    Any High Stander (Victor) blogs out here?

    Hello, my name is Tim, and my father just gave me a High Standard (Victor) 22 cal pistol that he purchased new late 70's early 80's.
    I am having trouble with the gun jamming with Remington and Winchester ammo. I love this gun! but do not know if the issue is with the
    ammo, clip, firing pin, etc. Do I need to shoot "Match" ammo or is the gun? Any help would be appreciated.

    first we need to define "jamming" as one or more of these issues

    fail to feed
    fail to fire
    fail to extract
    fail to eject

    and as the high standards have a great reputation, my guess is that it is a cleaning and/or lubrication issue.

    The gun has not been fired in 8 yrs. Most likely to your point needs a terrific cleaning/lube job! Thanks for the input.

    High Standard pistols are known for a wide range of quality control from excellent to oh well depending on when they were made and the financial condition of the company at the time it was made. Unfortunately, I bought a brand new Victor at a time when things were not going well (unknown to me) and it was the WORST pistol I ever bought---every kind of failure and numerous fitting problems---they went out of business (for the first of many times) shortly afterward. Good luck with yours---oh, and the magazines can also be a problem---some work, some don't.
