I just picked up a RG 14, it was givin to me so the price was right. Only problem is that it was completely disassembled. I've found only two or three parts diagrams but they are of no use as instructions on how to put it back together. Normally most parts lists show where everything goes and even in what order. I am for someone with a RG 14 and if they could take the side cover off and email me some pics showing the guts of the gun. Thank you

It's gonna look a lot like a S&W revolver without the sideplate.
There's a spring to hold the trigger return rod, a coupla posts to sit stuff on, and a lotta toolmarks that show where NOT to put things.
Wish I had a photobucket account; I'd show you dozens of Rohm, RG, Marx and Keucher(sp) innards.

I had an RG .22 once the only weapon Ive ever had that could shoot two feet to the left at 50 yards

The Rohm firearms are worth more as parts guns.

This is not an outrageous signature.

Would seriously suggest you not put it back together. If you do, you might attempt to fire it. Get some clear casting resin and a form, and make a really cool paper weight or book end- or a door stop. They make much better paperweight than guns. Not heavy enough to be used as a boat anchor.

This is probably true. They seem to be a real cheap firearm. Don't seem to carry much value at all and not very dependable. Will look to see if I can find any instructions to help you though.

Full instruction and photos of the entire process can be found on pages 340-350 of the Gun Digest Book Firearms Assembly/Disassembly, Part Two (Revolvers) 2nd Edition. Here is a scan of the page which shows what the internals are supposed to look like when properly assembled.


If you want to stop by with the pistol tonight, look at the book and have a few drinks you are welcome to do so (I live in SoCal).

You must learn things by experience so have fun with the RG. It will benefit you to see how things work.
You will learn what most of us old guys know already.
It is junk. It is dangerous. The best thing to do with one is smash it with a large hammer.

But we all probably had one or two in the past. I remember when they were $14.95 new. Couldn't resist buying one or two. It will shoot over here and over there and one down the barrel and one out the cylinder. It's the gun you want the mugger to have when you pull your Sig on his azz. It's what started the "Saturday Night Special" crap. It wears out quickly so be careful it you try to shoot it that the cylinder is somewhat aligned with the barrel or you will get lead in your eyes. Don't let anyone stand beside you if you shoot it.

I've had a couple of RG pistols. One was a 32lc with a 6" barrel. Surprisingly it was fairly accurate. It was also the only handgun I ever got my ex to shoot and hit anything with. I kept it loaded in an elctronic gun box for her to use if needed. Of course when I asked her to open the box, she couldn't remember how. Oh well.
