I have a Model C (a semi-auto pistol- .22 short only with a 6" barrel) that my father bought in the 40s (I think). It has some blue wear on the barrel - it shoots fine. Anybody know what this pistol is worth? Is there any demand for old High Standards like this one? It is a well-made firearm.

High Standard Model C

Larry in Bend,

The Model C is a rare bird...! ! It was made from 1936 to 1942, and only ~ 4,700 were made...! ! :eek:

It was identical to the Model B in appearance, and was offered in 4 1/2" and 6 3/4" barrels.

Some typical values: ["Blue Book of Gun Values", 20th Ed.]
100% = $950. [NIB]
_98% = $795.
_95% = $625.
_90% = $375.
_80% = $275.
_70% = $230.
_60% = $200.

Add:
$100. for I-A takedown.
$250. for I-B takedown.

Hope this helps......! ! :)

Thanks for your replies

and BigMike, thanks for going to the trouble of providing the $ values. I haven't shot this pistol in 25 years but still enjoy owning it. In the late 60s I carved some walnut "target-style" grips for it and used it in informal turkey shoots, which were very common in those days in small Montana communities.
