|The Hi-Standard Sentinel .22 with box and papers.|
I don't know at what date he acquired this gun, but the parts sheet is dated 1965. It is in excellent condition, with not a bit of rust on it. Although the "revolver expert" at the gun store claimed it needed seriously cleaning, it really wasn't that dirty. I've seen far, far worse.
It's a 9-shot .22 LR, double action revolver. Lightweight yet with a sturdy feeling, it fits the hand very well. Though I haven't shot it, I think it is gonna see many shooting sessions while in my collection.
|I love the feel in the hands.|
|The textured plastic grip has a good feel.|
|Dirty? Hardly a mess by my .22 standards.|
Among the papers was a little brochure from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). Even back then gun manufacturers were putting in little notices that people should be safe and responsible when using guns.
I can't wait to get this little guy to the range.
