FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The family of Star model B, BM and Super B pistols are all Spanish manufactured, semi-automatic pistols based on the design of the famous Colt M1911, but are chambered in 9mmP.
Although all the Star Model B pistols greatly resemble the M1911 in appearance, there are some differences regarding their design, actions and controls, with obvious ones being the exclusion of the grip safety and the use of an external extractor.
The first Model B pistols were produced in the 1920s and were highly exported and used in WWII, particularly in Germany.
They were also used by members of the South African Defense Force during the 1970s and 1980s.
These pistols are generally considered high quality and give good performance.
This gun is in excellent used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
The overall, original finish is almost perfect.
There is only some extremely light wear around the front edge of slide and trigger guard, but this is virtually insignificant.
There is also some extremely light (really almost unnoticeable) wear on front of the grip and back strap.
The original grips are excellent except for one, tiny crack in one panel.
The action is still extremely tight and this pistol seems to have barely ever been fired.
It comes in its original cardboard box.
Includes 2 x 8 round magazines.

In early movie productions M1911 pistols were often substituted for Star Model B pistols as they resembled them so closely, but worked better with the 9mmP blank firing ammunition of the time.
A famous nickel plated Star Model B can be seen in the movie ‘Pulp Fiction’ used by the character Jules, and which he refers to as “Mr nine-millimeter”.
