Type: Blank Pistol
Materials: Full Metal
Weight: 590 g (1.3 lb)
Barrel: Front Firing, Semi-Plugged
Propulsion: Gun Powder
Trigger Action: Single and Double
Ammo Type: 9mm P.A.K.
Ammo Capacity: 7 Rounds
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the RG-88 in single action is very light with a noticeable and predictable release point. It has a medium to heavy, yet smooth double action trigger.
Build Quality: The overall build quality for the ROHM RG-88 is excellent. Being German made, it's built to last and the fit and finish is very good. There are steel parts where they need to be like in the barrel, pins, screws and reinforcing parts. The rest of the gun is generally made out of a zinc metal with only the grips being plastic.
Realism: The ROHM RG-88 is not an exact replica of any given guns in production as this would make importing them into Canada even more difficult, but it does seem to be based around a Walther PPK design. As for looking like and working like a real gun, it does this very well, with the exception of the dangerous bullet coming out of the barrel!
- German made quality, materials fit and finish is all excellent
- Almost all metal with some reinforced steel parts
- Nice light single action trigger with double action ability when needed
- Front firing with semi plugged barrel
- Come with flare adaptor and cleaning rods
- Seem to be one of the only blank guns we can get here in Canada right now
- Not actual exact replica of any specific guns in production
- Expensive due to them being harder to get and in high demand in Canada
Comments: As with pretty much all blank guns, the RG-88 is mostly for show so it all comes down to how does it look and does it go bang when it's supposed to! In both cases it gets top marks. It feels solid and the mechanical parts are tight and smooth, giving a confident feeling when in hand. If you're looking for a well-made and dependable blank pistol then you really cannot go wrong with any of the ROHM blank guns.

In this video review, I take a look at the ROHM RG-88 Semi Auto 9mm P.A.K. Pistol and the ROHM RG-59 .380 Crimped blank revolver made by ROHM in Germany. I talk about many of the features and benefits of these very well made compact blank shooters. I also take a few shots with each blank pistol and record the video results using both HD and slow motion cameras.
As with pretty much all blank guns, they are mostly for show so it all comes down to how do they look and do they go bang when they are supposed to! In both cases they get top marks. Both the RG-88 semi auto and RG-59 revolver feel solid and the mechanical parts are tight and smooth giving a confident feeling when holding them. I like the larger caliber blanks over the .22 crimped blanks as they have a bigger bang but they will set you back in the cost department a bit more as the price for 9mm P.A.K. and .380 blanks will be a lot more than .22 crimped so keep this in mind when choosing a blank gun. If you're looking for a well made and dependable blank pistol then you really can not go wrong with any of the ROHM blank guns we sell in the Canada Replica Airguns Store.
