Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Star BM from 09-2017 batch of LEO imports J&G Sales

RWS/Vonalt,

I got a chance to go to the range with the BM and put maybe 250 rounds down range using both mags with no feed or cycle issues. I used mostly 115g from Herters and Monarch both Brass and Steel cased. Second set was 124g with some 147g and again all functioned fine.

Great Pistol.

Re: Star BM from 09-2017 batch of LEO imports J&G Sales

Kevin: You and I both experienced functioning problems with factory brass-cased 115 grain ammo in our old WW2 Star Model B's. How reliable has your BM been thus far? Vonalt : Would like to hear your opinions on BM reliability as well. -Bob Good news bad news. Bad news is I have not had time to shoo...

My pistol came in a Green Box with unused tool and instruction book in Spanish that calls out Guardia Civil and the box matches what I b...

I'm gonna' say its 8x56 cause it has the "S" on the barrel shank and it's imported markings show 8x56. I'd say trying loading it with a clip and see if it chambers.
The OPs rifle did not have a S. What you see above is my rifle to show what to look for.

WZ-1970 Air Pistol Disassembly and reassembly help

I need some help with disassembly on this one ( I have search the net but not found what I need to get past this one).

Has anyone removed the piston? If you want to make a phone call PM me so we can set something up. I cannot figure it out.

Thanks,
Kevin

Re: 1945 Star Model B I have been around the block...

Bob,

Good info. I will try to swing by Academy today or this weekend and get some more "test" ammo. Not sure when I will get a chance to go to the range but will provide my feedback. I too was wanting to see some 124 grain steel cased but had not found any.

Spanish FR-8 Rear Sight Parts

I am looking for the set screw from a Spanish FR-8 Rear Sight (the part that keeps the dial from spinning all the way around).

Looking to buy or if some on has had one made that would be great for a lead.

Thanks,
Kevin

Re: 1945 Star Model B I have been around the block...

Quick update. Went shooting today with my Dad and thanks to a conversation early last week with Candyman I had some 124 grain 9mm ammo and (most like 95%) of my feeding issues are gone. So I tried steel cased ammo (115g), European 9mm (115), new Old stock B Mag, new Wolff spring and the thing that m...

I've had good results in my 1893s with 170 grain, RN, flat base. They measured .284. Even better was some 153 grain spitzers that measured .287.
LEP,

Are these two still for sale or have they been manufacture discontinued?

Thanks,
Kevin
