Bosco Arms Company

Saw this on Gunbroker in the RG section. The seller says it has Nazi proofs on it, and the name on the barrel Bosco Arms Company leaves me stumped, can't find anything on them.

The seller has mistaken the "Eagle over N" for a Nazi proofmark.

It looks like another of the many RG-10 revolver variations out there.

Thanks for the information adam01364, I appreciate that! So nice to have a place to ask about zamak guns and not get ones butt kicked around because people don't like them!!!

Its most likely a poor rollmark causing it to look like a "B" in the name. I'm familiar with the Rosco Vestpocket. Yes, Rosco with an "R". Its an RG10 variant.

Wow, a Nazi proofed RG would be a cool find. The Germans pressed into service just about every handgun they could get ahold of so I bet they would have used RG-10's for something if they had been made back then.
