Surplus Star BM 9mm Pistol
Military Arms Channel


Published on Oct 14, 2017
I found a deal on a Star 9mm BM pistol which is a Spanish 1911 clone. The Star BM from J&G Sales is chambered in 9mm and the one I got seems to be in very good shape. The Star 9mm's are generally good pistols and quite popular with their owners. This version, the Star BM, is a compact version of the pistol.

I happen to have one of those critters - STAR BM 9mm. My issue is trying to obtain more magazines for it.
The California company that finds and has magazines made for older and unique pistols their magazines failed to seat, and then would not eject.

If ya get one or want one make sure you find WORKING magazines before you make the pistol purchase.

FYI - Some of the "45s" in the movie Saving Private Ryan were actually STAR 9mm BM pistols. Tom Hanks shooting at the Kraut Tank was a STAR acting as a .45

Milsurp rifles are getting too expensive, and honestly, I'm running short on room. So I've decided to collect bayonets from now on, unless something pops up that I must need.

Will retired Beretta M9 pistols sell for $1,500 each?
I seriously doubt it but my WAG the pricing will be close RETAIL PRICE of "RETIRED" LEO pistols you can find at your local gun store or BUD'S.

Milsurps, at least for now, are dead. Not much available and what there is is overpriced as shit

PRICE = Supply vs DEMAND. Somebodies somewhere seem to be paying the "rate".

I shot a 92F side-by-side and much preferred my Glock 17 before I became a Glock advocate. The action of the 92F was superior in smoothness and trigger pull, but the Glock was just as or more accurate and noticeably lighter making range work easy.
Me and my 92FS can typically out shoot most of the guys in my division and class at IDPA competitions that shoot Glocks....but I a just in marksman SSP....I can beat about half of the sharpshooter guys..but the leaders definetly outclass me and my 92

These Beretta 92s surplus at $279 seem to be a good deal. Almost identical to US military issue sidearm, but without the ambi decocker/safety and with the mag release at the bottom of the grip. I'd be just a little concerned about the mount of wear on the internals and bore.

My teen daughters have been bugging me to train them on a handgun, and this might be a nice training piece.
Have a Berretta fs92 kinda heavy and quite a kick hard to hit anything with, might be just me
But I didn't buy it to shoot I bought it cause it was so pretty.
:dduck:

The Beretta 92 is indeed quite heavy because there's no plastic to speak of. I'm not sure where you got the 'quite a kick' part. The heavier weight helps reduce the recoil and the 92 is chambered in 9mm. 9's don't kick all the hard. Have you ever shot a 1911 45ACP? That's a kick!

I don't do a lot of firing maybe twice a year can't afford the ammo, like I said probably just me. one thing that may effect it though is the trigger
I can go out after I haven't fired in awhile and pull the trigger and it doesn't fire and I say hey what's wrong then I remember it's not a hair trigger
has a lot of loose space to take up for the final pull/firing "hard trigger" That also might be affecting my aim etal
fired the 45 as a Regular army driver/TC on a Sheridan tank as a personal weapon back in the 70's didn't seem to my recollection that the kick was that much.
In the late 80'/early 90's my reserve unit transitioned to and practiced a little with the 92 didn't like the way it fired but sleek looking weapon
so when I was looking for a hand gun decided on it.

I would still love a K31 but I'm not willing to pay the current asking prices.

Yes a 45 is on my want/dream list with a 45/70, something that shoots a 500 Jeffery just because I want them.
perhaps when I win the lottery... :2 thumbs up:

Most gun stores will take a trade-in especially a Beretta 92 in good or better condition. If you want to move to a 45. Compared to a 45 I do not see where 92FS/M9 "Kicks" more.
Cost wise 9mm ammo is cheaper than 45.

Milo. It seem you have Champagne Tastes with a Root Beer pocket book.

SAVE your spent brass and trade for live ammo is a way to cut costs. Best Wishes

Regarding the Beretta 92... buy any decent Beretta body that is cheap. Parts kits go for about $30, barrels can be had for $125 to $200 depending upon what you want. After that you practically have a new pistol.

PSA has optic ready M-4s on sale for $469 Valentine's Day special. Not truly milsup, but if you like the platform that's pretty cheap.
