As some of you may know, I've been looking for a 22LR SNS type of pistol with no luck thanks to living in a state with melting point laws. Well, if you ask enough people enough times, sooner or later you might find what you're looking for. Or at least something close. While specifically looking for a semi-auto, I was asked Saturday if I'd consider a revolver. Having "the sickness", of course the answer was yes. Well, a friend of mine knows an old guy who's had this thing sitting new in box for at least 35 years. I had to see it. This morning, said old man came into my shop and handed me a little brown box. Inside I found a small 8-shot revolver marked "Germany" on one side of the barrel, "Cal 22L R" (yes, spaced that way) on the other side of the barrel with matching serial numbers on the bottom of the barrel and the base of the grip. It's all steel with white plastic grips with the name "GECADO" inside a diamond at the top. The fit and finish is extremely nice and shows absolutely no signs of use... Certainly very little. The only thing wrong is a minor scratch in the bluing, probably from the wire bore brush included in the box. The first thing I thought when I looked at it was that it looked just like the pistols I used for playing cowboys and indians with 40 some years ago. The next thing I thought was I gotta have this. So I do. Cleaned and inspected it this morning, fired it at lunch. This is one sweet little piece. If anyone knows anything about these or knows of a good source of info, I'm all ears. I was able to find out that it was probably made between the late 50's and the early 70's, obviously in Germany by the company of H. Weirauch and was imported into the USA by FIE. Other than that I'm pretty clueless. Thanks! P.S. Forgot to mention. It has a 2.5" barrel, is 6" long overall, is 3.5" high and is SA/DA.
