The pink or gold ones are expensive.

Blue ones in 98% condition are $175.00 in my blue Book.

The frame was anodized in the pink and gold versions.

Question: where did the "police special" title come from? This is a common High Standard Sentinel, 22 long rifle double action sporting or plinking handgun..As stated by another poster, these go for around $150 to $200 and are not very rare. They used to go for about $35 at the shows but that is a while back.

A nice one, almost new in the box is probably in the high end of the price range above. I saw one listed on Gunbroker at $375 but there were no bids.

I have on just like it, unfired, and I got it last year for $145. Nice gun for taking on a hike in the woods, light weight, fairly accurate and nothing you'd cry over if it gets a scratch on the aluminum frame.

Blue book says Turquoise Blue, gold, or pink anodized are like 475 or so.

Others are around 175 as stated here.

They do call them police guns. If you have the box, what does the label say?

I appraised the identical twin to this one this afternoon, new in original box...no "police" stuff on the box. It is a 22. It books out at around $200-300 depending on "new", location and the ability to find someone who'll pay what you ask.

Can find no mention of Natchez in any of my references..they did make quite a few "special" variations of the Sentinel, even in colors.....way ahead of their time. I haven't seen a Sentinel yet that should book out higher than 200 or 250 unless it had some special provenance or history. There were some late ones made by Dan Wesson in larger calibers but that is another story.

Skeeter (Charles A.)Skelton, late hangun editor of Shooting Times, said once that the grip frame was the most user friendly or comfortable out-of-the-box of any current handgun (twenty five years ago) and even suggested it as the basis for his "ideal" dream handgun (the grip, nothing else).

Fairly cheap, utility guns. Not overly durable or strong. Aluminum frames. Internals kind of fragile. Quite a few I've seen don't continue to work double action for very long.
