Hi standards
 
I can't begin to tell you my love for the old hi standards 22 pistols. Have a hd military right now, same as the first pistol my dad let me shoot. In my mind there is not any pistol that is as reliable, accurate, and as easy to take apart for cleaning. A local gun store as several old hi standards, and I wish I could buy them all. I would love to hear from people that love them and there stories.

Count me in as a HUGE High Standard lover. The old ones mind you, not the Mitchells or the new Houston ones. I have amassed quite a few and I shot them all. I have 3 Supermatic Trophies and 2 Victors currently. My old man has one Victor and one Sharpshooter. I have actually been gathering up gear for a range trip this afternoon with my favorite Victor. I typically shoot about 1000 rounds a month through my High Standards. I also own two Ruger Mark II Targets, but neither of them can hold a candle to my High Standards in terms of fit, finish, accuracy, and trigger. I'm definitely a High Standard fan.

Do you prefer the supermatics over the victors. Also is the hd military the only one with the external hammer?

I actually like my Victors more. My Trophies all have barrel weights and comps, so they are mostly for show. My Victors have weights too, but I like the way the feel more. Don't know much about the HDs.

I love my old 102.

6- 3/4 bull barrel, competition model.

Bought it for 500$ a couple years ago,

you can't touch them for 1200$ today.

My High-Standards are among my favorite guns, extremely accurate.
They are getting pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Getting off track here we are talking about hi standards and our love for them. And yes I think that it is very hard to find anything that can beat them for accuracy and reliability.

Will put camera on wish list. I'm a big Victor fan - Hamden CT. Wee bit heavy w barrel weight for one handed work but it just shoots so damn straight.

Rugers take a wee bit of Vorquartzen support to,get up to speed. Some take a lot...

The only issue is finding good magazines. I personally think Victors will outshoot S&W 41 but that is outright heresy to the S&W faithful.
