Yes, I am bored. Plans fell through so I figured I'd take pictures of some of the toys today.

Gecado, made in Germany.

At first I thought it might be a Rohm, but their guns did not fill in between the trigger guard and frame like the Gecado. RG's are more like the profile of a Smith.

Then it must be a sister company to Gecado; that frame, trigger guard, and cylinder/ejection rod are dead on - even the grips. :confused:

And maybe one branded by one of many importers of this particular revolver.

The only one I know is FIE. Drawing a blank on any others, and anything else is as good a guess as flipping a coin because at that time European manufacturers were playing games against changing export/import laws in the EU and here in the US, remnants of GCA-68 and so on. Assembly in other countries, shifting names, importers, etc.

It is a Herter's Guide model.
