it's amazing what these guns go for now. I remember when you couldn't hardly give one away. I bought one off a buddy for $50 back in the 80's who was hard up for money. I about would of rather have just given him the $50 but didn't want to hurt his feelings. I was used to packing a S&W model 66 with a great trigger, I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with the 22lr Sentinel. The gun is reliable firing single action but when firing double action will get one or two misfires. I kept the gun not out of liking it but I couldn't destroy it. It has been horribly neglected and abused. It has on more then one occasion gone years between cleaning. I took the gun out when I didn't want to damage a good gun, like on canoeing or fishing trips. The only thing I ever killed with it was a squirrel, a few feet over my head, who wouldn't stop barking at me while I was wade fishing a creek, I've missed a whole lot of other critters with it. Lately I've been shooting it more and have gotten better with it and I even clean it once in a while. I can't get rid of it now my buddies initial are scratched in the bottom of the frame. He died a few years back so the gun now has value to me. If I ever get rid of it I'll give it to one of his sons. He has two sons that I haven't seen since they were small. The problem is which one to give it too, I think the next time I'm in town I'll look them up and tell them I'm an old buddy of their dads who is hard up for money and would one of them be interested in buying it for $50. The one that's willing to help gets the gun.

Well, Duhhhhh....I meant to say "it's NOT the same thing."

I can see I'm falling into the "22 trap" again. Everytime I turn around there's another one looking for a good home. Here lately I've found more guns than I have ammo.

Yours is a lot prettier than mine for sure. Nice find for sure.

General Firearms Forum

Little 22LR unit. Pretty beat up, and for sure no long range "sniper pistol", but a nice light 9 shot that I don't worry about scratching. Has been 100% reliable with all ammo and is a lot better than nothing tucked into a pocket.

With the light weight "high capacity" revolvers, I think Hi-Standard was ahead of it's time in some aspects.

Yet another nice addition, even if an order of magnitude lower cost than some of your other recent acquisitions .

Very true

I actually really enjoy low cost firearms quite a bit.

Me as well. One of my favorite wheelguns I've ever owned is a Ruger Security Six 4". Almost overbuilt, but with one of the smoothest triggers I've ever shot. To me, it felt even better than my S&W M60 Pro Series!

The HS Sentinel is good looking pistol. I have the 22 lr version for awhile in the 70s and kick myself for getting rid of it. Of course I say that about all most every gun I ever sold.
