ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

If you haven’t already watched My Table Top Video Review for the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver than make sure to do so for the full features and specifications.

My Field Test Shooting videos for blank guns are pretty basic! I can’t test for accuracy since there is no bullet hitting a target and similarly since there is no bullet I can not test the velocity or feet per second power. SO what is there really left to test?

I guess will the blank gun I am testing fire when I pull the trigger? That’s all there is to really test. You may ask why even make a Field Test Shooting Video for a blank gun if you can’t test accuracy and power. I’ll tell you why… Because it’s just fun and it looks good on camera :)

So watch my YouTube video of me popping of some .380 caliber blanks with my ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver inside the Sea Can Airgun Shooting Range.

ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

Type: Blank Revolver.
Manufacturer: ROHM (RÖHM).
Model: RG-89
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 1.45 pounds (658 grams).
Barrel: Front firing designed for attaching a flare adaptor.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Single & double action.
Ammunition Type: 9mm / .380 caliber crimped.
Ammunition Capacity: 6 rounds.
FPS: N/A.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver in single action is fairly light weight with virtually no take up at all as you would expect from a revolver. The double action trigger pull is much heavier with a smooth release. Mechanically the trigger feels really solid.

Accuracy: NA.


Build Quality: The overall build quality for the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver is excellent, being German made its built to last and the fit and finish is typical German quality. 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 alloy otherwise know as pot metal with only the moulded grips being made out of plastic.

Realism: The ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver is not an exact replica of any given gun in production as this would make importing it into Canada even more difficult, but it is styled after a Snub Nosed type Revolver. As for looking like and working like a real gun, the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver looks and sounds as loud as a real gun, of course with the exception of the dangerous bullet coming out of the barrel!


Purchase from: The Replica Airguns Canada Store

Pros:

  • German made Quality.

  • All metal gun with reenforced steel in some areas.

  • Front firing gun.

  • Large caliber makes a bigger bang.

  • Higher 6 shot capacity over RG-59.

  • Chrome (Silver) finish is very nice.

  • Also like the moulded grips on the Chrome version.

  • Comes with Flare Adaptor & Cleaning Rods.

  • Comes in a nice foam lined plastic hard shell case.

  • Right now Rohm is the only blank gun brand we can get in Canada.

Cons:

  •  Double Action trigger pull is a bit heavy.

  • Have to make sure you only shot them where you will not get in trouble. Very loud!

  • Expensive due to them being harder to get and in high demand in Canada.

Comments:
I think the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver especially in the Chrome (Nickel) version is one of the nicest looking ROHM Blank guns we stock. The additional size over say a ROHM RG-59 makes it feel a lot more beefy in the hand, you also get the extra 6th 9mm / .380 caliber blank with the larger cylinder of the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver. Anther bonus with the Chrome or Nickel version is that you get moulded grips that again I feel looks and fells better in the hand. Along with the ROHM RG-88, the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver is one of my Top ROHM Picks!

Replica Airguns Silent Auction of Hard to Get Canada Blank Guns

1 Comment

I have some harder to get here in Canada Blank Guns that I am selling from my personal collection by way off Silent Auction. These Blank Guns are more for the Canadian collector and perhaps not so much for the first time buyer. I would recommend for the first time Blank Gun buyer that you checkout our selection off brand new ROHM Blank Guns that we sell in our Canada Replica Airguns Store so check those ROHM Blank Guns out as they are excellent German made Blank Guns in a variety of styles.

Getting back to the Blank Guns in my personal collection. They are all previously owned, most only test fired once for review. Below is a listing of the Blank Guns I am offering in this Silent Auction with what I feel is there approximate value:

Here is how the silent action system works… First of all I will only be shipping these guns within Canada to a Canadian addresses and all funds are in Canadian Funds. You will need to email me and let me know which Blank Gun or Blank Guns you are interested in bidding on and let me know what your best price is. In approximately a weeks time when I feel enough offers have come in, I will then contact the winning bidder and give them 24 hours to pay up. If they do not pay me the amount they offered within the 24 hours I will then move on to the next highest bidder.

If you are bidding on more than one gun then I will take this into consideration since collecting money and shipping product to one buyer is easier than multiple buyers so this will help you with your offer.

ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

I think this may be a record for me, I mean following up a Table Top Review with a Field Test Shooting video within a day of each other! If you have not already watched my Table Top Review for the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver than make sure to do give it a look.

Shooting Field Tests of blank guns are really pretty simple. There is no accuracy or chronograph test to consider since there is no bullet coming out of the barrel, kind of makes it hard in this case. This may even seem a little bit weird since what is there left to actually test? I guess as long as I pull the trigger and it goes "BANG" each time then we have ourselves a winner on our hands :)

I can attest that the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver was a clear winner on this day. I loaded 7 rounds into the 7 shot cylinder and then pulled the trigger 9 times. And as you can imagine the first 7 trigger pulls went "BANG" each pull while the last 2 trigger pulls went click-click as expected...

