Burgo Model No. 100

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Hello all,
I've got a Burgo Model No.100 caliber 22 Short, double action revolver. It belonged to my grandfather, and came to me via his possessions after his passing several years ago. It's in fine working condition, except for one thing, the grips. THe left grip is missing, as is the screw, and the right grip is warped and bowed out away from the frame, with an oversized screw attempting to hold it in place.

I'd like to replace the grips, and get it back in action for backyard plinking and fooling around, etc., but can't find replacement grips anywhere. I don't want to spend a ton of money, because after all, it is a Burgo which is basically the same production line as RG/Rohm, and probably isn't worth more than about $35 or so, if that. However, I would like to be able to use it, without resorting to carpet padding and electrical tape for a grip

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks for the help,

Sounds like it might be a good time to start practicing your wood working skills. There are various places that stock thin wood slabs of walnut, rosewood, etc. for making knife handles, etc., or perhaps a hobby supply store. Pick up some smaller rasps, sureforms, chisels, sanding blocks, sand paper (80, 120, 220, and 320 grit), and have at it yourself. Good luck!

I also have one of these guns. Has not been fired in over 50 years.
My father and I used to use it for fun shooting. I would not fire it
now for sure. The grips are warped bad on it. Still an interesting
gun to just keep. My father got it in a pawn type deal. Some one
need some money and pawned it to my father for $5 if I recall correctly.
He also got a German 7 mm pistol the same way.
. I am told it was called a bicycle gun
or vest pocket gun.

WOW. I thought I was the only one with a BRUGO. I bought it for $6 at a gun shop years ago for a tackle box gun. It is classic junk, made with capgun technology.

Mine is chrome plated with brown/wood color plastic grips.

I'd sell/give you mine but it is registered in NYC and FBI so I'll never transfer it.

Have you tried e-parts? they have lots of stuff. http://www.gunpartscorp.com/
