    Hello,
    I'm looking for a .22 revolver for my wife. I think that she would do well with a western style single action. We are both "plinkers" and she simply can't cock her Ruger Mk III 22/45 anymore. I have that pistol for sale in the hand gun classified section.
    Thanks for reading my ad!

    How about a very nice and kinda rare Arminius 8 shot target model? Good shooter...in fact I like it so much that a decline of offer won't break my heart.

    Hello bivy53,
    the Arminius 8 shot target model was imported by F.I.E. located in Florida. They were manufactured in Germany. They aren't particularly rare and were never considered to be serious contenders by target shooters. that being said, they were a reliable "plinker" and would work for my wife. Value depends on condition, so I'm guessing top value is $125.00. New they were $195.00. I know because I bought 8 of them new in the box.

    Like I said before, denial of offer doesn't break my heart. I happen to like my arminius way more than a buck and a quarter. Only mentioned the rarity as I have the only one I have seen in person for a very long time.

    F.I.E. imported a slug of hand guns from various places around the world. They quit importing the Arminius because of changes that the ATF required in the safety mechanism. Best of luck to you.

    Yes, I'd be interested. Are you looking for a trade, cash? How much is it?

    Thanks for the photos, but you will need to tell me how much you are asking for it.
