Hey /k/, my brother just...

Hey /k/, my brother just bought a pair of High Standard Sentinel .22 revolvers from Cabela's, and we've noticed the ends of the hammer-mounted firing pins look flat. We're not sure if this is normal or if someone broken them by being a retard and dry firing.

Any of you have HS revolvers? Can you look at the firing pins and tell me if they look like this?

Here's the other one.

Any chance of finding replacement hammers if these are broken? Does anyone still work on these things?

That's how a rimfire firing pin is supposed to look.
It's not like a centerfire where it's pointed, rimfire is flat in order to hit around the rim and detonate the primer.

Thanks. Haven't owned a rimfire revolver before, have never fired one that didn't have a transfer bar.

Totally normal.
It's a rimfire firearm; they have flat faced (and sometimes rectangle flat faced, like yours) firing pins.

Go shoot it.

Just good luck finding .22

Thanks a lot. Yeah, Cabela's was all out as usual.

It was $135 out the door for both revolvers. Cabela's had bought and estate sale and just wanted to get rid of most of the stuff so they were priced very low. Apparently someone hadn't done their research because these High Standards were priced the same as Rohm shit. The Gun Library guy referred to them as "no name" revolvers.

They're very tight and seem functionally perfect, with clean bores, but a bit of surface rust. After some TLC they'll be great.

That was a square-butt Sentinel Deluxe.

Here's a Sentinel snub with a birdshead grip. This is my favourite and I'd love to buy it off my bro if he doesn't want it.
