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. Here is a well preserved specimen of their 9mm Star Model BKS, the lightweight, 4 1/4 inch barreled Commander Size. Spanish proofs on the grip frame under the left panel include date code S 1, manufactured in 1974, only the fourth year of production of a limited series that ended in 1989. 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 BKS comes to us from service with the Mishteret Y’Israel, the Israeli Civilian Police in Jerusalem District. This pistol’s acquisition was part of a buildup and re-armament after the 1973 Yom Kippur War. 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 4 1/4 inch Cold Commander length, blue steel with John M. Browning bushing type mechanism. Frame is black anodized alloy. 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 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 only 27 ounces, and weight and dimensions are very similar to the highly prized Colt Lightweight Commander 9mm Pistols of the same Vietnam era. Grip panels are smooth custom Israeli walnut, installed by the officer herself. On this specimen, Surface detractions are only moderate: extensive edge whitening, with occasional superficial brown freckling, mostly visible on the never-blued chamber area of the barrel’s outside surface visible through the slide’s ejection port and on the never-blued sides of the serrated service trigger. We rate this specimen as Very Good, 75 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 a crisp 5 pound vicinity with negligible felt creep. We’re offering this very attractive, eminently serviceable and collectable Spanish-Israeli Star Spain 9mm Model BKS Pistol for only $ 369.00. Not transferable to civilian residents of California, District of Colombia, or Massachusetts.
