Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ROHM RG-300 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 it, 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.
Build Quality: The overall build quality for the ROHM RG-300 is very good, being German made it's built to last and the fit and finish is very good. The only real plastic would be the grip, which is to be expected. The gun 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 is not an exact replicas of any given gun in production as this would make importing it into Canada even more difficult. It does however share some similarities in looks to that of a Sig Sauer but in a much smaller form factor!
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 this gun really is, which makes it easy to pack 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 is a very nice additions to the ROHM's blank gun line.
