    I saw a NIB High Standard Bicentennial Edition 1776-1976 Revolver in a gunshop that's been long sold. I saw another NIB one up for auction in the past year and they both looked beautifully finished.
    I thought that they were completely made in the USA but I came across this High Standard website that mentions they weren't:

    http://www.histandard.info/models/revolvers/blackpowder.html

    I didn't realize how many were made, who supplied the parts and have never heard anybody mention actually shooting one.
    Has anyone else ever seen one of these models, shot one or heard how well they perform?
    The steel framed model in the gunshop was selling for $350 at the time, so I suppose most are never fired.

    There's a brass frame model listed for sale in Australia NIB for $1500 (Aussie), but there's no picture!
