Sad to hear Star is no longer in business. I had a Star model PS, 45 acp, looked a lot like a 1911 but with improvements...no grip safety, trigger like a revolver ( pivoted not sliding ) , exterior extractor. it was nicely made and finished and shot rings around my buddy's Colt Gold Cup, which ****** him off to no end cause he paid a whole lot of bucks for it. Sadly it was stolen, and I still miss it...If I came across another , reasonably priced, I would snap it up..no thinking about it. I still got some extra magazines for it.
