    according to my 29th Blue book.

    Arminius was an imported German firearm. Weihrach was/is the mfg and was located in 2 locatioins. it says they started makeing guns from 1922.

    if you want to know the value, the BB doesnt give anything for that caliber. The vaues it does give are < 400 for NIB specimens. although it does menioned they did make them in 38. you may want to check out the gun auction/selling sites to see if there are any being sold/auctioned.
