Most Stars were actually very well made guns.
Sarco has modem BMs in stock. These are the steel framed small 9mms that look like a 1911.
The later Firestars were about the same size, with the same mechanism-but were much heavier.
Had Star just stuck with their production of 1911-style pistols they wouls still be in business today. The Colt .380 and later the SIG p238 are copies of the Star DK Starfire. The SIG P938 is a copy of the BM/BKM series.
