Show off those Wheelguns





The world's only revolver that can be suppressed or at least the first.

Regardless of the sliding cylinder gizmo, that's not the only route to making a revolver less loud.

The 5.7x28 revolver seen earlier in this thread is very very loud without the can. With it it's fine to run without hearing protection.

Yes there's a cylinder gap - but on that gun the gap is a very tight 0.002" and I assure you that's not enough gap to render the suppressor ineffective. I often see revolver cylinder gaps at near or over 0.010"
I'd assume a can would be less effective with a big cylinder gap.

There's a lot of fantasy about what a suppressor will and won't do.
I often invite naysayers to a challenge, to stand without hearing protection at the gun while it's fired (easy there) and then without hearing protection.

No one has taken me up on this offer yet.

The "can't suppress a wheelgun" comment is common around dudes who have never shot a suppressed wheelgun.
 
I know I'm "jumping the gun" on this one, SORRY! I was looking for a nice little ".22 kit gun" S&W .22's are retardedly more expensive than .357's, and even Charter/ Taurus are $450+ for a .22!! I sat and thought a bit..I remembered my first revolver I shot was my aunt's snubbie 9 shot High Standard Sentinel, which I popped cans for MANY hours with, then years later bought a 4" Sentinel that was also wickedly accurate (gave to my first born 23yo now, he loves it to this day & 1000's of rounds later between us both)..Long story short, won this little gem on GB for $280 yesterday but don't have it in my grubby little paws yet... :(

Nice find! I have one of those in my safe - it's the version sold by Sears, Roebuck & Co. as the "J.C. Higgins Model 88". It's as good a shooter as the one that was one of my first revolvers.

Wow you scored! I've seen clean 2" barreled Sentinel's go for closer to $500.

Excellent shooters, my Dad had one 4" barrel when I was growing up we used to take plinking, he gave it to me and I foolishly sold it 30 years ago. Bought another one with a 6" barrel but sold it a few years back.

In the 2" model, actually not a bad carry piece with 9 rounds on tap. (but thinking prob the design would make it wise to leave the chamber under the hammer empty?)

They don't use a transfer bar, but they do block the hammer from going forward unless the trigger is to the rear.

Wow, that's a good looking piece.

It was hot today. Couldnt set the guns or ammo in the sun even for a second or they turn into friggen frying pans!

Got my sister hooked on fullsize wheelguns though, and she even shot the 12ga twice. She wants a 686+ now too. Its her favorite gun. She was getting consistent hits on accumold ground targets (five-ish inch tall tumblers) out to about 20yards or so with the double action.
Ill have to keep an eye out for a nice deluxe or pc model when i get some extra cash and pass this one onto her for cheap.
