of just collected guns probably never even shot this one by the looks of it I figure its safe. If its not oh well I ain't shooting it it feals and looks like a kids toy. I've got rugers and a dan wesson:D I don't need a little mouse gun.:cool:
