ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

Type: Blank Revolver.
Manufacturer: ROHM (RÖHM).
Model: RG-89
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 1.45 pounds (658 grams).
Barrel: Front firing designed for attaching a flare adaptor.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Single & double action.
Ammunition Type: 9mm / .380 caliber crimped.
Ammunition Capacity: 6 rounds.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver in single action is fairly light weight with virtually no take up at all as you would expect from a revolver. The double action trigger pull is much heavier with a smooth release. Mechanically the trigger feels really solid.

Accuracy: NA.

Build Quality: The overall build quality for the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver is excellent, being German made its built to last and the fit and finish is typical German quality. There are steel parts where they need to be like in the barrel, pins, screws and reenforcing parts, the rest of the gun is generally made out of a zinc alloy otherwise know as pot metal with only the moulded grips being made out of plastic.

Realism: The ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver is not an exact replica of any given gun in production as this would make importing it into Canada even more difficult, but it is styled after a Snub Nosed type Revolver. As for looking like and working like a real gun, the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver looks and sounds as loud as a real gun, of course with the exception of the dangerous bullet coming out of the barrel!

Purchase from: The Replica Airguns Canada Store


  • German made Quality.

  • All metal gun with reenforced steel in some areas.

  • Front firing gun.

  • Large caliber makes a bigger bang.

  • Higher 6 shot capacity over RG-59.

  • Chrome (Silver) finish is very nice.

  • Also like the moulded grips on the Chrome version.

  • Comes with Flare Adaptor & Cleaning Rods.

  • Comes in a nice foam lined plastic hard shell case.

  • Right now Rohm is the only blank gun brand we can get in Canada.


  •  Double Action trigger pull is a bit heavy.

  • Have to make sure you only shot them where you will not get in trouble. Very loud!

  • Expensive due to them being harder to get and in high demand in Canada.

I think the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver especially in the Chrome (Nickel) version is one of the nicest looking ROHM Blank guns we stock. The additional size over say a ROHM RG-59 makes it feel a lot more beefy in the hand, you also get the extra 6th 9mm / .380 caliber blank with the larger cylinder of the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver. Anther bonus with the Chrome or Nickel version is that you get moulded grips that again I feel looks and fells better in the hand. Along with the ROHM RG-88, the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver is one of my Top ROHM Picks!
