I have a 22 caliber revolver manufactured by Kimel Industries in a western style with a long barrel; can anyone tell me about this handgun?
IIRC, they made a gun called the Western Six, which was made primarily of aluminum and sintered steel. Sold at a low price point, they were not known for either quality or durability. My next door neighbor bought one in the early '90s in a pawn shop for $45. He had a hard time removing the spent shells from the cylinder. The timing of the cylinder was very poor also; if you were standing to the side of the gun while it was fired, you would be splattered with shaved lead.
Based on my experience, I would recommend that you make it a wall hanger. I have not checked any collector sources, but I have never seen a gun of sintered construction become a collector's item.
