You know that cheap D/A 22 everyone is looking for?

Well, "they" don't really make them anymore, but back in the day, both Harrington and Richardson, and High Standard (and a couple other companies) did make them. No, they weren't Smith & Wesson or Colt, but they did the job they were made for, and did them pretty well.

I found this one at the LGS over the weekend, and for the price (Less than $175.00) I couldn't pass it up. Other than a slight turn line on the cylinder, and a drag line where the cylinder pin rubbed the recoil shield it looks pretty much like new.

It's a High Standard Sentinel "Deluxe", R-106 from the late 60's or early 70's as best I can tell. The frame is aluminum. The grips are plastic and surprisingly comfortable. The hammer is case hardened. The rear sight is drift adjustable if you want to do that. Personally I just think of them as fixed and use Kentucky windage. It holds nine round of 22 LR. I remember back in the day they were thought of as good shooters. Not a K-22, but acceptable for a "kit gun."





Hope to get it out and shoot it a few times anyway today.

I'm always on the lookout for DA/SA .22 revolvers at a good price,,,
Unless I pay something outrageous I know I can always get my money back.

You got a nice deal on that one my friend.

Mines no where near as purty, but I only got $20 bucks in it so I can't complain.
A little worn but works fine and is very accurate.

We got an almost identical revolver (more finish wear though) for my grandfather a few years ago. My grandfather, for many years, was opposed to handguns but had slowly come around to the point of wanting a revolver (he's still not comfortable with a semi-auto). Now, he finds the High Standard to be the most frequently used gun he owns and prefers it for dispatching pests around his farm (opossums, skunks, raccoons, etc.).
