Question
I have a .22 Western six shooter from Haus firearm company in L.A. California. I would like any information you have on them.
Serial #94293

Answer
Hello Scott.
  If you mean Hawes Firearms Company, your revolver was manufactured by J.P. Sauer & Sohn in Eckernforde, Germany in the 1960's to 1970's period, and imported into the US by Hawes. They are good quality shooters, but as of this date, they have not found much collectors interest. Make sure the cylinder has either .22LR or .22WMR (magnum) stamped on the cylinder. The ammo is not interchangeable. This revolver may not have the hammer block type safety, so you may need to carry an empty chamber under the hammer. Prices vary according to condition. $100-$150 is the norm.
  I hope this answers your question. Thank you for asking for me. Charles Gage

Experience

I have been at the study of firearms and their use since my first issue of Field and Stream in 1962.At that time I was completely devoted to rifles, but over the years I have experienced the thrill of the hunt with handguns, shotguns and of course rifles. I moved from Oklahoma to New Mexico in 1972 and, since, I have taken numerous game and non-game animals with all firearms (cannons excluded)including blackpowder muzzleloading rifles,shotguns and handguns. My favorite handgun for large non-game animals, such as feral hogs, is my Uberti replica of a 1847 Colt Walker. Very heavy, but accurate.

I am a 1973 high school graduate. Junior and senior year I developed a class on Wildlife Depredation and Conservation of our Rocky Mountain states. My specialty was the brown bear.
