Requested by Colt from Star for use in the XM9 U.S. military pistol trials in the early 1980s. Colt requested a total of 20 Star pistols (10 Model 30M and 10 Model 30PK) after deciding not to continue with the XM9 trials Colt later released these 20 pistols for sale to Colt employees. Fixed blade front and adjustable rear notch sights, right side of frame marked "COLT FIREARMS HARTFORD, CT" over the standard Star maker's marks, model marking and serial number on left side of frame, serrated ambidextrous safety, serrated back strap, and checkered grips. The accompanying factory letter confirms the configuration, as one of 20 units imported by Colt from Star, and shipment on July 10, 1989, to Joe Bischof, Colt Firearms, Hartford, CT. This pistol is listed by serial number on page 519 of "Star Firearms" by Leonardo Antaris. Magazine absent.

Rating Definition:

Very fine. 90% plus original blue and black anodized finish remains with numerous scattered nicks and scratches, light edge wear, and handling marks overall. Grips are also very fine with some small dings in the checkering. Mechanically excellent.
