Good afternoon,

Reck was a West German company that imported guns into the U.S. prior to the 1968 Gun Control Act.

Unfortunately, Reck guns are basically thought of in the same reference as a "Saturday night special" - a cheaply made handgun that is as dangerous to the person holding it, as it is to the target you are aiming at.

Value on this is going to be in the $60-$100 range, at best. These guns were made of inferior metals and quite often break. Replacement parts are often difficult to find, and the low value makes the cost of repairs not worth the effort.

I hope that this helps....
