Mr. Completely Now Sponsored By High Standard Firearms

As many of you know, I have been competing with High Standard pistols for many years, and with good results. High Standard has now decided to help out a few shooters using their products, and I get to be one of them! My new Techwearusa jerseys have now arrived, and I am really happy with how great they look.


Even neater than the cool jerseys is the fact that I will be getting one of the new all stainless steel High Standard pistols with which to compete. I can hardly wait to get my hands on it!

High Standard pistols have always been very good, but over the last fifty years or so the company have been in and out of financial trouble, and at times I suspect that quality control may have suffered a bit. Low quality after market magazines that would never feed reliably didn't help. The basic design, however, is outstanding, and the triggers are second to none. High Standard barrels are also extremely accurate.

Now that High Standards are being manufactured in Texas on modern CNC machines, the fit and quality is the best ever.

I consider it an honor to be shooting for such a high quality company with such a fine product!

Mike, I have a Model 103 and one of those crappy magazines. Is the company still making the old magazines? I paid $75 for a USED one with bad lips from some shyster in TX. I also need some barrel system shims. New CNC tooling sounds great, if HS is going to go back and help us antique owners out.

Hi Rivrdog,

Yes, I know that gun of yours, I shot it many years ago, in fact.

Brownells has the magazine in their catalog but it is showing out of stock right now.

Brownells # 430-000-128WB
Magazine, Slant Grip Models
Mfr Part: HSM3038M

It's around $43. Avoid ALL aftermarket High Standard magazines. I've never been able to get any of them to work, and they are often soft and bend in use.

Dimensions of the magazines are critical, but the High Standard website has a page on tuning the magazines with the dimensions.

Mr. C.
