4" barrel, with bright bore with strong rifling. Blued finish with about 94% of the finish remaining. The slide has some wear on both sides, as does both sides of the front of the frame and the front of the triggerguard. The rear gripstrap has some light wear and the blued finish here is a plum-brown. No rust. Checkered wood grips, in excellent shape and condition with no apparent wear and no cracks or chips. This pistol has the same general lines of the M1911A1 but without the grip safety. The action is tight and smooth. The safety seems to stick just a bit and you have to pull the hammer back a bit past full cock to get the safety to engage. The left side of the slide is marked Star B. Echeverra S.A. 9mm P / Eibar - Espana. The left side of the frame in front of the slide hold-open lever is marked (in a series of small dots) Made In Spain C.A.I. Georgia VT. The left side of the grip just above the magazine release button is stamped 1502618. The right side of the slide and the right side of the frame are both marked with a diamond shape and 50128, and the right top front side of the triggerguard is stamped 79. The bottom of the grip just behind the back edge of the magazine bottom plate is marked BM. The Model BM is considered a compact model.
This is a nice pistol for any collector or for personal use. Condition Very Good Plus. FFL Required.
