MODEL B: Original High Standard hammerless model, which looked very similar to the Hartford Arms Gun produced by the factory they had acquired. Available in either 4.75″ or 6.75″ barrel. Approximately 65,000 were made from 1932 -1942.
MODEL B-US: Exactly the same as model except marked “Property of US” on the frame. Approximately 14,000 manufactured from 1942-1943.
MODEL HB: Similar to the Model B, except it has an external hammer. Some made with and some made without safety. First made in 1940-1942. Discontinued in war years and manufactured again between 1949-1954. Approximately 25,000 were made.
MODEL GB: In 1949, High Standard began manufacturing pistols with interchangeable 4.5″ or 6.75″ barrels. Pushing a lever released the barrel for easy exchange. The GB was the first of these, and approximately 5,000 were made from 1949-1950.
