The Hi-Standard Model H-D was the heavy-barrel version of their popular .22 target pistol. Introduced in 1940, the H-D was used by the OSS to dispatch sentries more silently than their standard-issue handguns. Seeing its potential as a silenced weapon, the OSS fitted the H-D with an integral sound suppressor and issued the weapon with subsonic ammunition. With its exposed hammer, low-powered ammunition, and effective silencer, the OSS-issue H-D was the most silent automatic pistol fielded during the war.
