    Yeh, they are pretty rare (and my state gun law is not helping neither).

    Bac since you also have a 30M. Can you tell me if Megastar is an over size of 30M (like CZ97 to 75) or they have complete different design?

    I also own a Megastar in .45. It's a beast that really tames the recoil of .45 ACP.

    I got one up on you; I have five, factory mags for mine. Prepare to cry when you go looking for extras.

    I shed a tear when Star and Astra went out of business. Great guns for the price.

    Yeah, I see mags on Gunbroker and they aren't cheap.

    I wonder if more available mags could be made to work, at least well enough for range use?

    That's one heavy gun, but I bet the recoil is pretty mild.

    Here is the 30M and Megastar together. The frames are different, as is the trigger and other controls.

    Been thinking about adding a Firestar to my little collection but wasn't sure of thier quality. I had a friend who owned one for a while and it certainly felt solid. What say ye guys about them that know the guns?

    My father has an old Star Firestar in .45 that he loves. Unfortunately it finally gave up the ghost a year or so ago when the slide cracked. It started failing to feed, and we discovered the cracks. Fortunately, the slide didn't completely let go, and I don't want to think about the damage potential if it had. He's been looking for a replacement slide ever since, and has had no luck.

    Congrats on the new addition, BAC. I always turn a little green with jealousy whenever I see you start a new thread.

    I prefer the larger Star pistols, but Firestars generally work well.
