Hi All,

I know the old board had a info. link to date Star pistols.
I cannot find it.

I have a Star B serial #2339xx can you tell me when it was made or post a link.

THANKS,

The proof mark table can be located at Sociedad Largo website 9mmLargo.com
at the bottom of the main page. I don't have my reference material with me, but by the serial number I would guess around 1943.

Hi Bob,

Thanks, I found it about a hour after I posted here. It has a wavy line above N = 1943!

Man your GOOD!

It seems to be in the last group sent to Romaina. (BIG SMILE!) It has a few extra stamps on the slide.
Left side just above the 9 mm marking O or D inside a three sides box (bady stamped) & (badly stamped also) 3 inside the box.

Also has a marking on the right rear of the slide c 4 c running vertical with the slide surrations.
Do you know what they mean?

It is not German marked.


Thanks again for your help,

Actually these are Bulgarian contract, not Romanian. The markings on the slide are the Bulgarian arsenal marks - most were defaced during the post-war refurbishment.

Hi BOB,

I looked it again. Your right.
I was HAPPY to see it listed there & did not take the time to read the whole thing!

Is that infomation listed in a book some place?
I want to make a copy & put it with the gun for collectors sale value.- So my wife will know it is a SPECIAL pistol.

I have been trying to do this with odd guns I have collected in the past.

Thanks again for your very helpful posts,

"Star Firearms" by Leonardo Antaris is a fantastic comprehensive book on the Star firearms, but it is not cheap.
