HG1301 Star Spain 9mm Model BS Colt Government Size Steel Frame 1974 Israeli Army Police VG Armorer Renickel, 1 Magazine / Star, Bonifacio Echeverria S.A. of Eibar, Spain quickly caught the attention of Europe, the Middle East, and even the United States with their excellent quality pistols that went into production in 1934 with the Star Model A. The Star’s all steel, close machined construction certainly was strong enough to stand the high pressures from the 38 Super Round, and it most certainly could withstand any 9mm Luger Rounds. Here is a well preserved specimen of the 9mm descendant Star Model B S. The S suffix to the model number indicates the presence of a magazine safety; that is, this pistol will not fire with the magazine removed. This Star BS comes to us from service with the Mishteret Y’Israel, the Israeli Civilian Police in Jerusalem District, and before that from service with the Israel Defense Forces. This variant was manufactured from 1957 until 1983; and from its low 1,318,000 serial number range, and from its S 1 date code, it was manufactured in 1974. This pistol came online with the Israelis after the 1973 War, probably as a result of that war; and it served during both Intifadas. Spanish proofs are on the grip frame under the left panel; its only alien stamping is required by US Law, PW Arms Redmond WA importer marks on the forward upper left side of its frame. Star only marked it with the word Spain on the frame right side at the upper trigger guard junction. Barrel and slide are 5 inch Colt Government length, blue steel with John M. Browning bushing type mechanism. Sights are stake-on half moon low profile front and matching dovetailed blue steel rear combat type. Extractor is housed completely internally to the slide, located in right rear serrated area, as the photos show. Safety setup is main safety only for cocked-and-locked carry, with no grip safety. The Star safety, however, will engage with the hammer in resting position. Frame’s mainspring housing area is integral to the frame, not removable, with checkered serrations. Magazine is blue steel factory Star, Interarms Import from the 1980s in new condition. Capacity is 9 rounds, 8 + 1, and magazines are available throughout the country. Caliber is 9mm Parabellum, 9mm Luger, 9x19, call it what you will, THE 9mm. Weight empty is 37 ounces, and weight and dimensions are very similar to the Colt 1911 Government Pistols. Grip panels are factory issue brown checkered composites. This specimen has been refinished, renickeled, by its Israeli Armorers, and residual surface brushing visible underneath the finish on the left side of the slide, with residual and post-finish wear and superficial pitting on the right side of the frame. We rate this specimen as Good, Refinish, 70 percent vicinity by our estimate; photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore shows only faint amounts of etchiness toward the muzzle in the rifling lands; otherwise, chamber, and mechanism are all bright, clean and excellent, and the trigger pull is crisp 5 pound vicinity with negligible felt creep. We’re offering this very attractive, eminently serviceable and collectable Spanish-Israeli Star Spain 9mm Model B S Pistol for only $ 289.00. $30 off if we keep the magazine; magazines are widely available for these throughout the country. Not transferable to civilians in California, District of Colombia, or Massachusetts.
