    Looking on Gunbroker I see High Standard wheelguns in .22lr and .357. How is the quality? I think I read that the .357 was made by Dan Wesson for High Standard. Anyway, just curious.

    Many years ago I had a High Standard Sentinel. It was a good pistol but not a great pistol. The trigger was heavy and gritty, but then it was an inexpensive revolver.

    They are good working plain jane guns.

    The .22's can be a pain to disassemble due to they way they are pinned together instead of screws.

    On the .357's, I thought High Standard actually made early Dan Wesson's for them, until Dan Wesson got their own plant????

    I have owned three or four HS Sentinals and a couple of Double Nine's over the last 50 years.
    I didn't ever find one worth keeping.

    None were very accurate as quality handguns go.

    As BCCL noted, the .22's are a real bear to put back together after any necessary repairs.

    Some High Standard revolvers were made by Dan Wesson...

    and I find them good guns at a respectable price. Many had High Standard stamped on them but were actually early Dan Wesson guns that were well made. I have seen them in gun shops and Gunbroker.com at times.

    Way back in the day, they offered a .44 magnum known as the Crusader. Its probably a collectible now.
