Collecting

LD, as a self professed non-collector, you really do not have a good sense of what collectors prefer. Many collectors want to have representative examples of these pistols over the years of...

HOUSTON HS 10-X production by Bob Shea

The 150 per year production limit built by Shea was entirely advertising hype to create an aura of exclusiveness for these pistols. Since the total production of Houston HS target pistols over the...

screw pitch effect

Bob, I pulled a Numrich bull barrel out of my stock of parts to determine the effect of screwing the stud out from the barrel on the resulting position of the barrel plunger on one of my pistols. ...

plunger protrusion

The likely reason for the plunger sticking out too far with the Numrich barrel is the stud on the barrel is not screwed into the barrel as much as the stud on your Sport King barrel. You can measure...

option

If you want the aesthetic look of a bull barrel with iron sights, a series 103 Sharpshooter might be a fit. The rear sight is adjustable. Otherwise, it is pretty much the same as a Sport King.

sight

You would have to fabricate/modify a front sight for your barrel to allow for the pistol to shoot bullets to the point of aim. There is not a factory style front sight that will work with the lower...

Finish

The finish on the pistol was likely done after it was sold. The OP should post the serial number for lookup in the records.

rear sight

This pistol is a good example of a person removing the rear sight bridge (at least most of it) without having a clue on the proper removal process, which does not involve cutting the bridge off, most...

Victor

The typical frame crack can be easily seen with the side pulled all the way back, assuming there is not a lot of oil or crud on the rail. If the three magazines are original High Standard made, then...

The machining marks shown on the fame of your pistol are present on the frames of several of my pistols. Those “steps” do not affect the location of the breech face of the barrel, under normal...

H-D Military production year

Coltlog, the year of production you cited of 1970 is incorrect for this pistol. The serial number of this pistol, 221005, has one less digit than the serial numbers of pistols made in 1970. This...
