hello forum members

school me on this particular make / model. I already have a couple of .22 pistols (ruger mark II, single six). I can get a pretty decent used double 9 for $125 or so. It felt like it was alloy of some type, pretty light for revolver. My friend told me they are known for being able to rapidly fire the 9 rds, who cares

Are they good guns, unique, rare, whats the deal hi standards?? Worth having or not?

Among some of the very best inexpensive .22 revolvers out there.They haven't been made in a while, though, and parts can be problematic, though there is still some support for them. If I had the opportunity to get one at that price, I'd jump all over it, even if it meant not eating for a while.

I have a Double nine that I purchased new.It has been great fun to shoot and totally reliable all these years! If you can get it at that price....go for it and enjoy!

And another variation of the Double Nine is the "Convertible". This model features an all steel frame as well as both .22LR & .22 mag. cylinders. I have a "like new" version of this complete with original box & paperwork.

I have one of the Longhorn versions, I picked it up pretty cheap years ago. It seems to work well but the sights on mine aren't regulated well. I can't remember for sure if it was high or low but I was thinking it was high but about 6". I like the design, a roll out cylinder, western style, 9 shot that's lightweight, what's not to like? The double action is really heavy but I only shoot it SA anyways.
