Having High Standards

Uncle FesterUncle Fester Senior MemberPosts: 1,371 Senior Member
Although I didn't luck into a price as good a Weaterby got for his, I got a decent price on a very nice (nearly perfect) High Standard complete with original paperwork. I doubt anyone ever put a box of rounds through it. #safequeen

Best of all, my wife didn't see it come into the house.

    Very nice!

    Looking through my old 1960's magazines advertised the Duramstics for $39.95.. I'll post a pic for you later if I can.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Very nice; those H.S. pistols are excellent shooters, although restricted to S.V. ammo to avoid potential slide damages.

    The things you learn.
    One of the HS guns I have my uncle shot CCI stingers through it exclusively. Don't know how many federal milk cartons I pumped through it.
    Luckily the gun is no worse for it.....but it was a bunch.
    It does only get SV now.

    From what I've heard, ammo hotter than S.V. makes the slide bump against the frame, over stressing the metal to the point of generating microscopic cracks (No matter how new the springs are). Gun will then work until the day it quits by breaking no matter what's being used since damage is already done.
    Only had a Sport King 103 for a while and used Winchester T-22 in it; had to return it to the former owner due to a paperwork issue, but enjoyed it a lot, specially its accuracy and light, crisp trigger. Replaced it with a Ruger MkIII to avoid the ammo restriction issues (It's a lot easier/cheaper to find HV ammo here) but would LOVE to own a long barrel Military HD someday.
