Dura-Matic Models

The Dura-Matic pistols are a striker fired design designed and patented by O. O. Sunderland, a former designer for High Standard. The design was shopped around and High Standard became the producer of this low cost plinker after Colt decided not to produce it.. The basics of this design are also found in the Colt Cadet/Colt 22 and the Beretta U22 Neos.
