Yeah I seen the same book...i also seen the same gun sale for $249 on a online auction..that's why I'm confused..I guess it's just worth more to each individual..personal preference maybe?

Yeah, you've done your research and seen what the book say's and have seen what they sell for at an auction site. If you want it for less than $150 start dickering.

If it works and fires, how can anyone get hurt (pricewise) on a $150 gun, especially a .22 revolver? Stay out of the bar 2 nights (one good night for me!) and it's paid for.

If you haven't shot it yet be sure to wear eye protection. All the corrosion or lead deposits visible in the photographs might indicate that the weapon is out of time. That is when the cylinder does not perfectly index in alignment with the barrel when the weapon is fired. This can cause lead to be shaved off of each projectile as it enters the barrel from the cylinder. Cause could be that the cylinder is not locking up correctly or the crane (the piece that attaches the cylinder to the gun) is bent.You can check the timing by sliding a .22 diameter rod down the barrel with the unloaded cylinder closed and the gun cocked. Check all 9 chambers. If the rod hangs up on the edge of any of the cylinder chambers you have a problem that needs to be resolved by a good gunsmith. Also, weak spring, worn parts and dirt can all affect cylinder lock up and timing. To check lock up make sure the gun is empty and cock the weapon then try to move the cylinder. If it moves at all the timing is suspect. If you hear an audible "click" when you do this the gun is not locking up. If it does lock up but still moves, suspect worn parts.

Great timing truckeedan..lol wish I woulda known all that good stuff before I purchased the gun..I'm gonna definitely do everything you suggested and go from there..he said it fired just fine 15 years ago..lol..if I have to invest too much more in this handgun I'm prob just gonna let it collect dust for a while (after I get tired of the lead shavings in my face)

If it does have timing issues, it's a simple fairly cheap fix. Had it done to a few myself. Even if it costs you $50-$100 to get it timed, it's still half the price of any new .22 revolver. Hope it shoots well for you. Should be a ton of fun.
