Dear Sirs, I have a ARMINIUS 8 shot 22magnum revolver with a extra 22LR camber. It is made in Germany. It has H. Weihlrach Sportwaffen Mellrichstadt just to the right of the chamber/ rt. side and H W 7T to the left of the chamber/ left side. It has F I F MIAMI FLA on the right side of the barrel. Can anyone tell me about this pistol or where I might look for the info Thank you.
Arminius is not well known for it's quality. My ex-brother-in-law had one of those in 45LC and it blew up on him. The cylinder blew and shot 2-3 rounds off at one time. I'm not trying to insult your gun, just telling you what I know. Also, it's FIE, not FIF. They are a big importer of foreign guns. Hope this helps.
If you are going to put it into the bottom of your tackle box and forget about it, except to give it a going over every once in a while with 0000 steel wool and power steering fluid -- then it is OK for that purpose.
The are about the same as an RG Industries.
You would be hard pressed to get more than $50 on trade in.
For my money, they beat RG Industries. Some of their .22s are fairly accurate. It is a beginner's gun. Shoot it, enjoy it and swap it or sell it when you get tired of it. Then buy a .22 Ruger. They are inexpensive and with a little care, will last longer than you.
