    star bonifacio echeverria is the manufacturer
    eibar is a place in espana----spain

    If it is marked 9mm 38 it is chambered in 9mm Largo. Longer and lower pressure than
    9x19. Based on the info you have provided, that's about all anybody can say.

    Post some pictures---that would help with identification. There are several models
    of Star pistols that were chambered in 9mm Largo.

    Just understand it is not a 9mm parabelum. You have to find the "largo" to shoot it

    +1 on ^^^^. Here is a little info on the Largo and some others that will fit in the chamber.

    9mm Largo vs. Others

    9mm Largo is available, as are new brass and components to roll your own.
