Paging Bat Guano

What the hell is this? The owner of my new hangout took this in, but none of us has seen one before or know anything about it. Google turns up nothing. 9mm, single action only, has magazine disconnect, ambi thumb safety.

Century arms import, made by Nova Modul in Cugir, Romania.

The Star Firestar is a series of single-action semi-automatic pistol consisting of four models that received the 1991 Handgun of the Year Award from Guns & Ammo magazine. The Firestar was available in 9 mm Para (M-43), .40 S&W (M-40), and .45 ACP(M-45) calibers, all having a single-stack magazine. A double-stack 9mm version (M-243) was also available and was commonly referred to by the unofficial name "Firestar Plus". The Firestar was produced by the now defunct Star Bonifacio Echeverria, S.A. in Eibar, Spain until 1994. The Firestar was imported into the United States by Interarms of Alexandria, Virginia.

Although its external appearance resembles a compact M1911, the Firestar is different in several respects. For example, the Firestar does not have the 1911's grip safety. The Firestar's safety features include an automatic safety at the firing pin (a feature not included in the 1911's original design but often found in more modern 1911 variants). The Firestar has operating procedures analogous to those of the Colt 1911: it is single action, and meant to be carried in Condition One (cocked and locked), with a cartridge in the chamber, cocked hammer and locked manual safety.

The Firestar is a compact, reliable and accurate handgun well-suited for backup or concealed carry. Its single-stack design sacrifices the superior magazine capacity of a double-stack, but permits a slim profile prized by many for concealed carry. While heavier than more modern handguns of comparable size made with today's composite materials, many shooters find the added heft provides a more stable shooting platform that improves accuracy.

On 6 May 2002 Volkert van der Graaf used the M43 to assassinate Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Firestar_M43

Woah, I have carbine gas system on my 10.5" how does it shoot with gas block set to I guess "normal"?
>> No. 106621 ID: dcea3a
The gas port is intentionally overgassed, this barrel is intended only to be used with an adjustable gas block. I have it set to just enough gas to lock the bolt back every time plus two clicks for reliability. Its kinda fun with barely enough gas to work though, you can feel the sproing like a 20" rifle.

Kinda reminds of my SP1 troll build I'm working on. Rifle length gas port on a JP barrel chopped at 16'' with a regular A1 gas block. It needs a can to function.
>> No. 106633 ID: dcea3a
It actually runs really well even without a can, I have a couple thousand rounds through it now. The more retarded thing is the brake. Sounds like I'm shooting .50BMG, shoots a 2 foot fireball, and you can feel the shockwave in your sinuses if you're standing next to me. Unfortunately there is no flash hider mount for the can I got but at least it's effective as a brake lmao, combined with the adjustable gas system it recoils like .22lr. If it weren't a suppressor mount I would not put a brake on an 11.5" rifle.

Should be noted that with the Stryk B they caved to market pressure and went with Glock style setup because people wanted "more options".
A bit of a shame, really. The backplate setup had a lot of advantages.

But it illustrates why Glock knockoff slides would want to stick to conventions.

hey operators, I've been thinking about my options for moving from my steel-framed CZ up to a polymer wondergun. however, part of why I've been such an autist about sticking with the CZ obsessively is that it lacks finger grooves, which just don't feel right for me.

obviously the Gen 5 Glocks lack these, but they have a poor aftermarket. Gen 2s are an option, as well. or I could always customize a later Gen Glock myself (or pay someone to do it for me). Arsenal has the Stryker but I am hesitant about that one for some reason. any other polymer guns I am missing?

As >>106458 said, the Gen 5 only has a small aftermarket since it's brand new. If you like Glocks, get one and backfill aftermarket parts as they're available if you must.

M&Ps are nice, but the hinging trigger sucks. I'd replace it with an Apex trigger just to get rid of the hinge, but the pull improvements are nice.

You could also try the CZ P10C. It's basically a better Glock, but with unknown reliability. My friend's runs fine, but other people have had problems. The best part is that you don't have to change anything (unless the grip texture tears your hands up, then a set of rubberized Talon grips will fix that).

So, the Stryk B just hit the shelves in Euroland.

It's an evolution of the Arsenal Strike One, which did rather poorly before. It's main selling point was herping about low barrel axis (and thus low barrel climb), but the biggest issue was the trigger which was lackluster at best. They eventually released drop in trigger replacements which should be OK.

