I picked up a 1935 High Standard Model B variation 1-A pretty cheap at my LGS.


The High Standard company purchased the Hartford Arms Co. in 1932, and began selling their first automatic pistol, the Model B, in 1935 - Initially using surplus parts from the Hartford stock. It was a very fine pistol, equal to (or better than) the Colt Woodsman Sport, and would, by slow evolution, become the Supermatic Citation "Space Pistol", which would in turn dominate target shooting competitions until the advent of the modern free pistol.

Thank you. There are lots of bargains still to be got, as High Standard and Harrington & Richardson pistols are only beginning to attract collector interest. Prices up about 50% since last year.
