I have a Model CDM .22 short Revolver with pearl looking grips, it is in its original box and the serial # 207803. The box says New York, New York on it. Has anyone heard of this or have any idea of its value???

Cheap. This gun was reincarnated under a number of names: RG10, CDM, Thalco Plinker, Rosco, etc. That yours is in the original box makes it unusual, but it is still a cheap little gun.

If you could find someone who likes collecting Saturday Night Specials, he might pay $40-50 for it.

Here is how to find out how much it will bring: List it on GunBroker with a dollar start. If you don't want to sell it, but only want to test the market, set a ridiculous reserve on it that no one will meet. You will get a pretty good idea of its value.

Thanks for the info, I knew it was probably nothing special but you really don't know unless you ask. It was my Grandfathers and that makes it special to me and knowing its value always interested me. One thing I can say is You better be wearing ear protection! That sucker is loud as hell! Thanks again

Don't shoot it a lot. It wasn't meant to be an every weekend at the range shooter.

You, & anyone else standing near, should also wear eye protection when you shoot it.

I have only shot it about 10 times and that was enough for me. It has been cleaned and back in the box, will probably never shoot again thanks for all your input.

Weren't they the pistols you could buy from the Popular Mechanics magazine for like 5 bucks back in the 60's? I owned one for awhile, not a great shooter but the tie in with the magazine made for an interesting conversation piece.
