Several years ago I acquired a High Standard Sentinel MK III that is represented in the two photos. I have shot this Dan Wesson Model 15 quite a bit since purchase/horse trade. In the past on this fine forum, the history of the High Standard connection to Dan Wesson in the early years was debated. It seemed, at the time, some DW scholars were of the opinion that High Standard had built the early Models (11 & 12) for the, just started Dan Wesson Company, in or around 1969. Then later, after getting up and running, Dan Wesson  built his own and in the 74/76 time frame, Dan Wesson used his Model 15 with High Standard markings in a contract deal with HS. Was this resolved yet? In one of the many old magazine articles posted on this forum one author supported the HS connection to the Models 11 & 12. I have tried researching the posts on this forum concerning this subject matter and I see a debate unresolved yet. I would appreciate one of my friends here jumping in and getting me straight on the DW/HS relationship. As most of you are aware, I have a Model 11 that I am kinda partial to and finding out if HS built it would be interesting. This Model 15 here, marked as the Sentinel MK III, was used quite a bit in the past 12-months. Accurate, oh yeah, and typically stout with the well known short hammer drop that Dan Wesson owners are aware of. I hope you enjoy the pictures of this High Standard Sentinel MK III.

David, have a look at this thread; https://www.danwessonforum.com/forum/dan-wesson-history/dan-wesson-high-standard/

That is an old thread that was started when we were collectively learning about the HS connection to DW. So page 1 has a lot of initial speculation, but page 2 is where most of the answers come in. smile

Thanks for posting pics of your MK III, it looks great!cool

Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.

Long Time since we saw some of those screen names too!

Maybe make that one a sticky Steve?

Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

If a man designed it, and a man built it, then a man can fix it.
