Seeking High Standard gunsmith



Log in to see fewer ads
I am a long time High Standard collector with a particular interest in 102-104 series guns. I am seeking an experienced gunsmith in the area of eastern Massachusetts to assist with my occasional gunsmithing / maintenance needs. Can be a professional or fellow hobbyist with appropriate experience. Does anyone have an recommendations? Thank you in advance.

+1 to the OFM Corp guys in Houston, TX. They did nice work on my Hamden Victor. Would use them again!

If you want a gunsmith close to you then search out a gunsmithing organization and ask for recommendation of local gunsmiths. You also could contact the education oriented American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI) who graduates new gunsmiths daily. They may be able to offer the name of a local gunsmith who may even work out of his home.

BUT......Getting a gunsmith that is no more than a parts changer is not a good idea at all...especially if it is Hi Std guns you want worked on. AGI teaches problem solving and one of their graduates may be a better choice. The Texas firm of OFM Corp is made up of former High Standard Company of Houston Texas employees who, until recently, made the latest versions of the Hi Std guns. These gunsmith worked at assembling new guns and repairing any Hi Std that came through the door. Today they do a bit more than that now under their own banner (TX Hi Std is now bankrupt and in court ordered receivership, as I understand it). For Hi Std repairs OFM Corp comes highly recommended. Alan Aronstein of interarmstx.com, the former head of TX Hi Std in Texas, also repairs Hi Std guns. He trained the OFM Corp gunsmiths over a multiple decades period. Bob Shea (originally a gunsmith for the Connecticut Hi Std Co. and one of the 10-X gun assemblers) also trained them. Alan, too, comes highly recommended.
