High Standard replacement barrels

Post by Virgil Kane on Thu Jan 19, 2012 2:39 pm

I have an old HS made in Hamden that shoots great. Only problem is as I get older and having eye problems I'm leaning more towards using a red dot in place of iron sights. I would hate to ruin my factory barrel by drilling and taping and was wondering if the newly manufactured HS barrels are as good in quality as the old Hamden barrels? I know that the new HS models have had their share of problems but I never heard anything about the accuracy of the new HS. Any info would be appriciated.



Thanks

I am going to assume you have a large push button model.

I have fired two Houston barrels. A Victor and a 10x. Both are very good. The 10x is mine, the Victor is not. My 10x came straight from Alan in Houston. It needed only a little cleaning of the mushroom head to fit onto different HS guns I have. The result is very good. I fit my own front sight.

Don't get the HS base rail. Have someone like Roddy fit a Weaver type base on it. Or add a hole to a LSP base to fit the holes on the barrel. The barrel is already tapped. I am not sure but it may even accept the Victor iron sight rail.

Presently, my 10x barrel is sitting on a 103 Sportking frame with a 103 Citation slide with a 107 rear sight leaf, and the 106 front sight I fit to it. The only negative is I do not like that grey finish on it. Parkerized or something. It is not an attractive barrel. Even the roll marks are not good. But looks don't shoot.

I bought an LSP barrel with a mount attached. Put the original HS 7 inch barrel away.

LSP is good. The aluminum is a good idea for knocking off some weight.

I believe Volquartzen has HS pushbutton barrels in stock with rails already attached, or separately https://www.volquartsen.com/tags/5-barrels,28-high-standard

I would also recommend the LSP barrels. I have both steel and aluminum. The aluminum was great when I was recovering from rotator cuff surgery but I like the steel version for most shooting. With the extra weight the movement is less and recovery is faster. I usually get 2-3 more x's with the steel barrel. accuracy with either one is around an inch with CCI sv, which by the way is what LSP barrels are chambered for.
