Kicked it out of the sand and said, "wtf, that's a pistol grip!" Can't identify any maker marks or s.n.'s as of yet.  Looks cheap, plastic grips, alloy frame with steel barrel (about .38) and cylinder.  I'm going to douse it with naval jelly and see if I can't find some markings on it.  I don't know whether it is loaded or not. Anyone know when the next gun buy back is taking place?

This was on the AZ side of the Colorado River near Yuma.  Also found several pennys, a dime, 1920 wheat cent, stainless spoon and a matchbox car. The area was filthy with aluminum cans, shreads of cans, pull tabs, and beer caps.  I wish people would pick up their trash.  Found a sterling ring in the same area a couple of days ago.

Put that thing in a bath of rust eating chemicals and see if it comes out. It'd be funny as hell if it still worked.
Link Posted: 5/24/2010 4:03:16 PM EDT
I wonder if its possible to restore that cosmetically.

I wonder if it's real or a toy?

Does it have heft like a real gun?
Link Posted: 5/24/2010 4:07:13 PM EDT


RG?
Link Posted: 5/24/2010 4:08:16 PM EDT
Looks suspiciously like an RG .32 or .38 revolver.

Flush that toilette and drink some water, you dehydrated gold digger.

If it's yellow, let it mellow?

Oh, I wish I had that in the high wattage ultrasonic cleaner I used to use at work.  A little pumice in the water............

It's real.  I can see the rifling up at the muzzle and the cylinder is "suppose" to swing out.

Anyone got any tips for removing corrosion from alloy?  I got it soaking in naval jelly right now but I don't think it is going to work on the frame.

Link Posted: 5/24/2010 4:11:38 PM EDT
Looks like a lot of pot metal on it.   Is it real?





If it is, I'll bet ya $20 that it's got a body attached to it.

You can sell it at the gas station of your choice for at least $200, or so I'm told.
Link Posted: 5/24/2010 4:13:29 PM EDT
Looks like an RG.  RGs are junk guns extrordinaire.

Every RG I've seen (and can find pics of) has grip screws.  The grip on this pistol has none, and looks like it's some kind of slip on deal.  Maybe aftermarket?  Don't factory RG grips all have the RG logo as well?
Link Posted: 5/24/2010 4:15:06 PM EDT
Maybe a Rossi or Charter arms?

Rohm 38





Note the circle on the side.  Rear frame contour looks similar as well.

Cool.
Link Posted: 5/24/2010 4:16:24 PM EDT
It looks like an Arimus revolver. I am not sure of the spelling though.
Link Posted: 5/24/2010 4:18:00 PM EDT
Mail it to Drsalee and he can toss it in an ultrasonic parts cleaner.
Then he can post updates and drag this out even further.

I swear to god, I'm going to find a hooker tree one day, and only take pics of the freakin seed.

That looks like a winner.  The medallion is missing, the grip is held on by 1 screw on the butt and the crane looks dead on.  Lemme go see how the jelly is doing, brb...

ARMINIUS REVOLVER



Look at the grip and back sight. I had one like this in .22.
Link Posted: 5/24/2010 4:22:21 PM EDT
Dude.......That is not going buff out. Cool find though. And somebody on this sight is doing the face plant. While thinking they should have buried it deeper

 Found it. A damn shame such a finely crafted revolver has left us.

Because it is MIA along with your flange bolt cap and toe-nail clippers?  And, it would seem, the flush handle.

The ultimate "truck gun" if you can get it back to functioning conditioning.
