Hi-standard made several versions of the "Sentinel" revolver.
- Sentinel
- Sentinel Deluxe
and the Sentinel Mk-I thru Mk-IV series

Check with Numrich/ for cylinders, once you identify the model completely. Or ask a gunsmith to assist in making the ID.

Some 22LR cylinders are available but the .22 Mags are in short supply.

I like the Sentinels. Some try to say they are not of the highest quality, but I disagree. They are what they are, a good utilitarian plinker. some did come w/a .22 mag. cylinder. Even if I had the mag. cylinder I probably wouldn't use it, the biggest complaint regarding Sentinels is them "shooting loose" and the mag. loads would only increase the possibility of this.
