I can not identify this marking I have seen on several Star Model BS pistols. These are the Model BS that have been imported from Israel. It seems that only guns with 1971 date code have this marking and most have a lanyard ring. Here are a couple poor pictures I have found. Does anyone know what country stamped this marking on the pistol?

Is that a surface stamping or part of the frame?
It resembles the older style Browning Hi Power frame cross beam (cam?).

Sudafrica - South Africa - a lot of these were sold to the South African military.

I just won one of these at gunbroker. I was thinking about a C&R B from JG (century is out) but many reports are not flattering. The one I clicked seems to be not refinished either, a big plus for me.

Came to this thread from a suggestion of another member who posted on my thread of the same topic (thanks!)
