    Default High Standard Model 'B'

    I just aquired my late father-in-law's High Standard pistol, which he has had since somewhere around the late 30's or so. I checking the 'net, I learned these pistols were issued to some of the US troops during WWII. Is this correct? The ser# is 522**, which I think puts it in the 38-42 time range.

    I could be wrong, but I agree with Eric. That pistol may hurt someone's feelings. I've never seen a military holster for anything like that either. Nice piece though!

    I like your HI-Standard it is very collectable not so much back in the day but it is now IMO and they shoot great I still like it though you should be proud to have it.

    Can't piss you off to much if your on your knees and you take one in the back of the head.

    While .22 calbre ammo and the weapons that use it are not combat types they were/are often used for training and 'home guard' use in emergencies-the ammo is cheap and easy to use to learn the basics of shooting and can be used in both converted service weapons and types that are intended for .22 both pistols and long arms.

    PS The High Standard model B US and related types were used during and after WW2 by the US forces as a trainer and a silenced model by the OSS/CIA for special forces ops.

    I agree with lithgow... A lot of HSs model HD have ''PROPERTY OF U.S.'' stamped on the right side...Even in the old published ''HANDGUNS OF THE WORLD'' there is a photo of a U.S. helicopter crew member in 'Nam, proudly showing a HS equiped with a silencer...

    The thread starters question was. I learned these pistols were issued to some of the US troops during WWII.. And I still see no (issued) 22cal to any troops.
