While EIG was mainly an importer of cheap Italian guns, they also imported a number of Japanese made Miroku .38 special revolvers in the 1950s and 60s. These guns were marketed to the Japanese police forces, who decided to buy S&Ws instead, and so the guns were largely exported to the US. Miroku is a quality maker, who currently make guns for Winchester, Browning, and others, and their revolvers, while not quite as good as Colts and S&Ws, are superior to guns from Charter Arms, Taurus, and many other makers. AFAIK, the only German gun EIG imported was a Rohm blank pistol that they modified into a cartridge firing gun.
