.22 Revolvers with 8 Lands and Grooves and Right Hand Twist

Can you guys give me some firearms that meet these characteristics?

I'm working on a paper for law school and am trying to find some firearms with these characteristics.

Thanks in advance.

My Mathews is outdated now, but a quick scan shows the only revolvers that meet those parameters were ones made in Germany prior to GCA '68 by Rohm (RG) and Herbert Schmidt. The two companies probably were connected or at least used barrels from the same source.

If I may ask, what is the subject of the paper? If it is contemporary, those so-called "Saturday Night Specials" are pretty outdated among modern gang bangers, who seem to be able to obtain higher class weaponry like Glocks.

It's reviewing a case of someone who claims to be wrongfully convicted. The bullets were examined and met this criteria but the weapon was never found.

I appreciate your response.

If it's not clear yet: those are VERY cheap revolvers. Very. The sort of thing that later got called "Saturday Night Specials". Rohm and RG were the two most common brand names but there were a number of others.

Most of us on these forums would test-fire one with a bench vice and 100yds of string once before firing it "normally" .

Now that was silly.

Just FWIW, Marlin Microgroove .22's have 16 grooves (and are all rifles).
