I've never hid my affection for old-school metal guns: steel, steel and AL or steel and alloy. I purchased an Star UltraStar as one of the few plastic pistols in the safe (S&W SD9VE, Shield, SW990L, and Walther PPX.
I found this review on the Pistolsmith board from 2002 and thought it might be...
Full disclosure first: As some here may recall, I have a thing for steel or alloy non-striker pistols. Out here in WA state I have old Smiths, early Beretta 9mms, Stars and Astras and a few (S&W) wheel guns....plus my pride and joy a HiPower that's been well tuned. (I've also got some plastic...
Okay....here's a "new" 9mm Spanish Star M30PK from CDI (free shipping as it didn't have a mag (Steel slide, alloy frame...the P = Police model thus shorter barrel than M30 and K = alloy). But as I have two S&W 5906 mags that fit my Star 30MI just fine and I took the original 30MI mag for this...
Took my "new" Spanish 1958 Star B to the range today. It shot great. I should have brought my Super B as well to compare the two, but I shot it along with a Star 28PK and S&W SD9VE.
First, the not quite good: the slide takes a block and tackle to rack unless the hammer is cocked. Not...
I didn't see a thread about this so forgive me if it is a dupe.

Anyone going to see it?
Just picked up a "new" Star m30MI 9mm. It's the second version of the first of the "wondernines" (the Star 28) with a 15 round mag (takes S&W 5906 mags)and a very unusual safety/decocker (decocking doesn't lower the hammer, it blocks the hammer from hitting the firing pin, you then have to pull...

.1911 looking and a nice N.Y 8rd.. smiley mag
Hope I don't get a beater but Aim has always done right by me

Looking for some help with tick identification here. Must have picked up this little bugger while doing yardwork today, luckily I felt him immediately start to bite and picked him off before he could latch on. After looking around, my best guess is a male Lone Star tick, but I'm not too sure...
