    [​IMG] Okay I've got a lot of questions about Star pistols. I just purchased a like new, possibly unfired, Star Model BS 9mm pistol. It is similar to a 1911 in appearance. So does anyone know how to figure out the mfg. date for these pistols? Is there an internet site that has the serial number range and dates of mfg.? What about magazines and grips? Any good sources? What models, if any, does the model BS interchange with on grips and magazines? What would the value of a model BS in 97 to 98% condition be on todays market? Are there any model BS owners out there that can share their experiences? Above is a picture of the gun I purchased.

    Is it 9mm Luger? I thought some of them were 9mm Largo or something like that.

    Interesting looking pistol...I saw one at the range a few years back, thought it was a 1911 at first glance. Oh, and welcome to OSA.

    Thank you for the welcome. It does very much resemble the 1911 except it doesn't have a grip safety. These were actually used a lot in movies
    in place of a 1911 .45 ACP because the 9mm blanks were more reliable.

    Very Nice!

    the Star BM 9mm and Star PD .45 ACP are both guns I would like to have. Unfortunately I seem to have missed the import when they were cheap.
