Any knowledge of

"Roscoe" revolvers from Germany?

Eight shot 22 lr revolver. No statement of "East" or "West" Germany so it's recent or pre WWII.

Any sightings?

Archie, the trade name 'Rosco' was used on Rohm Gmbh revolvers. Rohm made a series of very inexpensive handguns that were imported into the USA during the 1950's & 1960's. Today these handguns typically sell for less than $100 used and aren't considered very reliable. Hope this helps!

Hell, I don't even consider Rohms to be guns.

Thanks.

That's about what I was thinking (afraid of).

Happily, this is just a curiousity question; neither I nor any close friends have one. (Spotted by friend in Pawn Shop.)
