View Full Version : .22 Pistol ID Help

August 15, 2009, 01:40 PM
Hey guys:
First of all, thanks to everyone who has helped ID rifles for me in the past. After removing 40 rifles from my Grandfathers place, the building Super found these pistols in the closet after I left, and sent me pics. Could anyone ID them? Would they be worth anything?
Thanks for any help.

#1 looks like a low quality metal piece. Probably not worth anything, and possibly unsafe to shoot
#2 looks like a Colt. Probably worth something (At least $300 possibly a lot more).
#3 looks like a Ruger. Should be worth at least a couple hundred, possibly more.

Needs more pics.

Don't know about #1 but #2 appears to be a High Standard and #3 is a Ruger Target.

1. RG 10- no value.
2. High Standard Sentinel- nice gun.
3. Ruger auto- very nice gun.

The first one looks like an RG pistol. .22 short perhaps? Price would be about $50.
Second one looks like a High Standard Sentinel. Price would be about $200.
Last one is a Ruger MKI Target. Price would be between $200 and $250.

These prices appear to be the going-rate for persons selling them online. Stores which would want to buy them from you, then resell them for a profit, would offer you considerably less than the above prices.

If you are wondering if they are worth driving back to your grandfathers place to pick them up, I'd say yes. Especially for the Ruger and the High Standard. :) Those two are good guns and will last more than a lifetime.

I could be wrong, but I think #2 is not a High Standard Sentinel, but an inexpensive German copy made from a zinc casting. The markings should tell the story.
