An older gentleman I know quite well showed me a piece of history yesterday, A Hi Standard Model C .22 short semi-auto pistol. I'd never seen or heard of one, but a search showed them to be made around 1933, and one site said only 4700 were made. This one is in pretty good shape. There is no rust, dings, or scarring, and the blueing is moderately worn. I'm interested in any other trivia surrounding this gun, and roughly what he could reasonably expect from a collector, were he to sell it. Thanks folks!
