Star Spain 9mm Model B Colt Government Size Steel Frame 1958 Israeli Army Police VG 1 Magazine  Guns > Pistols > Star Pistols
Description: 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 with D 1 date code, and its 494000 serial number is correct for 1958 manufacture. It was procured no doubt as part of intensified armament after the 1956 War. This specimen comes to us from service with the Mishteret Y’Israel, the Israeli Civilian Police in Jerusalem District. It was on duty, then, during the 1967 and 1973 Wars and during both Intifadas. Its only alien stamping is required by US Law, PW Arms Redmond WA importer marks on the forward upper left side of its frame. 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 aftermarket; 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 factory issue composite with moderate scouring on the right panel. On this specimen, Surface detractions are extensive, principally whitening and browning on the slide and grip frame. We rate it as only Good, 60 percent vicinity by our estimate; photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is excellent mechanically; bore, 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 1958 Spanish-Israeli Star Spain 9mm Model B Pistol for only $ 269.00. Definitely C&R Eligible; not transferable to civilians non-dealers in Massachusetts.
