High Standard Sentinel Mark IV 22 Magnum
« on: January 08, 2011, 09:13:07 am »
I was wondering if anyone owns one of these or has owned one in the past and can tell me anything about this model. I found one used in a gun store that has a 3 inch barrel that appears to be in really good condition. I think the gun store owner is asking around $400.00 which I think is too high but then again I could be wrong. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Hello Tony

I had one quite a few years ago in 22 lr.  They are an OK quality revolver.  Mine was only so so accurate.  Unless you are a serious HS collector, I think $400 is to much.  For that price you can get a new Ruger S/A with 22lr and 22 mag cylinders.  If you want a D/A, for a little more $ you can find a S&W, which is a much nicer gun.

I agree with Larry, they are OK guns nothing fancy or special and not likely to be as accurate as a Ruger or S&W. For sure I'd not put anywhere near $400 into one. In 90% condition Blue Book says it's worth $165 if blue and $185 if nickel. Personally I doubt I'd put $150 into it.

Good luck finding one for $ 150.
Blue Book is only a guide, and many times does not reflect what certain pieces are bringing in the real world.
The High Standard is one of these.
There are 2 listed on the major auction site, as we speak.
one is a 3", and the other a 4" I believe.
The 3 " is at $ 300, nice condition, not cherry.
The 4' seems to be excellent, and it is already at $ 400
Pretty typical of the prices I have been seeing for the last year or two.
If you can find one for $ 150 grab it!!

Played with one 20ish years ago; it wasnt that accurate and had horrendous muzzle blast.
Ive had High Std. 'cowboy' revolvers and they were just OK, but then they were a lot cheaper, and the Sentinal seemed to be made about the same. No comparison to the fine H.S. target auto-loaders.
IMHO, You can get a better gun for $400.

I realize you posted your question quite some time ago, but I just now read this and for many years owned a High Standard Sentinel Mark IV .22 and I sold it.  This was one of the biggest mistakes I made and I have been looking for one ever since.   They are a wonderful handgun with the stopping power of a .38.  The rear site was adjustable, but I never had to adjust it and the shot group was extremely tight. 

The only problem is I never looked forward to cleaning the weapon and only because of all the rounds.  It took a while to clean this handgun, but still I wish I had the one I sold and if you ever consider selling yours I would be interested. 

Thanks

They are a ok revolver to knock about the woods with, they are reliable, 5 gallon bucket groups at 50yds, trigger pull stiff enough to make Ralph Nader happy.
its getting harder to find certain parts for these revolvers.

Nothing to gain from a 22 Mag over a 22LR until you get over a 4" barrel, except the ability to shoot a heavier bullet if you can find the ammo.

I disagree... It may be a small increase. but in every case the Magnum lives to its name sake...:)

Ammo IS out there!!

A 22 revolver that has the stopping power of a 38? That's quite a revolver.

I'll throw out the S&W 53 shooting a 22JET...  At near 1700 fps with a 40g bullet, it works to mid 250FPE range. BEATING the 38 spl's best of about 235fpe and average of closer to 210FPE...  :o ::) ;D ;) ;) ;)

That's a "22" revolver that can best the 38 spl on paper. :)

I just know that Id want more than a 22LR in a hangun if given a choice. How much more is the question we all make for ourselves.
