      S&W 38 Special/Ronm KG38 Info

      My first post here. A friend has his dad's S&W 38 special revolver. In excellent condition. S# 0936xx. He wants to sell it--anyone know its value, how old, etc.? I unfortunately don't know anything about them.

      He also has a (German?) 38 special revolver, ivory-colored grips. All writing on the gun in German I think--something like RONM KG38, S# 1467xx. Any info on either/both is greatly appreciated. In the meantime I'm trying to get pix from him.

      Pictures will help tremendously. Look forward to some "free" advice whenever you are able to post some pictures. You can probably find the age of the pistol by going to S&W website with the serial # and determine when it was manufactured.

      Info

      That German handgun is probably a "ROHM", and the model # is "RG38". I have one that sounds like exactly the same. Check the various gun boards for more information. Rohm guns run from very cheap 22 rimfires to some better quality centefires. I don't have their model number listing with me right now, . My RG38 is a fairly decent shooter. Alot of people will look down their noses at a Rohm, and rightfully so with their cheap guns, but they also made some decent guns. Now, I think, they only manufacture 'flare guns', or 'starter pistols'. Some times their guns went under the 'Reck' name. You can still find alot of parts for these on the gun auction boards.
