They call themselves Gun Parts Incorporated now.

High Standard made some of the best pumps - and worst autos - ever. The made a few good pistols too. I had a High Standard Sharpshooter with the NON-military grip angle and the polished blue finish and walnut thumbrest grips and it would shoot at least as good as any Woodsman I ever saw for beaucoups less money.

ljkofford;
High Standard was owned by Sears Roebuck & Co. The quality of their guns was quite good. When Sears dropped them they went out of business and another company eventually bought the name. As mentioned previously, Numerich (egunparts.com) has a lot of parts and they are very good to do business with.
Hope this Helps;

Although High Standard did manufacture several firearms for sale by Sears, in my research I can find no reference at all that they were ever owned, even in part, by Sears.

That was my understanding as well. They made a whole bunch of pump police and riot shotguns back in the day that were of excellent quality and durability along with some field versions too. I own an early seventies short barreled prison riot 12 gauge that has the smoothest pump action I have ever felt. I can cycle a shell with just two fingers. Smooth as silk.

sears just owned half the patent on the model 20 pump guns. and due to the contract high standard had with sear they were not allowed to sell guns to the public under their name, only thru sears. they did have other contracts the had with law enforcement at the time, but never with the public. around 1968 sears let the contract with high standard laps and went on to other manufactures. allowing high standard to sell gun s on there own, but by this time guns sales where poor because of new gun laws and no one had ever heard of "high standard" before because their guns where sold under a different name. they soon went belly up and were bought by another company. sad way to end

And they made more than a few good pistols. Trade almost any "original" High Standard pistol for ANY woodsman all day long. HS was, and still is, by many, the "gold standard" of .22 pistols.
