    I just received this Star Modelo Militar 1920 in 9mm Largo, which was only made for 1 year for the Spanish Civil Guard, a national paramilitary police force - although I guess I don't really need to explain the concept on a European forum! Anyways, it's in really nice shape, all matching, and kind of an interesting design. It incorporates the slide mounted safety and cocking ears on the earlier Star 1914 and 1919 .32s, but is otherwise very much a 1911-style pistol. Interestingly the safety on a French MAS M1935S is identical - and was probably copied from the Star 1914s issue to French troops in WW1.



    Also, it's not really ready for display yet, but I'm restorying this Colt Official Police, which was part of the British contract in .38/200 issued in 1940. The finish is original and it has the correct Woolwich Arsenal stamp beneath the rear sight, but the grips have been replaced and the hammer modified. I'm on the hunt for correct replacements.

    Wonderfull handguns Nyles...
    The Star Md 1920 is a beauty...Once you get rid of the otherwise excellent-for-modern-revolvers Pachmayer rubber grips the Colt will look astounding...

    Why not refinish it while you are at it ? The blue looks worn but from the pic there would seem to be very little or no pitting , it would be simple to bring it back to it's former glory completely.

    Thanks for the kind words all!

    I won't refinish the Colt for reason I went to the trouble of locating a gently used set of original grips (found some today) when I could have gotten some brand-new modern reproductions cheaper - I want my guns original! I bought this one because British-contract Offical Polices are incredibly hard to find, but if it had been refinished I wouldn't have, as for me that's too far gone.
