Default High Standard Supermatic Value

I am looking at a High standard Supermatic S101 Small button pistol and trying to get an idea of value. It may be unfired but I have not been able to inspect it. One grip is cracked/broken. In the box. Any help on value would be appreciated.
TIA
Robbie

I have several. you can get wood replacement grips that look better anyway. I am not a collector and it's not a 41. $725 comes to mind. Those are very accurate. I like it. They are not picky on ammo and I bought 3 Triple K magazines for spares that work perfect. I like the take down. East to clean. It is a target gun out of the box. Are those just handling marks on the finish?

One of those 2 smaller boxes probably contains a spare magazine and the other barrel weights and a muzzle brake. Those extra parts are worth close to $200.

If everything’s there and as new, I’d grab it for $700. These guns were intended for standard velocity ammunition. If they’re fed a stead diet of HV ammo, a frame rail can crack. Inspect it carefully.

If it is a Hamden gun, which is early, I would think $ 700 to 800 would be the ballpark. Later gun, not so much.

The frame color and lack of markings.
Doesn't seem to bother anyone else so far though.

I think the rear sight is a Davis too.
I have a flight king with that style sight.

I second, third and fourth this advice. I've been buying HIgh Standard .22 target pistols since the 1990s, and my brother and I have at least 2 dozen High Standard .22 pistols between us. With any HIgh Standard .22 pistol, absolutely make a visual and [B][U]tactile[B][U]examination of the entire top of the magazine well and the rails in its vicinity. Drag a thumbnail along the rails to see if you can feel a crack. I learned about this the hard way. I bought a Victor that I didn't examine well enough and it turned out to have a seriously cracked frame. I only have myself to blame. I was lucky in that I was able to get a replacement frame from the Houston plant before it closed.
