Forgotten Weapons Takes on the High Standard 10B

    “…The most tacti-cool shotgun I could find prior to 1980!” proudly cliams Ian from our beloved Forgotten Weapons. The 10B is a bullpup semi-automatic shotgun built by the High Standard company designed by a private individual police Sergeant Alfred Couch.

    Innovative features include a swiveling stock for (slightly more) ergonomic weapons manipulation and a mount which is arguably the forerunner of the picatinny flashlight. Not so innovative features include flip-up iron sights, a carry handle that gets in the way, and unreliable operation (at least with the example Ian was filming).
