    Have a Hawes Western six shooter JP sauer & son .22 revolver. Looks like a larger caliber gun with 22 inserts in barrel and cylinder .The firing pin about half in lower to strike a 22 shell.Odd looking gun does not look like a regular 22 heritage or small frame hawes.and nneed a ejecter rod any advise would be great.

    Dave, I ordered one of those revolvers from a magazine ad. back around 1960. Mine was made by Sauer but it wasn't imported by Hawes. The cost was $27. As you have probably discovered, the gun is mostly pot metal. I shot mine a good bit, but worked the action a great deal more (perfecting my quick draw). In less than a month the gun was completely worn out. Nothing worked. Everything wiggled. I tell you this so you will not do as I did. If you just shoot the gun, and cock it gently, and don't play cowboy with it, it will probably last awhile. Have fun.

    I have had the JP Sauer SA revolver in .44 mag and it was a really solid well made revolver, just about 40% larger than a Colt SAA. (Had 2 over the years.)
    I guess some of the .22's were not so well made.....

    Hold up, there were some small-frame (3/4 size?) .22LR revolvers, and also some full-size revolvers with chamber sleeves for .22LR.

    Is yours steel or alloy, best you can tell?
