Star Spain 9mm Model BM 9 Compact Spanish Guardia Civil 1976 Colt Officer’s ACP Ancestor PD type Blue Steel 9 Shot BM9 BM-9 Spain Echeverria  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 have served throughout the world. This particular specimen’s slide is marked with an Eagle Proof as well as the initials PN, German Landespolizei Border Patrol markings, part of a shipment that went to Israel instead and served with the Mishteret Y’Israel, the Israeli Police in Jerusalem District. The A2 Spanish Code dates its manufacture to the Year 1981, so this one served during both Intifadas in the Land of Israel. Its only alien marking is required by US Law, the importer stamp Century Arms on the left forward side of the slide. The Star BM Compact Variant went online in 1972, well ahead of competitors compact 1911s, and this BM’s U1 year code dates its manufacture to 1976. Specs are all steel construction single action semi-auto pistol chambered in 9mm Parabellum, 9mm Luger, 9x19, call it what you will, THE 9mm. John Moses Browning’s influence is evident from the photos, a descendant of his Model of 1911. The Echeverria Brothers left off Browning’s somewhat complicated Grip Safety, so the grip frame backstrap is smooth finished blue steel. The main safety engages in a well defined slot on the left side of the slide, and the main safety functions in two positions, both with the hammer back on cocked-and-locked carry, and with the hammer down in resting position. The safety lever also engages into a disassembly position midways of the slide. This pistol is not equipped with a firing pin safety, hence its stiff but crisp 6 pound vicinity trigger pull with negligible felt creep. Barrel bushing is distinctive, Tokarev style, and it anchors both the barrel securely into place and also anchors the one piece hardened steel guide rod. The rod is constructed both to ensure exceptional accuracy, and for easy disassembly and reassembly due to it housing its spring integrally, another ancestral feature that Detonics picked up on a few years later. Magazine is blue steel aftermarket, and capacity is 8 + 1 rounds of 9mm Luger. Sights are blue steel low profile combat, notched dovetailed rear and stake on steel ramp front. Weight empty is 34.2 ounces, balanced at the magazine release area of the trigger guard. Slide is serrated rear sight external extractor and grooved top. Barrel is 3 5/8 inches. Trigger is .312 white sides with blued serrated face, and hammer is matching traditional serrated medium spur .312. Measurements are 6 7/8 inches from the muzzle to the rear of the frame strut; 5 inches from the top of the rear sight to the butt edge of the grip frame; .704 inch frame thickness and .838 inch slide thickness. Grip panels are factory issue black checkered composite, and custom grips are widely available and reasonably priced. Surface detractions on this BM9 are moderate, principally disassembly markings on the slide rlease face and stud on both sides of the frame. Holster wear is minimal. We classify it as Very Good, 80 percent vicinity in our estimation; photos, however, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves.
