Hi Steve
I did a google search for you and all I could come up with was this
So obviously you're not the only one interested...!
Do you have a picture you could post?
or could you tell us more about this pistol?

lol..i think your price has one too many 0's and id estimate your pistols in the 100-mabey 150 range if extras clean..
but you can ask whatever you think is fair and if someone gives you the 1000 then let me know who he is ,,i got a bridge for sale! lol..lol.

I called the oldest gun shop in nashville they know of the armsco company from the late 1940s to late 1950s they made the 7 shot 22 cal handgun it was sold in hardware stores and gun shops not sears worth $100 - $200 depending cond. Parts if any in NY you can call Gun city usa at <phone> for more information.

IN OCTOBER OF 1971 I PURCHASED A ARMS CO. 22 PISTOL BRAND NEW FOR $19 I THINK, NOT SURE ON THE PRICE. IT WAS MY FIRST PISTOL THAT I EVER OWNED. I PURCHASED IT AS A BIRTHDAY PRESENT TO MYSELF AS I WAS OLD ENOUGH TO BUY FOR MYSELF. I PURCHASED IT FROM FREIDMAN'S ARMY NAVY SURPLUS STORE IN NASHVILLE TN. THEY WERE THE MANUFACTURERS OF THE PISTOL. THE PISTOL IS CHEAP DON'T BELIEVE IT WOULD HIT THE SAME SPOT TWICE IF IT WAS IN A VICE. ONCE AGAIN YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. HOPE THIS HELPED YOU ON YOUR SEARCH. IF YOU ARE WONDERING FREIDMAN'S IS STILL IN NASHVILLE DON'T KNOW IF THEY STILL MAKE THE PISTOL OR NOT. YES I STILL OWN MINE IT STILL FIRES AND IS 38 YRS OLD

I was born here in Nashville in 1942 and had never heard of this gun company. I, too, have one in very good condition. It shoots good too, although I never shoot it any more. I cleaned it and have it in a display case. I've tried from time to time to find info too, but still nothing. I was just serching again today to see if anything ever showed up.
I like the fach that I have a gun made in my home town. It's old like me, but neither are worn out yet. Everything still works great...haha.

Anyone have a manual for it?? I can't figure out how to load this baby. Looks to be in pristine shape just can't move the pin or figure out how it works.
Thanks,

To remove the pin for removing the cylinder: the screw threads are left handed. Meaning, turn the pin as if installing it. The pin is then used as the ejector, push it through the cylinder to remove the empty cases.
