Arminius .22 revolver

Hello,

I just came into a new little firearm, it is a Arminius .22 revolver HW5 . I have google searched it, and cant really find any good info on it. Can someone out there let me know a little about this firearm. I appreciate any information someone can give.

Arminius revolvers were made by Herman Wierach of Germany.Wierach made (still makes? I don't know) very high quality air rifles for the european market. Their firearms were a little different in appearance and ergonomics compared to a S&W but are of good quality. Congratulations.

I too have one of these odd balls. I'll take some photos and post later tonight. Nifty little guns but you are right, the ergo is a bit off.

Putting a trigger shoe on one of these IS really "gilding the lilly"!

It looks like that one got rode hard and put up wet a few times.....but the photos give me the impression that the action is still tight. looks like a great plinker/hiking and fishing companion.

She still fires good. Aim is low, it is consistent so I just aim a little high with it. I am going to clean it up really good and possibly have it re-blued.
