Gun Report

High Standard G-Man .45 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

High Standard’s G-Man was a basic, vanilla 1911 with Teflon finish and a trick hammer. One photo (below) shows the gun cocked and the hammer shoved forward to “safe” position. Although we didn’t like the SFS system, we found little wrong with this accurate gun, but it needed deburring. The other guns had more features for essentially the same cost, in our view.

We liked the sight picture both day and night, but not the sharp edges. Is that hammer cocked? Yup. Pressing the ambi safety pops it back to fully cocked position.
