Can someone give me the approximate value of an RG 23 .22LR 6 shot revolver made by RG Industries, Inc. of American and German parts. Serial #T7*7.
RG industries was a german firm that imported cheap pistols in the 60's. If the model 23 is a pull pin to get the cylinder out type its worth 25.00 to 50.00. They also made some cowboy type revolvers that are worth up to 125.00
I have a Rg 23 22 swingout revolver with 1 3/4" barrel in good shape, any idea how much it's worth.
hello ,,proably the same numbers as the above values ,,there just not a high dollar pistol and i don't think i ever saw one over 125,,
50 bucks on a good day....
I just took one into a pawn shop and he offered me 40 bucks. Good to know that this is about the best I can expect to get on it.
I had to take it apart as the screw that goes through the hammer had come out. The pawn shop wouldn't take it as is.
Frankly I am only too glad to get rid of it. For one its not a well made pistol. The screw comes out too easily. I know that my dad rarely used it. I know I never shot with him.
Second, in the handle the main spring assembly rests on a washer which has little support. The piston comes down through it which I suppose helps it stay in place but it looks like it could come out of its location and stop the firing. I would have used a design that had the washer set in a gap to help keep it in place better.
I cleaned it up and am taking it back to get what its worth.
I will take my good old S&W .38 service revolver any day over this one.
i got one and i payed $20
It's a saturday nite special. Make sure you are real close before pulling the trigger and hope the other guy doesn't have a better pistol. grin
My 93 yr old Grandfather gave me an RG 23 .22lr Revolver when I was just getting into firearms years ago and when I tried shooting it it misfired 3 out of 6 times and rarely went through a full 6 rounds. I asked my Grandpa if this thing was a piece of **** and he said it's the biggest piece of s%&* i ever bought haha, and he said he bought it for $35 in 1970's. I went to my trusty firearms/FFL dealer and he said its probably worth more for scrap metal. haha. He said the most you could get out of it at auction is probably $30 to $75(On a good day)
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO SELL IT AND SEE WHAT THE MAX PRICE PEOPLE ARE OFFERING PLEASE SEE BELOW
If you do have a RG 23 I would reccomend consigning it or putting it on an auction site. Put a high reserve on it but with a $0.01 starting bid and see what the highest bid was.
For those of you who want more info on why the RG 23 misfires so often please see below.
I finally found out why it misfired so much. I shot 5 rounds through my Ruger 10/22 and picked up the casings. Then I shot what ever rounds would fire in the RG 23 (about 2 of 6 with brand name ammo) and pulled those casings out as well.
When I looked at the firing pin indents on the casings from the Ruger 10/22 the firing pin indent was much larger the the RG 23's. The RG 23's firing pin indent on the casing was tiny and rarely covers enough of the RIM to make the round discharge. Please see below for an example:
RG 23 firing pin indent looks like this ( . ) and the Ruger firing pin indent looks like this ( _ )
Hope you all learned something and I hope my post was helpful.
thanks 4 the help

RG-23 revolvers sold for 19.95 in 1969. They were made of poor materials and low grade workmanship. It is illegal for dealers in S.C. and several other states to sell them.
Value would range from $25 to $95(new in box with papers) depending on mechanical condition and remaining original finish.
According to the Blue Book on Gun Values
your pistol is worth anywhere from 45-95
dollars...NRA condition Codes
Buying and selling are prohibited here.
Well Chase, since you can't play with others, you need to go elsewhere.
I just gor one w 2" barrel paid 25
Youknowwho: You need to read this blog on the RG 10 by MingoFrank which sums up the quality level and value of the Rohm handguns.
Your RG 23 sold for $19.95 in 1969. It and all Rohm revolvers are illegal for a dealer to sell or even repair in S.C. and several other states.
You got no bargin and have an inherently dangerous handgun.
you know mine is not bad, nothing wrong with it never had an unwanted discharge and shoot straight as any pistol I have shot against, I mean yall can talk down on it all yall want but its goo for upclose and personal issues, its never misfired in 7years and I shot this thing all the time and im ex military it get a complete wipe out when its done that could be why, think about that
Oh goody, you are a real man with your 38!! It is important that you cling to your gun and your comic book version of some bible for your identity.
Ted: You need to find another soap box for spreading your opinions.
