Commonly a Spanish police and military issue pistol, the Star Bonifacio Echeverria modelo BM features a 4" barrel, blued finish, dovetailed rear sight, fixed front sight, black plastic checkered grip panels, compact all steel 1911 Commander style slide and frame, manual safety lever, solid trigger, and checkered spur hammer. Includes one 8rd magazine, a box (cardboard or plastic), a manual (in Spanish, sometimes a copy of the original), and a cleaning rod.

Overall I think a good value for the money. My randomly picked pistol is in good shape. There are several reviews on line. Occasionally the trigger on my Star will lock up. Not sure if it's the way I'm pressing. Once I let off it breaks easily. The Star trigger pivots rather than a straight back pull as a 1911 would. I would recommend.
Gun had issues extracting two or three rounds every magazine. Could be the extractor it looks smaller and more worn down compared to another BM I have. I removed and cleaned the channel and extractor. Will probably need a new extractor to work correctly.
Pistol had a little more external wear than I was expecting, which made me nervous about the overall condition. However, once I took it apart to clean I saw that the internals (especially the condition of the barrel) looked almost new. I will gladly take a used gun with a little bit of external wear that is as good as this gun is internally. Shoots great, feels great in the hand, almost 0 recoil. Very happy with my purchase and looking forward to a light resto job.
