Fri Jun 16, 2017 09:20

I have a High Standard marked 10-X on left frame above trigger. Matte finish, blackish. Grips are black,5.5" barrel, one mag, with vent rib. serial number SH26660 with last 2-3 numbers slightly worn down. 22LR with trigger logo on left side of barrel and address on right side. box with matching serial number claims model #9234 but no target, only schematic for Trophy/Citation. Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

              This is why I am phasing out my participation. I don't get the data that may be helpful to my research. One great unknown is that fro most guns we do not know what the potential population is in the... more

                  Hello John, Obviously it is back from Canada. Would that perhaps be from the collection of the late Ken Seminatore? His ex wife was going to sell his collection based on e-mails early this year. John ... more

      John, if you remove the left grip panel, there should be some initials stamped on the frame. Would you let us know what those letters are? They are the initials of the gunsmith who assembled the... more
