I had an m43 firestar. Compact size for concealed carry, but the all steel gun weighed almost as much as my Browning Hi Power. Star went bankrupt in 1997. A group of former employees either bought the inventory or tried to produce parts for awhile, but that source seems to have dried up and parts are nearly impossible to find now.
You know you've overindulged during the holidays when your IWB carry pants fit normally without the gun.
