I have an old model B I bought in really crappy shape 4 yrs ago or so. Since it was in such bad shape, I decided to use it for a project I had in the back of my mind for a while. In pulp fiction, Sam Jackson used a model b for his "mr 9mm" pistol he carried throughout the movie. I had it hard chromed and put some fake ivory grips on it, and now it looks like his. In the condition it was in, I didn't ruin any collectors value. I have to Appraise it for insurance or future sale, whic will probably not happen. Any ideas what to say it is worth?

Not to qwibble, but it looks like fake pearl, not ivory, but it looks like a fun personal project. As far as worth goes, well practical worth is probably what any other Star shooter is worth, it does shoot? Other than that, put a price on it that it is worth to you, to replace it should some disaster occur. This is basically what I had ot do with my 1975 Trans Am. Blue Book is basically zip, but to replace in the shape it is in, well that is another story.

It shoots great. I had to get a new mag from star on the boards, since the hard chrome guy did the mag I had and it binds up now. "Only a pimp you have a pearl handled pistol". Patton. On the grips, I ordered the closest thing from the movie I could find.

Hello.

Where did you find these grips ? I have a nickle plated 9mm Star B Super and want to add a set of pearl grips for the Jules Mr. 9mm look.

Thanks.

Randy.

I think I bought them on these boards from someone who was making different Types of grips. I bought a prior set on eBay. Maybe 4 yrs ago. I don't remember who but they were making cz52 grips as well. These turned out much better than the cz ones. The ebay ones were pretty good too.
