Picked up an old Star BM pistol. All steel, single stack 9 mm (8+1), produced from 1972 to 1992. It was either a Spanish police or military issued pistol. Quite hefty compared to modern polymer framed pistols but still an awesome piece of Cold War history.
Here is a brief history of Star Arms. The article does not say so, but I think they were blindsided by the increasing popularity of the Glock 17/19. The company's attempt to compete with its own polymer pistol, the Ultra Star, did not save them.
