    Hi friends. My friend bought an arminius revolver 8 shot capacity cal .22lr. the dealer never mentioned but upon exploring we came to discover that it also is capable of firing .22 magnum rounds. Its a fine conceal carry. besides my friend got it NIB for 22k. i wondered if anyone can shed some light on the specific model i m posting the pics

    Best Regards

    Seems like a model HW3 post 1989 as the frame says "made in Germany".It is a .22 lr as stamped
    so although it takes .22 WMR do not feed them

    There is a version of HW-3 bring produce with interchangeable cylinders for .22 lr and 22 wmr but the barrel on that is clearly stamped as 22WMR .

    The cartirege sizing rrule is you can fire a weaker through stronger .38 in 357 or a 32 long in 32 magnum not the other way around.



    As you can see it say 22 WMR on the barrel with spare cylinder .
    There are only TWO times when you can have too much ammo... When you are on fire or when you are drowning...

    @Faisji: thanks for the advice, i will be pleased to have the word reach my friends ear loud and clear regarding the weak ammo through strong barrel and not other wise. Besides according to the dealers inventory register it was brought in to his shop in 1986

    BTW i am surprised by the price as even as collector item these revolvers are not worth more than $100

    There is European site offering them for lik EUR35 to 75 NIB

    You can not compare European or American markets with Our's :D A Glock is only $50 to $60 more then
    Taurus handguns in their markets on the other hand there is a huge difference atleat about 200% more in
    our part of the world mainly because of Taxes , Import Duties and Dealer's huge margins :| .. So
    in my view 22K NIB for arminus is not much for a True Collector :)

    very warm congratulations for your buy

    please never let it go

    a .22lr revolver is probably the best buy

    @Punjatanis: Thanks bro indeed. My friend was actually confused over buying either a chinese TT or this one. I told him to buy this one. the reason i dont like russian calibers is due to there poor accuracy

    hmmm! Now this is quite unbelievable, yet I cannot say, let's hear more. Though cylinder is changed, the .22 round by no means would be able to "groove" itself out of the barrel, if barrel is for the .32, since it cannot be the other way around!!

    Above example of .22LR/Magnum is possible only, because the caliber is the same. So is it with the .45 long/.410 shot-shells combo. Eager to learn more!! Regards.