The Stryk B was made in collaboration between Arsenal, Salient Arms and RUAG.
It's got a fairly novel locking system which allows for low barrel axis, but other than that it's mostly just a strikerfired polymer wondernine with some fancy "gripmapping" and an enhanced trigger.

I've got a 9X19 permit I need to fill by the end of the month, or I lose it. So I may just get one.

Hello, I recently noticed a fair amount of white discoloration on the interior of my first generation Steyr AUG A3. I was wondering if this might be normal wear-and-tear or something more severe. I noticed that all of the discoloration seems to appear around the gas-block and barrel, both of which get very hot during sustained firing. I have attached photos of the discolorations, excuse the potato-quality camera.

> Graphite dry lubricant
I made the same mistake when I first got into guns, if you apply too much of that dry lube it will have that weird white stuff on the area you over apply the lube. For my AUG I went with the good old grease and it's working well so far.

I'd suggest do a thorough cleaning of your AUG and apply a different lube/grease on it. It seems there is more maintenance for dry lube than the gun itself.
>> No. 106380 ID: f11f4d
Interesting, could you take some pictures?
Corrosion due to graphite on aluminum has always been one of those mythical things that is mentioned, but never seen. Prior to this thread I've not seen a single possible example in a gun.

Never used it myself, because honestly the only suitable place for it is a foosball table.

>the dye is ... just breaking down

this. heat is breaking down the dye, revealing the aluminiumoxide underneath which is white in color. if you have more questions/concerns, drop Steyr an email, they should be able to help you.

That is good to hear, as long as the weapon is disintegrating and it is just discoloration, I am fine with it. I also googles "White powder inside AR-15" to see if anyone else was having similar issues. Interestingly, two other people mentioned similar residue after firing American Eagle XM193 ammunition which, curiously enough, was the exact same ammunition I had been using earlier. Thanks for all of the input, I intend to give another cleaning or two and might email Steyr about the issue.

I FINALLY got my NY pistol permit and it's unrestricted (can CCW in NY). I have a CZ-75b on order with my FFL. I wouldn't mind carrying that in the winter under a coat, but I also need a summer carry handgun. I'm thinking Glock 26. I have a G26 BlueGun that I've been practicing drawing with, but is the Glock 43 THAT much better for CCW?

Now I'm considering an M&P shield in 9mm. Hopefully I'll be shooting one in the upcoming weeks. Anyone have experiences with them? Anything I should know over the Glock platform?
>> No. 106391 ID: bd9939
I carried one for a while IWB with a Stealth Gear Onyx

It was okay. Trigger was pretty blah and I mine shot about 6 inches high no matter what. One stovepipe with Federal HST 124 grain in the middle of about 200 rounds. I will say they are muuuuch rougher now from the factory. They are just cranking those things out and basically giving them away.

I got rid of that and bought a Kahr CM9 for pocket carry. Kahrs have their own problems, but once I replaced the broke shit mag followers with aluminum from lakeline LLC, this thing is a champ. This thing is muuuuch more accurate, has better sights hits point of aim and I really prefer the long but super smooth trigger.

I would also take the Glock or a Walther PPS M1 or M2 over the shield any day personally. But they are a lot more expensive.

Shields are fine and if I still had mine it would be alright, but they're more budget than advertised.

Went up to Dallas this past weekend and met up with a MG buddy.
He brought out his Steyr AUG A1 and his RPB MAC-11 in .380.
I brought out my Chinese AK and AR-18.

The AUG was surprisingly fun. The main thing I have against bullpups is the trigger but in full auto who gives a damn. I consistently shot in 2 round bursts and there is minimal muzzle climb so I was able to stay on target at 15 yards through the scope. Again, it really is remarkable how little muzzle rise there is. You can one-hand magdump from the hip as easily as a SMG.

Of course, the MAC is a bullet hose, but I will say it's a funner bullet hose in .380 than it is in 9mm. I was able to keep bursts to about 5 rounds or so. Of course, the stock and front strap aren't really worth a damn. It's uncomfortable to shoulder and try to get a cheek weld. The cyclic rate is so high that little piles of unburned powder built up on the floor. Occasionally, residual powder left in the receiver would spark up after the gun was empty.

Fun times, regardless.

When i shot this for the first time, i thought i´m shooting with a BB Gun. Not to mention the almost non-existent recoil.

The trigger gave us headaches sometimes in the army. Cannot remember which part worn out in the trigger assembly, but either it blocked you from going FA, or you completely went FA on the slightest pull. Been fun times when our seargent yelled "2 single shots on target, open fire" and most of our guys went BRRRRRT.
