Star Spain 9mm Model BKS Lightweight Compact Israeli Police 1974 Lightweight Custom Two Tone Chrome Slide Barrel levers
OUR # HG7558

Item Description

Here is a Star model BKS Compact that served with the Mishteret Y’Israel, the Israeli Civilian Police in Jerusalem District. From its S1 Date Code, it was manufactured in 1974. Manufacturer was Star Echeverria, S.A., of Eibar, Spain. Type is modified 1911 Browning Design, single action locked breech light weight semi automatic pistol. Construction is steel barrel, slide, and parts assembled into a lightweight alloy grip frame. Chambering is 9mm Parabellum, 9mm Luger, 9x19, call it what you will, THE 9mm. Barrel is 3 1/2 inches, with six groove 1:9.75 right hand rifling. Slide is external extractor with rear serrations, Tokarev style bushing and full length guide rod. Sights are stake on serrated ramp front, with dovetailed notch rear that is drift adjustable for windage only. Trigger is .312 serrated face, and hammer is traditional checkered serration spur .425. Safety is three position main safety only, left side for right handed shooter. The safety lever also engages into a disassembly position midways of the slide. This pistol is not equipped with a firing pin safety, hence its stiff but crisp 8 pound vicinity trigger pull with negligible felt creep. Magazine is original Star factory. Capacity is 8 + 1 rounds of 9mm Luger. Weight empty is 26 ounces, balanced at the slide face. Measurements are 6 7/8 inches from the muzzle to the rear of the frame strut; 5 inches from the top of the rear sight to the butt edge of the grip frame; .704 inch frame thickness and .838 inch slide thickness. Grip panels are factory issue brown checkered composite. Markings are factory on the slide’s left side, and importer marking on the left side frame. Finish is custom Israeli chrome plated slide, hammer, trigger, barrel, and levers; with gloss black anodized frame, and with blued steel magazine. Surface detractions are moderate, principally edge wear with some white spots on the grip frame, and residual pre-chrome lettering on the slide. We rate this BM9 as Very Good Refinish, 80 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean. We estimate this pistol has been fired 2,000 times during its careers with the Spaniards and Israelis. Replacement pricing on any European or American made 1911 type pistol these days pushes upwards of $600. We’re offering the Spanish – Israeli Star BKS in the photos, however, for only $ 339.00. Not transferable to civilian residents of California or Massachusetts. Any ammunition or personnel showing in our photos are Not included.
