    Star Super B

    Just picked up this Star Super B. Yes, it is 9mm parabellum. Was yours like this, Jim ?

    Now, that one is marked "Super", are you sure it won't chamber 38 Super?

    Star made the B in 9mm and 38 Super. Same everything except for calibre. You get 8 and 9 shot magazines for the Star B.

    Nice pistol. This one's in 9 X 19mm too, but I believe that they were chambered in 9mm Largo as well. No lanyard loop, must have been made for civilians. Had to open up the rear notch, as I had issues with seeing daylight between it's edges and the front sight. Yep. The age thing again.

    Ammo for Star Super B

    Jim, not such a good memory, always try to look (finally) at your posts. According to my info the markings are definately 9P. Here 9mm is easier to get than .38 special. Rumor has it that certain gov't agencies are buying it up.

    Less than 1% of the federal government's expenditures on ammunition and firearms is on revolvers and ammunition for them, according to the GAO so it's unlikely the government has any hand in shortages of certain rimmed calibers. Rumors of the Feds instituting backdoor gun control by "buying up all the ammo" has little basis in truth. Of much greater concern is the total number of Federal Government agencies who's employees are armed at all.

    The Star B/BS did have a narrow notch in the rear sight. Light filing with a small file quickly solves that.

    OK, mine was in 38super or 9mm as long as you fed from the mag. I went ahead and got lots of super brass, I guess the Largo must be close too. I didn't have any to try just super in my ammo collection. When I sold it I bet the next guy used nothing but 9mm. That's what it was sold as anyway, 9mm. It shot great and worked perfectly. I remember something about the firing pin was a direct contact, if you had a round chambered and hammer down you had the firing pin against the primer. I had a broken firing pin and had to make one from scratch. I still come across the old broken firing pin here in my parts.

    largo

    Jim, not that it matters - 9mm Largo is 9x23 (hard to get), 9mm is 9x19. mags won't feed.
