Our Assessment: Hy Hunter revolvers were manufactured in Germany and imported. The .22 rimfire single actions were designed to be inexpensive plinkers, and fulfilled the role admirably. This revolver still has lots of fun left in it, and like many .22 rimfire pistols is still affordable to buy and shoot.
