Welcome to the Hi Standard Information discussion forum. This forum of provided interested parties for discussing the guns, memorabilia, and history of High Standard, Hartford Arms and Equipment Co. which High Standard bought before becoming a gun manufacturer, and Fiala Arms and Equipment Co. which is distantly related to High Standard through the Hartford's designer.


PLEASE read this guidance. This is a private forum that requires no registration but does require following the following guidance if you expect a response.

I am not fond of alias, pseudonyms, handles or pen names and will probably not answer posts of people who do not use their first and last names.

There shall be NO posting of items FOR SALE, FOR TRADE, and/or WANTED on this forum. Participants who abuse this requirement will have their posts deleted and access terminated.

When inquiring about a specific gun, the full serial number since it is required for researching the answer. Serial numbers with XX's preclude accurate answers.

When inquiring about a specific serial number, please provide the series if marked, barrel length, finish, grip material and color(if plastic), and logo if present. This is some of the data I need for my research. I may ask for additional information.

Serial number research requests are limited to one serial number per post with a limit of two serial numbers per week and a maximum of four per month. Please only one serial number per thread.

I will not offer opinions of value for guns which I have not seen in person. I refer you to The Blue Book of Gun Values.
