    Looks like one of those hunkajunk RG's,If thats an RG on the grips.

    The RG guns were the original "Saturday Night Special". At one time the RG-10 sold for $9.95 retail, and some places a buck cheaper, so you can guess how much they cost to make. On the plus side, quite a few cops and innocent people were saved because the bad guy's junk gun didn't fire. Fortunately, federal and state laws have eliminated the junk so that more cops are killed, which may have been one goal of the anti-gun movement.

    In those days of mail order sales, a lot were bought by less than noble members of our society and the budding anti-gun movement went berserk. GCA 68 was one result, with its "point system" on imports and a ban on mail order gun sales.

    Some of the anti-gun "scare" literature still rants about "cheap guns for sale at $9", when they are not raving about anti-aircraft missiles and H-Bombs being sold by the thousands at gun shows.

    Too old to be an RG, I think. My guess is something along the lines of the early Iver Johnson swing-out cylinder model (most were top-break).

    How many shots does the cylinder hold? And caliber - .22, .32, .38?

    A sharper picture of the grip details would go a long way to identifying the gun.

    My aunt has this same kind of gun hanging on her wall. i picked it up and the top of it read Young American double action

    here is a link from gunbroker with the same kind of gun in it.

    thats what i think yours is. The only thing throwing me off is the design on the grips is a little different.

    Nope not a top break...you have to pull the pin and remove the cylinder...so not a model one....still think it is an HandR...in 32 sw long. if no one finds it by tomorrow, I will look it up at the store when I get there.
