Star Spain 9mm Model B marked O Colt Government Size Steel Frame 1953 Israeli Army Police 1 Magazine  Guns > Pistols > Surplus Pistols & Copies

HG1435 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 1953 date code letter Y stamped above the trigger guard to the right of the Spanish Government and Local Eibar proof marks. Butt of the grip frame, interestingly, is stamped not with B, but with the letter O, often an enigmatic suffix. Serial number is 244,000 range, lower than other 400,000 range specimens we’ve had marked with the B model designation. Most likely it came into service with the Israeli Defense Forces during the 1956 War, and served in 1967, 1973, and both Intifadas as well. This specimen 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. 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. The Cal.08 marking on the barrel hood, as Mr. Hoober points out on Star-firearms com, simply refers to the P-08 Luger, same chambering as that venerable piece. Weight empty is 37 ounces, and weight and dimensions are very similar to the Colt 1911 Government Pistols. Grip panels are factory checkered walnut. On this specimen, Surface detractions are extensive brown patina mixed with the still-bright bluing on the slide, more pronounced brown-and-gray mix on the grip frame and safety lever. We rate this specimen as Good, 60 to 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 an etchy texture, but no obvious pits. Slide stop lever is a bit sticky to engage, and must be engaged manually. Otherwise, chamber and mechanism are bright, and clean. Its 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 Pistol for only $ 319.00.
