Looking for a good 9mm with a little history that won’t break the bank?

Classic Arms is selling ‘”fair condition” Star (Star Bonifacio Echeverria, S.A) Model BMs, which is a 9mm Colt Commander-sized single action made for Spanish police between 1972 and 1992, for $149.

Wut.

These sweet little pistols are great– I’ve picked up a few in recent months. Pro-tip if you get into collecting these: C.G.P. markings on the slide are for the Civil Guardia Policia for Spain and P.A. is the Policia Armada for Spain. CGP patrolled the rural areas while the PA patrolled the cities (Madrid, Barcelona, etc.).

The model was used by LaFrance Specialties to make the famous “NOVA 6-Pack” in the 1980s that could use either a chopped 6-round mag or the standard 8-shot.

Stars from the Eger Collection, lol:

Standard…

And with Chinese elm aftermarket panels by Reine Smith at 4S Grips and an Outbags full-grain leather Colt Commander-sized holster that fits like a glove.

Look around your AO. Do you see more than a few people with whom you share values? If not, how do you expect a majoritarian democracy to work there, especially without any effective check against local, state, or Federal power?
