Classic High Standard 9-shot .22 revolvers donated to the NRA
Fairfax, Virginia - It's never easy to make noise in the firearm industry. No matter how innovative your product may be, you need something to catch the consumer's eye. In the case of High Standard Manufacturing, they did so with color.
"They started with a lightweight aluminum frame," started NRA Museums Senior Curator Doug Wicklund. "But they wanted to make it different. So instead of coloring it black or bluish like every other gun, they decided to produce their .22 9-shot revolver in red, blue and also gold."
