Greetings,

A local gun dealer has for sale a .22 caliber Hi-Standard Model B, Serial Number 19084. He wants $199 and says it is on consignment as part of an estate.

The gun is not in good condition; the bluing is worn and there is a spot of corrosion on top of the barrel. He says the price reflects that it is being sold as a shooter, not a collecter. If so, that's a lot of money for a sixty-year-old shooter, IMHO.

Can you tell me what this gun is worth and a little about it? Thanks for all your answers here.

By the way, he also has a collectible Colt Woodsman .22 from the thirties in good to excellent condition in the original box for $475. Good buy?

Regards,

Ledbetter

Ledbetter, $199 would be appropriate for a High Standard Model B in 90% condition. As for the Colt Woodsman it sounds like you're describing a 1st Series version which was made from 1927-1947. At that time there was a Sport Model with a 4.5" barrel and a Target Model with a 6.675" barrel. The $475 price tag would be correct for a Sport Model in about 85% condition or the Target Model in about 95% condition. Hope this helps!
