    I have an opportunity to purchase from my dealer a High Standard Dura-Matic M101 .22 autoloading pistol. It has a 4 1/2 inch barrel, is blued, and appears to be in very good condition. I have done some research and these pistols go for around $259 - $359 it seems.

    The grips look good, the blueing is un-scratched, and the barrel appears bright and clean.

    I am just looking at it as a curio and plinker. These pistols were manufactured between 1954 and 1970, but I don't know how old this one is. It seems like a good deal. They are really neat looking guns and feel real good in the hand. The trigger is excellent. What do you folks think? Attached is a pic of what one looks like.

    High Standard autos have unusually high market values according to the reference books. The revolvers are much cheaper. I just bought a High Standard nine round .22 mag in nickel finish. Seems decent.

    Oh silly me,

    I forgot to mention the really yummy part - the dealer only wants 200 bucks for it.

    If the gun works properly, I would buy it at that price.

    Sounds somewhat high to me. I bought a SportKing M100
    NIB for $43.00.




    Oh, that was 1954. No, I don't remember what I had breakfast.:scrutiny:

    I'd be delighted to pay $200 for it; I could even go to $300.

    My first handgun was a DuraMatic that I bought new for $69.00 in 1971. Still have it and it still shoots just fine. I have put a ton of ammo thru it.
