Welcome to TFL !

While the Double Nine was made from 1958 to 1970, your particular version (blued, w/faux ivory plastic grip) was made from 1958-65 only.

The BBGV's range from 475 to $200, depending upon the % of remaining original condition.

AFAIK, the production numbers were never made public.

The Double Nine was another of several guns made to simulate "cowboy" guns during the first western craze in the 1960's. It is basically a Hi Standard Sentinel, then a modern alloy frame double action revolver for woods carry and informal target shooting. The changes involved a fake ejector rod housing, a grip emulating single action revolvers, and a high spur hammer.

The frames were outwardly different, but the mechanism inside was the same design.
