Pros: Ultra Cool retro, designed specifically for SWAT semi auto bullpup can of 12 ga. asskicking with a 4+1 (6+1 with extended tube) capacity.

Con: Chessy construction and often unreliable even with the recommended "high brass" loads.

Still it looks evil.

Buy it, especially if it has the original flashlight thingy with it. That thing has A-Team written all over it

How much?

That's worth a couple bucks to the right collector.

I can get one for around $900. Not really interested in getting it for resale. I just dig retro guns. Would go great with my Armalite 180 and Colt SP1.

I had the High standards A-10 shotgun. The flash light was messed up from the get go. It was a lot of fun to shoot. IIRC I broke even on it when I sold it. I like my Benelli SBE better.

Hmm I was thinking Hi-point, still looks ugly, save money buy a better gun.

I don't know about a 12 gauge chamber that close to your head. Maybe as a curio if you have money to burn. But I wouldn't shoot it.

I already have a Benelli M1S90, Rem 870 and Rem 11/87.

Going rate is around $600, so if you are looking at $900 I would pass on it at that price.

For that money you could get a Benelli M-1 or M-2 or maybe even find an M-4 any of which would be an Uber-Auto Combat Gun.

As a collectable / costume gun - The HS-10 rocks!

As a actual fighting shotgun - the HS-10 sucks!

High Standard is LONG out of business and getting the parts (shotgun not pistol) even from the folks who find the hard to get stuff like Gun Parts or SARCO is tough. Figure the parts will break, and then you are looking for something either not available or very expensive,

I have owned both 10-As & 10-Bs and neither was dependable enough to be more than a range toy. You WILL get a lot of comments though!

B.T.W. - I always wanted one after seeing "Thief" (the Mafia Hit Guy - (played by ex Chicago Cop Dennis Ferrina) used a High Standard 10 when getting nasty!)

The last one I had I bought for $300. Sold it the next day for $350 and a Browning .380. (15 years ago)

Used to own one. Coolness/testosterone factor high. Pain factor also high. The rotating shoulder stock is horrible. Expect major bruising on your shoulder and your face. Make an appointment with your dentist to retighten your fillings. Supposedly, the rotating stock is so that you could shoot it unsighted, with the stock held against your bicep. Do yourself a big favor: don't try that, or prepare to spend the next day or two without the use of one arm. Don't ask me how I know. I read about it –– yeah, that's the ticket.
It's a nifty collectible, but it would be far from my first choice in a fight.

900 is pretty steep and Milquetoast is right about shooting it. Put on a good cheek weld and you get a sensation like your cheek is getting ripped off. That being said I own one and it sounds like your taste in guns runs like mine, I love the black retro. I typically use mine to torture newbies.

Wow....a Bushmaster rifle!!! how is that holding up? I had one for awhile and broke the stock off and the charging handle ripped right though the reciever. I still have the lower [folding] in my spare parts box.

I say buy. but I already have a Mossberg Bullpup and I think it would be a good companion.



Maybe a fore grip would take some of the pain out of shooting it. The Mossberg seems easy on the shoulder.

I don't know if $900 is a fair price for one.......But I have had both Model 10 As and Bs, and I like the B model better. The last B worked great, and even used it in a match and got second place...shooting against Benellis. If I had not gotten layoff I'd still have it.

I worked in cop shops back then and fondled all of these. I could buy anything at dealer cost. I only got the SP1, for $180.

I think the HS supermatic is the base gun, if true I'd pick up one for spare parts..should be pretty cheap.

I bought a 10A in 1987 for $400 bucks. Functioned with high brass buck, slugs, and fed the old plastic-cased 'ACTIV' #4 bird flawlessly.

Flashlight switch was fucked and the 'DD' 3 volt light bulbs died with depressing regularity. I put a spring-loaded push-button from radio shack in the grip below the trigger guard and epoxied some wire inside the bullpup shell and and ran them up to the flashlight. Had to have separate wires that connected where the top and bottom bullpup shells fitted together. Worked pretty decent but the bulbs never lasted very long.

I hated the long mushy linkage to the original trigger back at the rear of the reciever. And drifting the pin out of a plastic receiver never sat well with me, metal being driven in and out of plastic just didn't sound too durable.

Never had any reliability issues, but I did accidentally melt a hole through the side of the stock with my soldering iron when I was soldering the wires for my rube goildberg flashlight switch. Several choice swear words were uttered that day.
