Your Sentinel was manufactured in 1958. The value for a model in very good to excellent condition would be about $100 to $150 or more.

Mike,

Your Sentinel was manufactured in 1959. The value for a model in fair condition would be about $75 to $100.

Deb,

From the Blue Book of Gun Values:

The Sentinel revolvers begin with the R-100 design series, and continue through the R-109 design series. Later steel framed Sentinels carry no design series markings. A change of design series designation indicates design changes to the guns. The R-105 has the fewest known survivors. The design series designations and the associated catalog numbers which follow are best estimates, and may require further research. Earliest Sentinels in 1955 were in a separate serial number series from 1 through approximately 45,000. Then they were included in a serial number series common to all handguns. In 1974, they were again put in a separate serial number series with a prefix - S101 through S79946. Many of the later guns had a "V" suffix which indicates it was visually impaired, but guaranteed to work properly. High Standard private labeled the aluminum framed Sentinels for both Sears and Western Auto. A few were also provided to Col. Rex Applegate for his ARMAMEX company in Mexico.

Add 20% for extra convertible cylinder (.22 LR/.22 Mag.) on those models listed that apply.

Add $30 for box and papers unless otherwise specified.

SENTINEL - .22 S, L, or LR cal., aluminum frame, nine shot, SA or DA, swing out cylinder, 2 3/8, 3, 4, 5, or 6 in. barrel, fixed sights, return spring on ejector beginning with R-102 Series, until 1960 the 2 3/8 in. barrel model had a bobbed hammer, beginning in 1961 this changed to a standard spur hammer with no change in Cat. No.
