Here is the before and after pic's of the little Star BKM 9mm that I got off GB for $279. This pistol has an alloy frame and weighs 25 ounces. The BK is all steel and sells for a bit less. Pistol will not feed my LRN cast hand loads. I suspect it will probably shoot jacketed RN, but don't have any to try. I shot this target from 30 feet standing, off hand with my butt against my pickup. The pistol was completely disassembled, degreased, blasted with aluminum oxide and finished with Duracoat and baked so I could reassemble it as soon as it cooled. I like it!
