hi-standard double nine revolver

i inherited this revolver about 13 years ago and tucked it away, waiting for my son to get a little older . he is twelve now and ready to shoot for the first time. it is in mint shape, stainless and still in original box. it was made in hamden, conn. numbers are 966627 w-101. can anyone tell me the manufacture date and the gun rarity... i have had several people say they have never seen one before.

Double Nine

You've got an early High Standard Double Nine 9-shot revolver. Can't tell you the year offhand but your 101 identifies it as early. Value is about $200.

The finish is actually nickle plated, not stainless. My family has the same model (although a later run). The finish can be chipped and there are some cleaning solutions that can weaken the plating, although I don't remember specifics.

Two things.
The ejector is *NOT* spring loaded, and unless you make sure you push it back in, it is very easy to try to close the cylinder with it extended. Making for very nice scrathes on the finish.

While High Standards auto's are about the sweetest and most accurate 22LR production handguns that I've ever had a chance to shoot, the revolvers tend to be mediocre at best. Acceptable plinker, but not very high accuracy. Probally wouldn't use it for small game hunting or serious target work.

I also have the same revolver i received from my grandfather, model # 852915 W - 100. How do i know when it was made? Also, its double action but doesnt work when the trigger is pulled unless you pull the hammer back, it does fire, and seems very accurate! It was my great granfathers before he died and I would like to get it back to the original condition, anyone know how i could make that happened??? Thanks, im new here and new to revolvers, i dont really know much about them!!
