Ok thanks, what would you or anyone rate the reliability of the Star modelo Super? I really want this gun but dont want another headache, I like the 1911 desighn and the caliber is also interesting, I have read that it is accurate.If I recall the 9mm Largo was more powerful. American ammo is always loaded somewhat more moderate. When SARCO was selling these they posted the figures on the 9mm Largo they were selling, it was more in the 38 Super range. So that would be like 9mm Luger +p
Ok thanks, ill check it out good and make sure it doesn't feel loose.All I can say is that many of these are surplus guns, and my policy with anything that is used and surplus is to handle the one I buy, or make sure you get it from a dealer that doesn't tend to over rate their used guns and has a return or exchange policy. The latest gun I have REALLY recommended people do this with is the CZ82 guns coming out of the Czech Republic. Some look good and are worn out, and others show so much carry wear its scary and are still tight.
Just make sure the gun is not sloppy, that lockup is good and tight, and get extra mags for it.
