A local gun store has a good selection of old high standards price range from 219 to 1400. I bought the hd military for 319

I'm a believer that there are only 2 values to everything no mater what any dang book says. There is what you are willing to pay, and someone is willing to pay you.

Problem was it just shoots so well I couldn't part w it then. I am operating under the assumption I can get a Ruger to shoot as well w some Vorquartzen help. I may be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time I've sold a gun and regretted it.

1001 thanks for BB valuation. Never ask a question, if you can't handle the answer.
I know what you mean. I really only use BB for conditions greater than 90%. Anything less and they really slam you and it turns into more of the local market values. And aftermarket accessories rarely add much value, you definitely don't get what you paid for out of them. Same goes for used rifles with scopes. Adding a $500 scope and $50 base and rings won't increase the value of the rifle by $550, that's for sure. I would say you could probably sell your Victor for $450-$475 though.

I have one ace in the hole - it shoots better than I could ever hope to. The guy that offered me the $550 did so only after he ran the steel plates in record time w it. Kick myself for not selling.

He was an experienced shooter but when the right gun and the right shooter meet, it's truly magic. Some combinations just go together.

Yeah, I agree w you about aftermarket accessories...yet, are not all sportsmen optimist at heart ? We keep trying all manner of new this or that to help us get to the next level - whatever that may be.

Well, at least it keeps the economy moving.

Out of all my of mine, the Victor is my favorite to shoot too. I'd say forget about selling it and just hang on to it. To me, there's nothing currently in production that looks, feels, and shoots as good as a Hamden High Standard. I bet you'll get more enjoyment out of continuing to shoot it than you would if you sold it bought something else. I like to get mine out of the safe in the evenings and just "fondle" them while I'm watching TV. Hard to explain to someone who has never experienced a Victor. I've got two Ruger Mk II Targets and I rarely give them a second look in the safe. They are the "loaners" when I take people shooting.

Your right w HS, the SW 41 has its fans & Ruger continues to impress me - I abuse a MK II w 5.5" bull barrel w 5 clips. Victor gets Tgt ammo only, which is why Rugers see more range time. I've got a Vorquartzen acc kit that needs install and then it will be a fair test vs HS Victor. (remove weight ?)

Ruger factory triggers don't help. I grew up w MK I - 6.88" - put a 1.5X w old "x" reticle on it - "Humbler" - you won't believe how much you shake. Doesn't mind bulk ammo. W a proper rest, kids have a lot fun because crosshairs are easier to use than manual sights. Great training tool.
