Picked this one up from my dealer today. A 1978 Star BM from 09-2017 C.A.I batch of LEO imports sold by J&G Sales.

I also picked up one extra magazine (the limit). 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 believe is the S/N and Contract number (maybe Contract S/N). Nice bore (never figured out how to take good pictures of that) . Very happy with it. I did select the "hand select".

From the ad:
In stock now!

Star Model BM semi auto pistol in 9mm Luger (9x19). Commonly a Spanish police and military issue pistol, the Star Bonifacio Echeverria modelo BM features a 4" barrel, blued finish, dovetailed rear sight, fixed front sight, black plastic checkered grip panels, compact all steel 1911 Commander style slide and frame, manual safety lever, solid trigger, and checkered spur hammer. Includes one 8rd magazine, a box (cardboard or plastic), a manual (in Spanish, sometimes a copy of the original), and a cleaning rod. Blued finish may be arsenal refurbished with police marking removed. In overall Very Good condition, the bluing may show high edge holster wear and patina, and the bore shows service wear and may be frosted. Not C&R, but nice historical pistols!

Choose from menu above to Hand Select for nicer appearance (+$20) or to add one spare magazine (+$19.95)

One of my favorite pistols to shoot. Love how accurate the pistol is. I shoot best with it using 124 grain or heavier bullets. For being a commander sized pistol is darn accurate.

Never had a BM--always liked its smaller size compared to the Star Super--nice gun, and the Guardia connection/box add to the
cool factor.
