    It seems 1911 style pistols in 9mm are very popular now days. Well they have been popular in other parts of the world for many years. I think these Star model B pistols are a very good buy on the mil-surp market. I see Sarco has them for $220 in fair condition which is how I would grade this one. Their value is more as shooters than collectors. I have considered trying to learn how to cerakote and refinishing some of these but just haven't yet. They are very 1911 like and take down the exact same way. The main differences is no grip safety and the trigger is pinned at the top and pivots rather than coming straight back. According to the marking this one was proofed in 1933 so that probably pretty close to its "born on date". IMG_3817.JPG IMG_3821.JPG IMG_3820.JPG IMG_3823.JPG

    I've heard good things about those stars. Wouldn't mind having one myself.

    Of course they aren't manufactured any longer as the company went out of business in 1997 but they aren't hard to find on the used gun market.
