Star M1 9mm

Anyone have experience with any of the Star model M1 in 9mm's?

Star is the one on the bottom, RIA .45 on the top.
I got it for $225.00 used. It's a double action 9mm and shoots real sweet. Finding parts for it is a problem. I tried to find some extra mags and after a timely search I found some, pricey but I found them.

Sorry, I don't know much about them. If they are reliable and accurate, and usually around $225...sounds like a great value gun. Welcome to the forum.

I have known a few people to get a STAR made by Interarms which are also marked STARFIRE I believe, or at least they used to be. Pretty much like owning a Spanish Llama.

Re: Star M1 9mm

I bet colt don't send him a Christmas card this year. the folks that I have known to have them love them. My carry 45 is a Military made in the Phillappins. Has the large sight that I need and also like. And I got it out the door for $300.00. It has taken anything that I have put in it. That is one of the things folks that have the Star like is that they take anything. Aw don't know about wolf shot some once didn't care for it.

I've only ever heard good things about the Stars and really liked the one Samuel L. Jackson's character used in Pulp Fiction.

Re: Star M1 9mm

Star has made good guns for a long time. Some of their designs like the PD .45 and the Starfire autos were innovative and interesting. I am not familiar with their DA autos but if you were able to get enough magazines and it proves reliable with your choice of carry ammo it should serve you well and sounds like you got a good price. I would feel better about a Star from the the mid sixties on than I would about a Taurus, and I have two Taurus autos that I like, though I would not buy their revolvers.

Re: Star M1 9mm

I've had this Star 9mm since the mid 1980s.....only problem was a broken firing pin, which I think Checkmate Plating broke, when they hard chromed the gun.....accurate, easy to shoot.....shortage of magazines.....

Nice looking version of the Star Wizard. I like the one I have, specially like the hammer with double action.

Re: Star M1 9mm

I have a Star, Starfire in .40 S&W that I carry from time to time and it's never failed to go bang when I pulled the trigger. Well made firearm, in my less than humble opinion.

I have a Starfire M30: this is a reliable old horse. Easy to care for, shoots like a dream. It doesn't care what I put through it: cheap or expensive ammo, factory loads or hand loads. Okay, yeah, the groups are a bit tighter with expensive hand loads. This is definitely a decent weapon.
