It's hard to see the Pics on my phone but I think the "catch" you're looking at is your ejector. Again, It's tough to see on the phone. I could be wrong.

The part you are asking about--the little spring loaded hook on the slide--
is the EXTRACTOR. It hooks the rim of the chambered cartridge, and when
the slide moves rearward, either manually or as a result of the gun firing,
it extracts (pulls) the casing out of the chamber.

On the top of the frame in your picture with the slide off, there is a little
nub sticking up on the left side, just to the rear of the magazine well
opening. That's the EJECTOR. As the slide (with the casing held to it by
the extractor) moves rearward, the ejector hits the rim and ejects the
casing from the gun.

Most (but by no means all) guns, regardless of action type, have some
form of extractor and ejector.

Nice old model B. Feed it standard velocity ammo and it will still be
a functional family heirloom for your grandchildren. Hypervelocity ammo
and Mini-Mags are NOT the ammo for this one.

The recoil spring in the old High Standard fixed barrel guns can be a little tricky, and the guns can be ammo sensitive and require a little magazine
tuning---but they are and will continue to be crazy accurate and a pleasure
to shoot.

Thank you for this info!! Sorry for the late response but I wanted to shoot it before I got back, and yesterday I finally got to .

All kinds of problems. For starters, I got a quick lesson in how not to hold it; when I fired it I had my thumb too high and the slide kicked back and took part of my thumb knuckle's skin w/ it (won't be holding it like that again!).

But, the first issue is the slide. I'm not sure what the thing is called, but in the picture of the gun on page one w/ the slide off it, it has the sharp nub that sticks up on the top rear of the pistol that is supposed to grab the spring loaded pin located in the slide itself (the pin is in the picture just below the pic of the gun w/ the slide off). This spring loaded pin has a channel to allow the "sharp nub" to catch it, and the pin keeps spinning in the slide so the channel can't grab the nub, which allows the slide to basically come off.

I'm guessing this may be related, but I also had issues w/ the clip jamming. When I shot it, I got the first 3 rounds off fine, but the 4th didn't fire.

There is a gunsmith here in Grand Rapids MI that says they're familiar w/ these guns. Would it be better to take it to the smith and just have it fixed, or should I figure this out myself so I know how to fix and clean it for future use or issues??

Those High Standard pistols are close to target grade, very accurate. The down side is replacement magazines are hard to find and expensive.
