The Supermatic Trophy was my first handgun, and what a great gun it was. I regret trading it, but who knows...maybe someday I'll get another...

Anyhoo, High Standard is still in business...the website is http://www.highstandard.com/ and the company history is available at http://www.highstandard.com/history.html. They're still manufacturing the classic .22 pistols, but have also branched out and are making 1911s and AR-15s. From what I've heard, the quality is still top notch.

Happy shooting!

Just wondering why they list the AMT Auto Mag on their site. Always wanted the 45 Backup but heard complaints about their quality. Is High Standard making them now?

High Standard is in business by name.
The 22lr's they produce are no where near the quality of the ones that made the company great.

Try:

http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...splay.php?f=49

and:

http://www.histandard.info/

for more info on the old and new Hi (High) Standard company. If you join the second site and submit your S/N John will provide the build and ship date for you.

I picked up a Victor a year ago from a consignment estate sale. It's the gun I wanted 30 years ago but couldn't afford.

Remember - shoot standard velocity ammo only in it. And if you don't know the history it's a good idea to replace the recoil spring. The second site listed has all the info you need or want.

Here's three of mine.