All fun aside the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver Field is a really nice quality blank revolver great for many situations like; Gun training, animal training, scaring off pests, stage or movie props or just collecting for fun.

My Favorite BB Pellet Airsoft and Blank Replica Guns

No Comments

It has been a while since I picked out some of my favorite guns, after all my favorite gun picks change on a daily basis since there are so many awesome guns out there to pick from.

This YouTube video is a little different since I pick out my favorites from a bunch of mostly replica gun categories including Steel BB, Pellet, Airsoft, Revolvers and Blank Pistols.

You may notice most of my picks happen to be blowback guns but to me airguns are all about being as realistic as possible and having blowback operation to me help to simulate the realism that much more. The exception in this video is in the pellet gun category since I decided on a pellet gun that was more about function and purpose over being any type of real replica.

Hopefully you take the time to watch my entire YouTube video since I also bring out some close runner ups but here is a list of my top picks on this day, tomorrow it could be a completely different list of guns ;)

ROHM Little Joe Belt Buckle 6mm Flobert Blank Gun Review

1 Comment

Type: Blank revolver.

Manufacturer:RÖHM.

Model:Little Joe Belt Buckle.

Materials: Mostly metal with plastic grips.

Weight: .3 pounds (134 grams).

Barrel: Front firing.

Propulsion: Gun powder.

Action: Revolver, single action only

Ammunition Type: .22 caliber crimped blanks (6mm Flobert).

Ammunition Capacity: 5 rounds.

FPS: NA.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull for the Little Joe blank revolver is single action only, you must pre-cock the hammer first to rotate advance the cylinder and ready the hammer to fire. I very short medium weight trigger pull with virtually no take-up is required to fire this tiny revolver at that point.

Accuracy: NA.

Build Quality: Even though in general blank/signal guns do utilize scaled down metals like zinc alloy (not high pressure gun steel), the ROHM line of blank pistols are made very well and many of the internal mechanical parts, pins and screws are solid steel. The fit and finish is excellent and when I tested my none belt buckle Little Joe it shot flawlessly for me. Don't expect much recoil from the small acorn .22 rounds.

Realism: The ROHM Little Joe Belt Buckle 6mm Flobert Blank Gun is not a true replica of any real steel revolver in production but it does look a bit like the North America Arms NAA22s Mini-Revolver chambered in .22 short. North America Arms even has a belt buckle version of their own!

ROHM Guns Available in the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • It’s a blank gun that fits into a belt buckle!
  • German made Quality.
  • Like the satin or stainless finish.
  • Pretty much all metal gun with some steel in a few areas.
  • Front firing revolver that will fir a flare adaptor.
  • Uses inexpensive 22 Acorn blanks (6mm Flobert)
  • Kind of rare in Canada, cool if you own one :)

Cons:

  • Hard to get the Belt Buckle version here in Canada.
  • Not sure about legalities actually wearing the belt buckle in Canada?

Comments:

I already thought the standard ROHM Little Joe Blank firing mini revolver was a really cool gun, to actually find one that fits into a belt buckle is even cooler! I wish we had these for sale in our Canada Replica Airguns Store but it's probably best we don't since I know some people will decide to wear theirs which is bad news since it's only a matter of time before a call is made and a lot of explaining is in order... The good news is we do sell the none belt buckle version of the Little Joe .22 Caliber (6mm Flobert) Mini Revolver in our Canada Replica Airgun Store along with many other ROHM German quality blank pistols so check them out for sure!

Baikal Makarov - Gletcher APS - EKOL ES 66 CO2 BB Pistol Update Video

7 Comments

More guns to show off! Good for you and me! In this update video I show you some very interesting guns indeed! As many of you are aware, the Baikal Makarov MP-654K CO2 4.5mm Steel BB pistol has been really hard to find new here in Canada, making the price of used ones escalate up into the $700+ price range for one in as new condition. Well for those looking to buy a Baikal Makarov MP-654K we have located some and have them for sale now in our Canada Replica Airguns store (Very limited supply). These are the 2013 PM new design models with the narrow grips and mags, they also have the recessed barrels and cut out extractor. We sell them in the blued version only.

Another CO2 BB pistol that has been out of stock for some time is the EKOL ES series. I reviewed the ES 55 CO2 BB Pistol a while back but until now have not been able to show off the ES 66 Series which is more browning high power looking in design. The good news is we have both the ES 55 and ES 66 CO2 4.5mm Steel BB Pistol in stock in our Canada Store. These guns are mostly metal with full size drop out metal magazines that hold the CO2 and BB's, they also shoot in both single and double action and have pretty decent power! We are now selling both the ES 55 and ES 66 series of guns in our Online Canada Store.

