FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Star Model S is an all-steel, compact version of the Star Model B family of pistols, available chambered in 9mmK and 7.65mm (.32 ACP – designated SI), and produced from 1940 till 1983.
The design of these pistols greatly resembles a miniature M1911, or rather a Star Model B, as they are in fact scaled down versions of the full-sized Star pistols, complete with a short-recoil locked-breech, and featuring the same general profile and controls.
The Star Model S has been used by the police and armed forces of a number of countries, especially by troops who prioritize space and weight, such as aviators.
At one time the Model S was the official sidearm of the Spanish Foreign Legion.
It is notable that this is one of the few, delayed blow-back 9mmK pistols that are available, as most others are designed as straight or direct blow-back, giving this pistol a noticeably softer recoil impulse.
This gun is in good to very good, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The overall original finish is still good, with just some light wear to front and top edges of the slide, edge of the trigger guard and safety lever.
There is also some extremely light wear to the front of the grip and back-strap.
The original plastic grip panels are still perfect.
The action is still very tight.
Includes 2 x 8 round magazines.
This firearm is perfect for every-day, concealed or pocket carry.
