    If I bought one and if someday it needed repair and/or parts, are there any gunsmiths that you know of who could fix it?

    I know this DA revolver was introduced in about 1971. I don't know how many years it was manufactured. I know High Standard discontinued operations in about 1984.

    (My other choice is an old model Charter Arms Pathfinder in .22 magnum but they're hard to find too.)

    Parts may be a bit of a problem, although the Sentinels weren't the least bit scarce in their heyday. I'd start with Gun Parts and Brownells. Gunsmithing shouldn't be a major problem: High Standards were always weird, but not so weird a competent gunsmith couldn't figure out what's what and how it all works together.

    Speaking strictly as a High Standard afficionado: I think you'd be better off with one of the main brands. The company's revolvers were adequate, but never first class firearms.

    IIRC, this is the model with teh heavy barrel, and the ejector rod shroud that was relieved on both sides to allow access to the rod. They weren't known for reliability, probably for ignition issues with the 22 mag. The older Sentinels have been good vlaues for .22 LR kit guns and casual use. I wouldn't could on availability of parts, you might look for something more current.

    Thanks. From your comments, and others, I will continue to look for my first choice and that is an old model .22 magnum Charter Arms Pathfinder. (Anybody have a 3" for sale?)