I've looked at several Gletcher Airguns over the last little while and finally got my hands on the Gletcher APS Blowback CO2 BB Pistol which is a replica of the Russian Stechkin Soviet Military sidearm introduced back in the 50's. It's kind of a bigger brother version of the Makarov, i was surprised at how large it actually was when i got my hands on it! The real steel version had the ability to shoot in both semi and full-auto but my Gletcher APS 4.5mm BB replica only shoots in semi auto. Again, checkout the full line of Gletcher Products in our Canada Replica Airguns Store.

Last but not least I have a neat little 22 crimped blank pistol to show everyone. What makes it unique is the fact that it fits inside a belt buckle! We do see the ROHM Little Joe 22 caliber crimped blank pistols in our online Canada Replica Airguns Store but not this belt buckle version, kind of a one off I got form my supplier, I will be keeping it ;)  Make sure to watch my ROHM Little Joe Video Review and see all the ROHM products available in our Online Store.

Are Blank Guns Dangerous?

10 Comments

One question that comes up often is the danger attached to blank gun use and the most common question I get is about the danger of shooting a blank gun at a person. Blank guns have many uses, one of which is to be used as a prop in a movie or reenactment. In this situation one may want to point and shoot a blank gun at a person to make teh scene more believable it. If the person is far enough away there is usually no cause for concern but with that said I would personally point the gun just off to one side in the event that something might come loose within the gun barrel or perhaps a fragment of something where to be fired and cause an injury to the person the gun is directed towards. With creative camera angles you shouldn't need to actually point a blank gun directly at anyone.

People also assume that because a blank gun does not actually fire a bullet that it is relatively harmless. This is not true at all, in the larger caliber blanks there is about the same amount of energy to what your would find in a real bullet, this is so the blank gun will sound about as loud as a real bullet being fired. The difference with how the energy is released in a blank round versus a real bullet is that the bullet caries most of the energy with it and when the bullet hits its intended target, the bulk of the energy is transferred to that target.

Buy ROHM  Blank Guns in Canada  -  Buy Blank Guns in the US

The energy from a blank round dissipates almost immediately after it leaves the gun barrel but the energy right at the barrel tip is very similar to that of a real bullet, especially if it has nowhere to go but directly into an object. So yes a blank gun round can be lethal at very close ranges and unfortunately several people have paid with their lives finding this out for themselves.

With this newfound information about blank gun danger, some people might say... get rid of these dangers to society! Before we head in that direction think about how many other non vital things we have in our lives that I would have to say have claimed way more lives than blank guns could even come close to: Off-road pleasure vehicles, Skydiving, Skying, Pools, Real Guns to name a few! Blank guns also serve very useful purposes like being used to signal a warning or distress, send out flares, ward off wild animals, train people on how to use a real gun, and of course dog training. I am sure the good outweighs the bad here.

That's enough politics for now, juts watch the video and see for yourself why you should not point a blank gun at anyone, especially if the person is very close in proximity to you!

ROHM (RÖHM) RG-300 and RG 3 .22 Caliber Blank Pistol Full Review

7 Comments

Type: Blank Pistols.

Manufacturer:ROHM (RÖHM).

Model:RG-300RG 3

Materials: Mostly Metal.

Weight: 1 / .75 pounds.

Barrel: Front firing semi plugged.

Propulsion: Gun powder.

Action: Double action only.

Ammunition Type:.22 Caliber Crimped.

Ammunition Capacity: 10 / 6 rounds.

FPS: N/A.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the RG-300 and RG 3 is double action only and a bit on the heavy side so you will need to hold the gun firm and apply an even and long pull to fire the these blank guns, after a few shots you get the hang of it. If you do not pull the trigger the entire way back until the hammer releases, the shot will not fire but the blank will index and move onto the next round so you may have an unused blank when you pull out the magazine.

Accuracy: NA.

Build Quality: The overall build quality for the ROHM RG-300 and RG 3 blank pistols is very good, being German made they are built to last and the fit and finish is very good. The only real plastic would be the grips on both models which is to be expected. Both guns worked perfectly for me during my testing and with the exception of a bit of a heavy DOA trigger pull since the trigger first has to index the magazine and then fire the round.

Realism: The ROHM RG-300 and ROHM RG 3 are not exact replicas of any given guns in production as this would make importing them into Canada even more difficult. The ROHM RG-300 does however share some similarities in looks to that of a Sig Sauer but in a much smaller form factor !

