That looks just like one of my Star 9mm pistols. Does it have a steel or aluminum alloy frame? The Star BM (steel frame) goes for about $250-275 and the BKM (alloy) goes for $300-350. Of course those are for the Star models and also for the other 49 states.

WileyWilly is right; that's either a Star BM or BKM in 9mmP. Many were used by Spanish police agencies; sold as surplus in the US by the thousands. There were also commercial versions imported by Interarms and others. None are C&R, to my knowledge. Works just like a 1911 Colt.

Look on the sales and auction sites like GunsAmerica and gunbroker for asking prices and "winning bids." A very nice little pistol that most of us can't get because of the stupid "consumer safety" gun laws here. But in the interest of REAL safety, if you have one you should go to the "Spanish Pistols" forum on Gunboards.com and search for "inertial firing pin" threads.

I prefer the steel frame to the alloy and would value it around $300-$375

they are GREAT little guns.

$200 IMHO would be a steal.
