RG revolver

Postby nwmousegunner » Thu May 03, 2018 12:48 pm

I recently acquired an RG 14S. I don't remember seeing that model. The ones I remember were I think the RG 10, a rather crude looking pistol if I am remembering correctly. This was back in the early sixties and they were available for 12 to 14 dollars. I think the model 14 is a nicer looking gun. This one was given to me a friend who was cleaning out her house for a move, so the price was right. I test fired it and it fired every shot of about a half box. Accuracy was not bad, considering the barrel is 1 7/8 inches. I made some bird head grips out of walnut for it and it looks like a real gun. I will post some pictures if I can get my son to figure out how

I think the 14 is one step up from the 10. Swing out cylinder, but still requires pulling a pin.

I've seen the RG14, but the "s" part of yours I haven't seen. I just did a quick search and found a 14S with a long barrel. It looks pretty nice with the long barrel and a rib on top of it for the front sight.

The 14s was the last model of the 14 series made. It had an updated barrel look, square grips and a pull pin instead of a screw out pin. They were only made for about 2 years before RG shut down in 1986. They came with a 3 inch barrel and the 1 5/8 barrel in blue and crome. I have made a habit of collecting the RG - 14 series guns and have about 20 of them. I traded a mini bike frame for a 14 3 inch barrel in 1980 ( yea another world, I was 15 then and made the trade with a friends dad! ) I guess I have had the bug ever since !!!!
