The pistol I received was in very good condition, especially for only costing $200. At my first range session with it, I did encounter some FTE malfunctions, however after running more rounds through it, I am almost certain it was ammo-related since the only brass not being ejected was all from the same manufacturer. Overall, this is an excellent addition to my surplus collection and would not be a bad carry weapon as well for someone who is looking for a reliable budget handgun.
I ordered the STAR BM and received it once I got my transfer FFL to send a copy of his license...I received a STAR BM in very good condition and I purchased a second magazine....The gun was made in 1979 and shows very little finish wear. The gun is fit and finished superbly. The bore was scrubbed and turned out shiny with no frosting..an added bonus. The BM fits in my 1911 holsters like it was made for it...go for it buy one you will love it!
Haven't shot it yet, but the pistol looks and feels great! Showed it to a friend and he liked the feel of it also, first thing he asked was when were we going to shoot! I was looking at a new SCCY 9mm, but I like a gun with a little history behind it. The Star BM fits the bill.
Fun little pistol. I've had it out 3 times now and put 300 rds of cheap Wolf steel cased ammo through it w/100% reliability. It has good accuracy as well (although mine shoots slightly high at 10-15 yds). My rear sight is a little banged up (but still serviceable). Once I figured out where to hold it, I can put rounds right where I want them. Get extra magazines if they're available when you purchase this gun as 8 rounds isn't very many these days.
