    high standard pistol

    I just recieved a high standard 9 shot 4" barrel model r101 from my neighbor. Would like impressions or experiences with this pistol. I think the date of manufacture is 1957. Thank you

    They're usually great guns . . I have a 4 1/2" High Standard Sharpshooter that has served me well since I got in the late 60's, but nowadays I use a 6" Beretta Neos U22

    The R-101 was part of the "Sentinel" series of rimfire DA revolvers produced by High Standard. It was first introduced in 1955 (R-100) and the R-101 variation was made between 1956 and '61. It will also be found wearing the J.C. Higgins and Western Auto names, as HS private-labeled these revolvers for both of those catalog stores.

    It's most notable features are it's screwless design (with the exception of the grip screw), the major components being held togethor with the single hammer pin, and the lack of a thumb latch to open the cylinder.

    One thing to keep in mind...the R-101 lacks a spring to retract the ejector (later variants rectified this minor oversight) and unless care is taken to make sure the the ejector is manually returned, it can scratch the aluminum frame when closing the cylinder.

    Should make a fun vintage plinker. Enjoy.

    Thank you for your input. The ejector is lightly scratched. Should I leave it alone or should I try to take them out. What is the best method that will do the least amount of damage to the gun? The gentleman that i got it from is 80+ and couldn't opperate the gun anymore do to health problems. He felt it was safer with me.

    I used to borrow a "High Standard Citation" from my mate at the club we belonged to, I loved it.
