Don't send the entire pistol but only the slide to get the replacement recoil spring.

If it were in pristine condition and here on the West Coast and for sale at a gun show, it might fetch closer to $1000. But the value in these guns is to collectors and un-used pristine,...

ML frames were made at both Hamden and East Hartford. They were military grip 107 frames, I believe, as slant grip frames were discontinued years before.

That's a shame. Is it another COVID after effect? I am a big advocate of these Clark barrels. Not only does mine shoot as well as the OEM barrel, but it transformed the look of the gun, modernizing...

If the gun is a defense weapon or a competition weapon then it makes sense to regularly replace the mag springs to assure reliable operation ALL THE TIME.

It is a very good idea to fully checkout the authenticity of a Hi Std if you are a collector. Details matter.

But if you are a shooter then all that matters is where that barrel and frame put...
