The High Standard Supermatic pistols were amongst the best American made .22 rimfire as evidenced by the fact that they have been the only American made pistols to win gold medals in the Olympic Rapid Fire match, first in 1952 and again in 1960. My own experience with these was as a pistol club armorer many years ago when I had both an Olympic Citation and a Supermatic in my care. The Olympic Citation was made chambered for the .22 Short cartridge and featured a special barrel fitted with movable weights and a muzzle brake to minimize muzzle flip. As I recall this pistol had the older style “slant” grip which provided a greater grip angle which kept the top of the shooter’s wrist and hand in flat alignment enabling an excellent and instinctive grip. It was a pistol that not only pointed instinctively but one that remained rock steady as it was fired making the Olympic Rapid Fire match as easy as it can be made to be. The Supermatic was set up for the ISSF Standard Pistol Match with a bull barrel and regulation 1,000gram trigger pull. This one had the later Colt 1911 style grip.
