The High Standard you see and hear about now is nothing in comparison to the early High Standard company. Same name, completely different ownership and quality. They sell decent guns, but in no way are they the works of art target 22s produced by the early High Standard.
That's a shame too. It was hard to beat those old HS target models. I've never seen any 22s that could compete with my mid 70s Victor.
I guess that's why you see some many Ruger's showing up at Bullseye Matches and other Matches now.
Ruger's arn't the same either, they've improved in the competition department.
I don't know anything about Hi Points.
