RG Industries Mod 14 .22 LR


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


So my grandmother has decided to give me the family firearms and of the guns this one is the one I'm most leary of. I don't know how old it is but the markings include:

MOD RG 14
CAL .22 LR
RG IND.
MIAMI FLA.

Its blued with a 2.5" barrel and simulated wood plastic grips. It seems to be in relatively good shape.

As is, it looks cheap and impractical for any use I can think of. What if anything could I expect to get for this revolver if I were to try to sell it off at a gun or pawn shop?

Thanks,

Patrick

Your observations about the RG revolvers is quite astute. They are extremely cheap and have a very short life if use much. They are the epitome of the so-called "Suicide Special" or "'Saturday Night Special." Importation of these was stopped by the restrictions of GCA '68.

Typically these sold for $12-15 when they were available. To be absolutely blunt, they are a POS.

RG did make some revolvers that were in the $30 bracket, but IIRC the RG 14 cost about $12.95 and the base pin had to be unscrewed to remove the cylinder, as it wasn't a swing-out. It was similar to the Triumph series of revolvers, and the best use i ever saw of one was a friend of mine in Biloxi kept one in his tackle box to kill rats with. He didn't hit many, but kept them scurrying.

You might get about $25 at the right pawn shop if you know how to haggle. They can sell them for around $100 just based on the fact that it's the same model of pistol that John Hinckley used in his Ronald Reagan Assassination attempt.
