Seller's Description

German Rhoner SM 10 Semi Auto 8mm Starter Pistol

LSB#: 130405TW04

Make: Rhoner

Model: SM Model 10

Serial Number: 422257

Year of Manufacture: Unknown, Mid 1970s?

Caliber: 8mm

Action Type: Semi Automatic

Markings: The left side of the slide is marked “RHONER SPORTWAFFENFABRIK G.M.B.H. / autom. Kal. 8mm Mod S.M. 10 fur gas-u Platzatr. / 422257”. The grip on the left side is marked “SM” in a circle.

Barrel Length: 2 ¼”

Sights / Optics: The front sight is ramp. The rear sight is a square notch fixed to the slide. (You might ask why a starter pistol even needs sights?)

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are Black plastic. The checkering is mostly sharp with a few low spots. There are a couple light marks on the left side above the logo. There are no cracks in the grips, but there is a small chip missing in the left bottom corner on the right grip. The grips rate in about Very Good overall condition.

Type of Finish: Black Coated Alloy Frame

Finish Originality: Original

Bore Condition: The bore is plugged and there is no rifling. This is a starter pistol. There are very light spots of erosion in the bore.

Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 50% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish has been lost on the leading edges throughout the gun. The remainder is light handling marks. The screw heads are Sharp. The markings are Clear. Overall, this handgun rates in about Good condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this handgun. The slide is very difficult to pull back this may be a problem for some.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This Auction includes the original box, 9 blanks, cleaning brush, and instruction manual. The box is intact with some light distress marks on the edges. The instruction manual has been at the bottom of the box and has some light curling of the edges. The pages are intact, but the binding is very fragile. The brush has some light discoloration from a previous solvent and all the bristles appear intact. The 9 rounds of blanks come in what appears to be the original box that goes well with this package.

Our Assessment: If you need something to scare off an animal, this is a great non-lethal alternative. This starter pistol looks like a real gun, so please use caution. Personally, the original box and dated blanks make this pistol look great for a display or as a great gift.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This starter pistol can be sold in California and is classified as an antique. This handgun can be transferred as a dealer sale in California. This does not apply to out of state buyers.
