The High Standard FLITE KING shotgun series was manufactured in the sixties and early seventies. But High Standard's quality control began to slip and later models (built by 3rd party manufacturers) began to suffer from parts and metallurgy failures in the field. As a result, High Standard's shotguns were unable to compete with Remington, Winchester, Ithaca and Mossberg and they stopped all together in the mid 1970s. There were a variety of models and model numbers, indicating finish, rifled sights, slug barrels, field version, riot version and either higher end or economy versions. Most High Standard shotguns look very similar despite their different model numbers. Though marked with the High Standard name, many of these shotguns were built by third party manufacturers, both domestic (like Savage or Stevens) or foreign, on license.

The K-1200 Shotgun was the most commonly seen in movies and television. It was introduced in May 1966. Catalog #8104 was the Riot Standard model with riot sights and a 20" barrel. Catalog #8111 was the Riot Standard model with riot sights and an 18 1/8th inch barrel. Catalog #8113 was the Riot Deluxe model with rifle sights and an 18 1/8th inch barrel. Catalog #8116 & #8117 were the Brush deluxe versions (field guns) but with 20" barrels. The other Catalog Numbers #8115-8165 were long barreled hunting and trap/skeet field guns with various features. The K-120 was the same shotgun as the K-1200 (but built by a different subcontractor) and was introduced in 1969. All of the sub-models (and Catalog Numbers) are the same, and they are visually impossible to tell apart without close inspection.
