Default High Standard Sentinel Mk IV

Just picked up this gun yesterday.

It was in the used section at my local gun shop, and was only 100 bucks. The gun was filthy with crud all over it. It looked to be neglected, but not abused. The lockup is good, and the barrel has good rifling.

It is 9-shot, .22 WMR, and has a 3" barrel.

Anybody familiar with these guns? What little I've read about them has been mostly positive.

The Hi Standard Sentinel series was (and is) highly under-rated. They are very well made and accurate. The double action trigger pull is often very heavy, but the single action pull is usually a dream. Yours looks sweet, it cleaned up well. Congrats on purchasing a fine .22WMR revolver. I have been looking to add a Hi Standard Sentinel Premiere to my collection for a while now.

Sweeeet! I saw a 4" 22LR in my local shop last year for $150. I wanted it bad, but had no money. It was gone in less than a week.
You did good!

I took the High Standard to the range yesterday, and ran a box of CCI Maxi-Mag 40 grain HP through it.

The gun wouldn't group well, and the bullets were keyholing.

The rifling and crown look great, and the timing is good, too. I'm gonna go back to the range and run a couple different types of ammo through it in hopes that it just doesn't like the CCI stuff.

I've heard that some guns can be pretty picky with certain types of ammo. We'll see.

Those were, in my experience, a little "chamber large" so ammo may be indeed a cure.Try some cheap brands, they may be just the thing.
