High Standard pump shotguns were usually four digit designations starting with 8. (8117 etc except for the K102. There are a couple of sections devoted to High Standard in the excellent reference The World's Fighting Shotguns by Thomas Swearengen. Will look through in more detail later when I have more time.

Looked through my references and the only thing I could find was in an older edition of the Blue Book. They just call it "Riot Shotgun", 18 or 20 inch barrel, police riot gun was also offered until 1975, This was a reliable weapon available with or without rifle sights. 12 ga. only on the Flite King Action.

At the last Del Mar Gunshow I saw a number of High-Standard model 10 bull pup 12G shotguns. Now those look really deadly for close-in CQB. Priced at about $600 to $700 each. Would be a great home defense unit... but not good for much else.
