    I acquired a High Standard, Double Nine, Model W-104 yesterday. The Double Nine designated her as being a Double Action Revolver, having a 9 round 22LR Cylinder. She has an aluminum frame, with the Long horn Skull stamped in the barrel, a western style hammer, and genuine Mother of Plastic White Grips. In 1962 High Standard produced 1,285,049 of these.

    You could have walked into a Sear Store and bought it as a J.C. Higgins Ranger Model 90 and later on as a Ranger De Luxe. Western Auto and Kroydon Arms also sold these Western Style Revolvers.

    A friend of mine bought it from an Officer up at Fort Bragg in 1970. Heís owned in for 42 years. Itís in great shape and Iíve actually fired it a couple of time on the range. His wife developed a hankering for a NAA Black Widow 22 Magnum and since he knew I had one sitting in the safe suggested a trade.



    Thereís a little cylinder ring and a few odd spots but other than that sheís in great shape.



    I don't carry a weapon and look for trouble, I carry one just in case trouble finds me.

    My brother in law had one of those a few years ago and it was one heck of a shooter. I don't know if he still has it or not.

    I got a good deal on this one. They're not a high dollar collectable item but this one is a shooter and I have loads of information on it. The Owner's Instruction is available on line. Not bad for a 50 Year old revolver.

    Nice revolver! High Standard revolvers seem to be steadily increasing in value...and they are quite nice. I have a Sentinel snubbie .22 and really like it. I'd definitely like to add a Double Nine to my collection one of these days.

    She's getting a range trip today. The previous owner called and we are rolling out that way. Thursday's have beome Range Trip Day. Less people and no rush.

    5:30 update. Put 100 rds through it. No problems. 100 rd through the Mosquito. No problems there either. Tacos and Burritos afterwards, yummy.
