I think this is supposed to be a screen-used radio.

Which is definitely the same model as this shot.

So you're looking for a Motorola brand MTX series radio.

After a quick search I turned up a stubby version of that antennae on Amazon. And after a quick model number search.

Motorola MTX838

Now all you gotta do is match it to a season 5 radio.

I'm not familiar enough with the show to identify Rick by seasons.

I can spot a first season because he has the hat instead of Carl. After that he cycles between clean and dirty.

I did find this. Pretty sure it's a later-season Rick.

Big edit:

I still thought it was the same radio MTX838. But after a close look, the antennae is on the wrong side. Also the white line is on the wrong knob.

And here's the back of an MTX838.

I think it's the same walkie-talkie. But the later-season radio antennae seems to have lost the ball-end antenna and had it replaced with a capped antenna. Like this.

And this antenna is the same manufacturer of the ball-end one. So they may have used this exact model for replacement.

This antenna is a Motorola NAE6483

I think if you bought the Walkie Talkie with the ball-end Antenna and this cap-end antenna. You can have a early-season and late-season Rick Radio.
Thanks for all the help dude! :)

The season1 is definitely a MTX838.

The later season. The antenna and knobs are all in the wrong position. So I do not think it is the MTX838.
However there is the possibility that he just grabbed a random radio from another character. Or the prop guys messed up. Etc.

The only way you'll know for sure is to actually look through episodes and check out the radios. That takes more time than I am frankly willing to spend. The later-season picture is from season 5 episode 9, if I remember the tag right. You could start there. Since most of the time a radio will be gripped in the hand, you'll probably want to keep your eye on the antenna/knob layout mostly.

Here is what it looks like in the later seasons. This is a non-display type radio and I'm pretty sure, based on the shape, it's a Kenwood. I used to have a radio very near this one for work.

Upon further research, I think it's a Kenwood TK-2300. I could be wrong, but the shape and lettering looks right to me. The knob profile changes a little bit when the radio is switched on.