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.
  • Very safe double action triggers, will not accidentally misfire on you.
  • Both are front firing.
  • Come with flare adaptors and cleaning rods.
  • Available for import into Canada.

Cons:

  • Not actual exact replicas of any specific guns in production.
  • Double action trigger pull is a bit tough and takes some getting used to.
  • Expensive due to them being harder to get and in high demand in Canada.

Comments:

One nice point with the .22 caliber blank shooters is the lower cost to shoot them, .22 caliber crimped blanks work out to be much cheaper than the 8mm &  9mm P.A.K. or .380 crimped blanks. Sure they are a bit quieter but louder than you might think, especially when coming out of a short barrel. Another selling point is how compact both of these guns really are which makes them easy to pack around if you want to take one with you on a hike or outing as a deterrent for any wildlife that may get a bit too close to you. The RG-300 and RG 3 are two very nice additions to the ROHM blank guns we sell in the Canada Replica Airguns Store.

Sheridan Silver Streak .20 Caliber Pellet Rifle - ROHM RG300 & RTS MOD. 1966 .22 Caliber Blank Gun Preview Video

7 Comments

I like to show off some of my acquisitions from time to time even if they are guns I don't necessarily have for sale, I am a collector and some items are not always common enough or even popular enough to keep in our Replica Airguns Store.

Today I show you two blank guns I picked up from a recent gun show I attended in Chilliwack BC. There where not many blank guns at the show, the two I found may have been the only blank guns there, at least that I saw? The ROHM RG300 .22 Caliber Blank Pistol and RST MOD. 1966 .22 Caliber Blank Revolver I picked up for a pretty good price, at least in my mind, $55 for the ROHM and $20 for the RTS. A nice addition to my blank gun collection!

I have been contemplating between a PCP (Pre Charged Pneumatic) or a really good Multi-pump air rifle for pest control around my house, I have been using a spring piston rifle but the combination of my limited skills with spring piston rifles and the fact that most pests in my area stay a good 50+ yards back, means I need an airgun with pin-point accuracy. At the end of the day I decided on the Sheridan Silver Streak because it was a bit more affordable than a PCP air rifle and also the Sheridan is such a classic air rifle but still with the right amount of power and accuracy to get the job done.

Checkout some more photos...

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

9 Comments

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

15 Comments

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 ;)

ROHM Le Petit RG-56 and Little Joe 6mm - 22 Caliber Blank Revolver Review

9 Comments

Type: Blank revolvers.

Manufacturer:RÖHM.

Model:Le Petit RG 56 & Little Joe.

Materials: Mostly metal with plastic grips.

Weight: 472/134 grams.

Barrel: Front firing.

Propulsion: Gun powder.

Action: Revolver, single & double action/Single action only

Ammunition Type: .22 caliber crimped blanks (6mm Flobert).

Ammunition Capacity: 7/5 rounds.

FPS: NA.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull for both ROHM Le Petit and Little Joe blank revolvers in single action is nice and light. The action for both blank revolvers is very solid so cocking both guns requires a firm grip, the ROHM Le Petit also allows for double action shots and while it takes some force, the mechanics are very smooth and you can really feel the German quality in the hammer and trigger.

Accuracy: NA.

Build Quality: Even though both revolvers are made as blank/signal guns and do utilize scaled down metals (not high pressure gun steel), they are made very well and many of the internal mechanical parts, pins and screws are solid steel. The fit and finish is excellent and both guns worked flawlessly for me in my testing.

Realism: Both ROHM blank Revolvers are derivatives of similar real guns (Freedom Arms and RG 22) but again have been made from the ground up to be blank guns and can not be converted in any way shape or form to fire live ammo. The quality and feel is very believable, they also both fire out the front of the barrels and can shoot 15mm flares with the required flare adaptors attached.

Available in the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Sold metal construction.
  • Excellent fit and finish.
  • Made in Germany.
  • Shoot lesser expensive .22 caliber crimped blanks.
  • Can also shoot 15mm flares with appropriate flare adaptor attached.
  • Come in gift box with cleaning rod and manuals (Le Petit RG-56 also comes with flare adaptor)

Cons:

  • Real wood grips would have been a nice touch but could be added later.
  • Little Joe does not come with a flare adaptor.

Comments:

We now have some blank guns that seem to be somewhat available in Canada... At least for now! And even though some of the other blank guns I was selling may have been more to the liking of the folks that where looking for a semi auto styled blank gun, the good news is both of these guns are very high quality and revolvers in general are very dependable. I also like the fact that both of the ROHM Blank Revolvers are fairly compact and so if you want to take them with you out on a hike or in the back country, they will not take up much room or add too much weight, but are still ready if required to scare off something bigger or more dangerous than you!
