Has anybody heard of RG Industries of Miami,Florida? I know they made or sold .22 caliber revolvers. Anyone know anything else about them??

I remember they were selling guns about 15 years ago, but haven't seen or heard from them since.
I run that same question on the S&W web site and got the same responses. They were junk. A friend ask me about it as he has one that I had never seen. I was in the dark when I asked about it. I see the light now..10-4..
Thanks for the info....... Baldy
I own a couple of RG IND. 22 LR revolvers. I do agree with all of you about their poor quality, however replacement parts are available and usually pretty cheap. With a little TLC and a few new parts here and there, they make very good backup pieces.
I have one...I can say, it hasn't fallen apart yet.Not accurate at all.
I think it's only purpose is for point-blank use...a last resort sort of thing.It has sentimental value to me ....or It would have been gone along time ago.
I imagine most are used to rob gas stations and then are tossed as far as possible into a river....
Where do you find the parts. My Father gave me one when I was young and in a bad marriage.......never used it, but now I have lose the base pin that keeps the chamber from flopping around. Would love to find the pin.

and click on the link for the model you own. If they have the cylinder pin available, it will show a price, then assuming you have a credit card you can order it and have it shipped directly to your home.

First time posting on this site. took a bit to figure out
I actually worked for the place. They were forced to go out of business after Brady sued for millions. In the end, were able to correct many faults except for the RG22L.
They products a RG14 2" and 4" barrels, RG23, RG 25 (SA), RG31, RG38, RG42 and had started to roll out a RG74 which ceramic molds were used. Frames were cast in Miami and the parts sets were imported from Germany by. Miami had mostly Cubans and did what was expected. They also product drill and precision lathe chucks; the latter were for oil field operations. They closed their doors the first part of 86.
RG31 and 38 were down right nasty and dangerous to fire. RG22L would fire 2 degrees to the left. RG25 would jam. All would shake and rattle. Took a lot of stress trying to correct simple machining error. Cheap labor comes with a price, thus the nickname "Saturday Night Special"

I have a RG 26, a 25 cal nice size carry but the holding pin is missing. Numrich is sold out. Any other suggestions for a source? Also, any reason to believe this little
semiautomatic has better quality than the other models you mentioned? I inherited it from my Dad; not sure where he got it but I like the size for carry.
Pure and simple - JUNK.
