ROHM (RÖHM) RG-88 and RG-59 Blank Pistol Full Review

Type: Blank Pistols.
Manufacturer: ROHM (RÖHM).
Model: RG-88, RG-59
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 1.3 / 1 pounds.
Barrel: Front firing semi plugged.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Single & double action.
Ammunition Type: 9mm P.A.K. / .380 Crimped.
Ammunition Capacity: 7 / 5 rounds.
FPS: N/A.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the RG-88 and RG-59 in single action is very light with the RG-59 having virtually no take up at all while the RG-88 has some take up but then a noticeable and predictable release point. Both guns have medium to heavy yet smooth double action triggers.

Accuracy: NA.
Build Quality: The overall build quality for the ROHM RG-88 and RG-59 blank guns is excellent, being German made they are built to last and the fit and finish is very good. There are steel parts where they need to be like in the barrel, pins, screws and reenforcing parts, the rest of the gun is generally made out of a zinc metal with only the grips being plastic.

Realism: The ROHM RG-88 and ROHM RG-59 are not exact replicas of any given guns in production as this would make importing them into Canada even more difficult, but they do share similarities with some real guns in production. The RG-88 semi auto looks to be based around a Walther PPK design while the RG-59 has that Smith & Wesson Snub Nosed Revolver look to it. As for looking like and working like real guns, they do this very well, with the exception of the dangerous bullet coming out of the barrel!
Purchase from: The Replica Airguns Canada Store.

Pros:

  • German made quality, materials fit and finish is all excellent.
  • Almost all metal with some reenforced steel parts.
  • Nice light single action triggers on both guns with double action ability wehn needed.
  • Both are front firing with semi plugged barrels.
  • Come with flare adaptors and cleaning rods.
  • Seem to be some of the only blank guns we can get here in Canada right now.

Cons:

  • Not actual exact replicas of any specific guns in production.
  • The RG-59 only works with the .380 crimped, 9mm P.A.K. balnks are a bit too long.
  • Expensive due to them being harder to get and in high demand in Canada.

Comments:
As with pretty much all blank guns, they are mostly for show so it all comes down to how do they look and do they go bang when they are supposed to! In both cases they get top marks. Both the RG-88 semi auto and RG-59 revolver feel solid and the mechanical parts are tight and smooth giving a confident feeling when holding them. I like the larger caliber blanks over the .22 crimped blanks as they have a bigger bang but they will set you back in the cost department a bit more as the price for 9mm P.A.K. and .380 blanks will be a lot more than .22 crimped so keep this in mind when choosing a blank gun. If you're looking for a well made and dependable blank pistol then you really can not go wrong with any of the ROHM blank guns we sell in the Canada Replica Airguns Store.

ROHM RG-88 RG-59 Blank Guns & Umarex CP99 Pellet Pistol Update

As with most new items I pickup, I like to share them with everyone. I am checking into some more ROHM blank guns, an RG-59 and RG-88, the RG-59 is a lot like the ROHM RG-56 .22 caliber blank revolver I sell in the Canada Replica Airguns Store but in .380 caliber and the one I show off here is a 5 shot two-tone model. Other than that they use the same frame and mechanical parts throughout.

I also received a black/blued ROHM RG-88 which is kind of like a Walther PPK in design, it field strips the same, has a similar safety setup and even has a similar size and look to it although it is definitely not a replica of a Walther PPK. I am impressed with the overall quality of the ROHM blank guns, material used, fit and finish is very good.

Lastly, I acquired a pre-owned Umarex CP99 CO2 Pellet Pistol from a customer of mine. It is in pretty much in new condition and is one of the Umarex guns I was missing in my collection and have been looking to add. The Umarex CP99 is a pretty good replica of the Walther P99 and uses the standard Umarex metal 8 shot rotary magazines and shares the same CO2 grip fed magazine as the CPSport. The CP99 is German made so it's not one of the lower cost Umarex pistols out there but you do get what you pay for ;)
