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!
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.
