Customer Reviews for ROHM RG-88 Blank Pistol

Brand: Röhm

Type: Blank Pistol
Manufacturer: ROHM
Model: RG-88
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!

Pros:

  • 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

Cons:

  • 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.

The ROHM RG88 is Awesome!

Totally in love with this blank gun. It looks great, works perfectly, and I foresee this lasting several years hopefully decades! I purchased this for use in indie-films and movies, and so far with testing the unit is very realistic sounding and feeling. Definitely use ear protection!! The case it came in was actually black with a very nice embossed umarex germany logo. Unlike the purple case pictured online here, this black case is super tough, has lockable slide openers like you would see with other abs gun cases, and the inside foam is good. Came with all stated accessories, the user manual is nice. The RG88 came pre-oiled and wrapped in a plastic bag inside the case. Unlike other canadian sites replica airguns had the cheapest price! Shipping was fast and discreet. I might have to buy another one!!

Very nice.

Feels very nice. Great quality. Almost identical to the Walther PPK. Only issue I had was with casings getting jammed here and there. Most likely just because It’s not getting quite enough blow back pressure due to firing blanks. Overall great product.
