Closest to HS Supermatic Trophy??



Log in to see fewer ads
I had an HS Supermatic Trophy back in the '80s. Sadly sold it or traded for something I just had to have. Question, which of the currently produced .22 pistols is most like the old HS? I currently have a Ruger MK III target, and a Browning Buckmark threaded.

Nothing is close to the High Standard. You can get a good used one but the pistols made now days are not similar to a H-S.

You can buy a new production pistol that is the direct lineage of the old High Standard company, and it is based on the classic design.

NEW 10-X clone of the Hi Std target pistols

The original Connecticut High Standard Company closed shop over three decades ago. The name and engineering was bought by investors and the High Standard Company was re-setup in Houston Texas in the 1990ís, I believe. That company was closed a few years back after about two decades of operation eventually making guns very equivalent to the Connecticut guns. The guy behind it, Alan Aronstein, helped his former employees set up a company that makes basically the same gun but without the Hi Std identity. The new gun has gotten good reviews and was a custom type gun (pre-order only?) . Supposedly Alan is helping them get into a production situation and they supposedly have moved back into the Houston Hi Std deserted plant.

The gun goes by the 10-X handle and is a real target pistol based on the decades of experience Alan Aronstein got from the Houston version of the Hi Std Company that he use to run. Alan was a hands on manager and was the force that brought the Texas version into the real world manufacturing of today. But struggles within the company lead to his fairly recent dismissal The result was, closely thereafter, of bankruptcy, just a few years ago.

Contact Alan at interarmstx.com for the details of the 10-X gun. If I already didnít have three Hi Std pistol, Iíd pickup one of these new clones in a heart beat.

X-Series pistols

LD, the OFM pistols are termed X-Series and are not marked 10-X.

Sorry about the confusion of names. I have not been actively following these pistol much beyond Alan's posts here. I'll try to remember that nomenclature in the future. I suppose 10-X is copyright protected or something like that (??). But the "X Series" name certainly guides your thoughts to Hi Std pistols!

Does anyone who reports here have a X Series pistol that they could review for us?

Owned a Trophy Olympic style in the past but it was a hopeless jam-o-matic; still wish I would have kept it though just to look at as it was awesome in that regard.
I consider my Scorpion and Volquartsen Masters more than close to it, downright better in every way except looks.
Would not trade my Pardini SP for all three.

I would suggest a Smith & Wesson model 41.
I own a 41 and also a couple of older High Standards.

Not a whole pistol. But I have an X Series barrel from Alan. It shoots well on a 107 frame. From the Ranson it grouped under 1" at 50yds with good ammo.
