Have you ever heard about the Reck?

Hello, i need profesjonal help
I am wondering if any of you heard about a revolver caled Reck...
I have one after my father whos to old to keep it for himself, so i have it now...
its full name is "Reck duble-action model r15 38 spezial", it is prodused in West-Germany
so i guess it was made betven 1949 and 1990. my father told me once that its built on the same consept as a smith and wesson, and it looks realy like a smith and wesson also.

i have tryed to google it and searching wikipedia and so far i have had no luck
if any one have heard about this revolver, pleas enlighten me, and if you know any links, that would be helpfull...

i would have put a picture here, but i dont know how to...
do i need to have the picture on a website to get it on here?
pleas help me on this matter also...

Forgive my English

This thing is pretty elusive but im sure someone here knows something. Does the revlover work?

As for the pics, I'm not sure but I think there is a thread around somewhere explaing how to do it.

Good luck!

it kinda works i got a few problems with it,

1. when you cock it,(is that legal to say) an squees the trigger gently, the
trigger and your finger will be pushed forward an your finger will slow it al down so the round wont fire.
i dont know if this is normal with revolvers as this is the only one i have ever tried...

2. that little metal thing that keeps the cylinder from spinning when it not
supose to, is broken...

3. it got some cosmetic foults...

about those pictures, now i know how to do it but the pics i got is to big
(1,48 mb) how can i make them smaller...?
i am a noob on computers

I found a site with some photos of a blank firing Reck revolver:







It looks a lot like a K-frame to me.

No, it's a close look-alike of the Colt Detective Special as made with the heavy, shrouded barrel.

To be very blunt, the Reck firearms are considered to be junk, commonly known as a "Saturday Night Special".

They were poorly made of poor quality materials and have little to no value.
After Reck stopped making real guns, they made blank and gas pistols.

I don't have any info on particular models other than some very early autos they made. It appears the company was sold/merged and is now "Umarex" and makes air guns. I don't know if they would have any info or not.
