Hi Standard W104 "Double Nine" w/gold plated grip frame & case hardened hammer.



Log in to see fewer ads
Has anyone ever seen one of these w/gold plated aluminum grip frame and case hardened hammer? I got it in a trade. Curious if it's an oddity/valuable and, did it come w/this holster? I've run across other pix of this model w/this holster is why I ask.

Any comments appreciated,
regards, mitch

My father traded a case of beer for one just like that in 1963.

I suspect that pistol is much more rare than the holster. That looks great

Even being rare or common. If demand for the firearm isnít there then value is just average or less.

All that being said, aren't these pistols worth about $350ish in this kind of condition? maybe a little more? I seen several versions of this w105, but none with a case-hardened hammer, and none with a gold-plated grip frame; that was a reason I posted. I thought perhaps it was a special edition of some sort. It's a strange pistol in that it has a fake ejection rod and housing presumably to make it look more "Western"... That's stranger than fiction.

Smile W-104 'Double Nine'

First let me say that is a fine lookin' HS Double Nine...the leather holster is a Hunter brand holster and they were a very standard holster for the .22 RF western style revolvers. I actually have several...nothing fancy but they do last. I used to have a Double Nine W-100 back about 6 years ago with the more common faux ivory grips... the pistol functioned well but you couldn't hit crap with it past 50'...since I came into possession of the gun in a estate buy out...I ended up trading it along with several other firearms on a HS 103 Tournament 2 barrel set and a S&W 22S. Hopefully yours is more accurate...

HS Tournament 103

SGVICTOR- sorry about that statement of being a two barrel 'set'...should have said it came with two barrel's ... both 6.5" I think...one is D/T with a mounted 2.5x Bushnell Phamtom scope the other without a scope...both barrel's shoot very accurate with a dose of CCI SV...It has the standard slant grip grip panels but wears a set of custom thumb rest grips currently that I picked up at a gun show 5yrs ago plus an extra original Hamden, CT mag. ser. # 140199x. I have the original cardboard box also...Mfg 1963 ? Thanks

I believe that is a Bucheimer holster, not a Hunter. Check the snaps.

The Bucheimers were a step above Hunters in my opinion.



Nice Revolver

Wow that is no Hunter holster. It kind of looks like one, but I see the differences. I have two and had one a long long time. I thought SG read too fast but he may be correct, as is.

FWIW...The faux ejector rod on the w series revolvers is actually a cylinder release if pressed down range direction...

Tough one to find...

A Natchez. I looked for years to find one, and finally did. Very scarce. Does anyone know how many were made?

Double 9 Convertible

G'day fellas,
just bought myself a little Double 9 Convertible, missing the 22 Mag cylinder sadly. Seems to be a 1979 model and looks great in the photos!
She won't arrive until next week though, I'll post some more pictures then.
It's the only one I've seen for sale in Australia (I don't know how many made it here) and will be a great companion to my beautiful Trophy.
Here's a couple of pics the now previous owner sent me.

I have a High Sierra convertible. I know, not the same beast. So I could be wrong with my statement here. My 2 cylinders are different as the 22LR cylinder has scallop cutouts and the 22 Magnum cylinder is solid. So it is easy to tell them apart. Based on my model it appears your gun has the 22 Magnum cylinder since it appears to be a solid cylinder. Again, I could be wrong.

Early combination Western revolvers came with two plain cylinders. The actual style cylinder seems to be largely the result of whatever the sales/marketing department wanted and varied by model and with time. The later catalogs do show the High Sierra came with one fluted and one plain cylinder however the catalogs were not always a reliable source of information.
Thank you for clarifying.
