Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Hi Standard pistols

Any experience with these .22lr pistols?

On impulse, i just bought two, an older Model B with the recoil spring
retention button on the back of the slide and with the take down lever on the
left hand side behind the safety, and a Model GB with the take-down button
at the front of the frame and removable barrel.

Both are nice condition pistols, but the safety on the model B is iffy to say
the least. It does not engage when the pistol is out of of battery, and the switch
(lever) is loose when in battery. Pushing the switch up engages SAFE and
indeed the pistol will not fire, but the lever is loose enough to drop at the
mere hint of disturbance, thus taking the the pistol out of SAFE mode.

As yet, I have not ventured beyond basic inspection i.e. removing the slide
(very different operations one model from the other), and have not ventured
into the guts of the guns. I'm by no means a gunsmith, nor very mechanically
minded; in fact I am quite 'cack-handed' when it comes to machinery and my
stiffish, skinny little fingers are quite clumsy with tools.

So...with all that, is this something I should mess with, or just try to find a
handy (and hopefully, not too expensive) 'smith in the area?

Only ones I ever handled were suppressed OSS ones.

Rick I read Hi Standard is now based out of Houston Texas. Having grown up in the shadow of the company in Hamden and at least one of our family mics working their it was known as a quality gun company.
As kids we grew up in the middle of gun heaven. I am reading where they supplied our military during WWII plus the OSS as boon stated with weapons so that says a bit good about them.
Your weapons may be a bit old? So clean em up get em working and do some shootin.

For a while Hi-Standard knock-offs (actually, very respectable, well made copies) were manufactured by a company called Aimco, Tim. I have one of theirs N.I.B (unfired) that I bought through the Houston Gun Collectors Association (with whom I am no longer associated) maybe 20 years ago - HGCA was sponsoring them and I chose mine to be serialled HGCA-001, and for no extra had my initials (all 3 of 'em...no, not R-a-R) engraved on the frame. Very slick looking.

The rights have now been bought by another Houston Based company - I'd forgotten that. Just checked and they have a website...and an address not a million miles away in the Big ugly...and they advertise service and repairs. https://www.highstandard.com/index.php

Problem solved...especially as it seems I am on speaking terms with one of the bigger wheels in the organization.

Thanks for the reminder.

I've shot more than several and would have been proud to take any of them home. Me being the way I am, I always thought that the owners valued them much more highly than I.

Be sure to only shoot “standard velocity” never High velocity or the hot CCI

Lots of little things in a HS can’t be replaced/ found so if something is wrong, find a gunsmith before you lose that part..

My preference is the old HD Military with bull bbl

My long dead buddy The Village Idiot actual had them tweet the lips on some magazines years ago. I actually tried to get a job with them many years ago I can't remember the owners name, but remember it was a jewish guy. Real nice guy.
