Rohm parts are manufactured in Southeim, Germany and assembled
into guns by RC Industries in Miami, FL. John Hinkley, Jr. used a Rohm
snub nosed .22 model RG14 in his attempt to assassinate President
Reagan.
He used "Devastator" .22 caliber hollow point ammo, made to explode
on contact, by Bingham Ltd. of Norcross, GA. The slug flattened like a
dime, as it ricocheted off the bullet-proof limo, before hitting Reagan's
rib.
Hinkley was found not guilty by reason of insanity.
