This High Standard Trophy 107 Series is in mint condition and in its original box which is numbered to the gun. It appears not to have been fired. I has a "red bottom mag."
The box is marked: Cat. No. 9247, SUPERMATIC TROPHY 5 1/2" MILITARY MODEL. The serial number on the box matches the serial number on the gun: 2021998.
Included in the box is the warranty card, a price list, a reminder to clean your magazine for top performance, a list of factory apprved service and repair stations. Also in the box is a booklet titled, "Hunting and Shooting Sportsmanship." The booklet appears to have been published by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Inc in February 1968. The paper box has a small puncture on the top and a small scrape on the side. I will send by email additional pictures of the box top upon request.
As a bonus I am including with the sale of the Trophy an extra barrel. The extra barrel is a 7.25" fluted barrel. It is in excellent condition. The barrel will not be sold separately. Please do not ask me to give you a price for the barrel alone. If you must insist on the price of the barrel alone, it will be $1,500.00. There will be no extra charge should you buy the barrel only at my asking price.
The 107 series was made beginning 1968 and ending 1972.
The Trophy will be sold "as is" with no returns. Please ask any and all questions before offering to purchase.
In Tom Dance's book, High Standard, A Collector's Guide to the Hamden & Hartford Target Pistols," he provided the following description of the Trophy Model 107:
"The Trophy model was carried over intact to the 107 series, with no changes other than the internal modifications noted in the opening paragraphs. Still top of the line, until the Victor indtroduction, this model featured a buffed finish, gold filled lettering, and a gold plated trigger and safety. The only visible change to the Trophy was that the legend "Model 106" was now replaced with 107.
Barrel options and catalog numbers were also unchanged with the five and a half inch bull barrel as number 9247 and the seven and a quarter inch fluted model as catalog number 9248." (Dance, p. 80)
In his book, Tom Dance provided the following description of the "red bottom mag":
"The first of the military magazines used in the '60's had a red plastic extension or foot. This was affixed to the bottom of the clip and had the company name inscribed in white on the bottom. Called the "red bottom mags" these were in reality just built up standard magazines used for the first years of the military guns' production. Later on, this red bottom magazine was superseded by an all metal design." (Dance, p. 160)
