Produced by Star Bonifacio Echeverria, a small arms manufacturer located in the Basque region of Spain, the Model BM is an inexpensive pistol that doesn't feel cheap. The Model BM is small enough for concealed carry, but it has an all-steel frame rather than the polymer found on many small pistols, making it perfect for those that prefer some heft in their hands and hate recoil. The BM bears some resemblance to the 1911 design, but it's not a straight clone. It comes throated from the factory and the barrel and feed ramp design is the same as on the 1911, but it doesn't share the 1911's grips safety or takedown process. The BM's single-action trigger has a short, clean pull every time. This pistol features a fixed blade front sight with a rear notch, a slide-lock safety, and an 8-round magazine. Its grips and bore are in fair condition and its metal is in good condition.
