This semi-automatic target pistol is extremely rare, with only about 7,800 units ever produced, according to experts. Resembling the well-known .22 Caliber Hi-Standard Model D, this was the only centerfire pistol brought into production by the company. Unfortunately, due to a lack of proper advertising, in 1950, after only three years, this model was deemed a commercial failure, and production was halted. This pistol was known to have excellent accuracy with its 7-1/2 inch sight radius. Its front sight has a serrated rear slop giving it a black silhouette in any light, and its rear sight has a non-reflecting velvet finish. This gun is nicely finished in two-tone blue, glossy on the sides of the frame and barrel, and dull, or non-reflecting, finish on top and rear surfaces, also on the front of the grip. Weighing 2lbs 7oz and its magazine has a 6-round capacity.
You are considering our example of the High Standard Model G 380 Semi-Automatic Pistol. It’s in excellent shape for its age. The metalwork and finish are conservatively above 75%, with typical wear on the high points and grip frame. This pistol comes with the original set of grip panels which are not installed due to damage on the right-hand panel; this began as a crack and was drilled so as to prevent the crack from worsening. The installed grip panels are in great shape, with a couple of minor scratches and one longer scratch on the right panel. The bore is in good shape with strong rifling; however, there is typical darkness along the lands, consistent with most handguns of this age. One thing to note is the crack on the rear face of the firing pin, this does not affect the functionality of the pistol. The issues above are highly detailed in the photos, please check them out for a closer look.
