A Hi-Standard Dura-Matic 22 lr.
Pretty cool looking pistol!!

Never heard of it - never seen one before.

That round whatcha-ma-call-it dew-hicky on the bottom with the slots...
Anyone know what that's for??

I would guess it's a barrel release of some kind.
I have a High Standard, I think it's a sport King, but it has a push button in front of the trigger guard
Does it turn like the Beretta Neos barrel screw?

Lock the slide back and turn the round thingy, I bet your barrel will lift right off, then the slide will come forward and off

Geez Husk...
You must almost have one of everything!!

The one I have is from a customer who is one of Gunbrokers best friends...
He's had about 10 S&W revolvers sent to me in the S&W 32-20 caliber.

I have a picture of one - but photobucket is down right now.

OK - Photosuckit is up and working!!

He calls these a "Hand-Ejector" model of S&W.
There isn't a model name on them anywhere...
And I have to flip the cylinder out to find the serial number.
Some have only 4 digits, like "8580".
And the bottom of the grip often has a different number some 3 with digits - Why is that?

Does S&W call a lot of their guns M&P as well - even old ones like this??

Sorry for all the questions - I don't usually get jacked up about old guns - but I'm a little curious about these.
I think he got one in 44 Special too...

I wonder if it was maybe a military gun at one time?
I have an old colt army that has a 3 digit number on the butt, but it says US Army on it.
I've got an old hand ejector, (Model 1905 4th change), I'll go look after bit and see if it's got a different number on the butt

If it is .32-20 it was never a military gun, and not with that nickel finish.

S&W did not start number ID on their pistols until the 1950s.

They were Hand Ejectors first, then they were called Military and Police, during WW2 they were Victory Models.

Yours may also have the date of mfg. stamped on the frame inside the crane lockup at the front of the receiver. Many of the S&W guns just match numbered the last digits of the crane to the frame. If you open it up the side plate is probably numbered also. they did not put a number on the butt due to the presence of the lanyard swivel, which would blot the number. The loop is held in by a cross pin through the butt.

You have the old "long action" from that era and each of them were assembled and fit by hand. In other words, those old S&W revolvers are each one equal in attention to quality as a custom shop gun of today.

The parts are not interchangeable with todays S&W revolvers, except for the grips.

Those Hi-Standard pistols are sweet. My old Father-in-law had one and I just thought it was the cats meow. To bad it didn't come my way when he died.
