There was a lot of handwork involved in making the old Hi-Standard pistols, I doubt if one could replicate that today and keep the price reasonable.
The newer pistols should be considered a base starting point and then get a competent gunsmith to sort it out for you. A well sorted out Hi-Standard target pistol is tough to beat.
Hi-Standard at one time offered a factory service where a well experienced gunsmith would tune the pistol for the customer before delivery at extra cost. I don't know if that service is still available, but if it is, I would take advantage of it.
I have an old Hi-Standard Victor, and in my 35 years of shooting, I still have yet to shoot an .22 pistol that is better.
