A Little Nickel Beauty

As I had mentioned previously, I had a nickel plated sweety on lay away at work. I finally retrieved this gem. A High Standard model H-B. It has a 6 inch barrel and fixed sights. The grips are hard rubber. At some time in it's past it was nickel plated. This old girl is still in very good shape for a 73 year old pistol. Yes, it was made early in 1940. It came with a very nice black leather flap holster that was hand made by some one that was skilled in leather work. Well, take a look look for yourself.

My wife picked up a High Standard Field King at the fun show a couple of years back. It was made in '53, and the trigger that beauty came with (about a 2 1/2 pull) would be an expensive after market custom job today. This High Standard out-shoots my 2011 Ruger 22/45 any day of the week.
