Here's a report I got via email concerning them, I haven't done business with them.
Let me tell you of my experience locating Mod. B parts. In early Jan. 99, I wrote to Crown Parts in Houston Tx. I sent a list of
parts I needed along with a SASE for reply. I never heard from them.
Later, in early Feb 99, I sent the same list to Bob's Gun Shop, P.O. Box 200, Royal AR 71968. Again I sent a list along with a
return envelope. Within days he replied. I ordered some of the parts I needed. They were priced right and shipped promptly. I
would recommend Bob's to anyone looking for these hard-to-find parts.
Haven't done business with them.
1. Amazon.com online book sellers. Price=$43.95 US
2. I.D.S.A. Books, P.O. Box 1457, Piqua, Ohio 45356; Voice: 937-773-4203; Fax: 937-778-1922; Price=$40.45 US.
I ordered my copy from I.D.S.A., I have ordered several things from them and got prompt service. I have done business with Amazon.com and recommend them also.
Here's the information quoted from Keith:
"What I CANNOT do, is to make any firing pins for the individual owners to "drop-in" and assemble. Destroyers are hand fit from such a variety of parts which differ dimensionally, there is no such thing as a drop-in Firing Pin possible.
I must ask for the complete bolt (ONLY) to be sent to me, post-paid, for accurate measurements prior to machining and fitting the new pin. Send along a typical fired case, if you have one available. I will finish machine the firing pin from 140,000 psi tool steel, thread it, hand-fit it for length and pin hole size, re-install the spring and re-assemble with the proper firing pin protrusion. It is ready as a completely assembled bolt upon it's return. The original pin is returned with the bolt.
I have settled on $45/pin, to custom fit to the customer's bolt. I'll pay return shipping. 100% guaranteed to satisfy the gun's needs."
Several friends have gotten excellent service from Keith, and I highly recommend him.
I have ordered from W.C. Wolff and received excellent service.
I have ordered several times from Gun Parts and although they can't tell you if something is in stock (as of last time I ordered), they offer excellent service and were prompt and courteous with a return.
I have ordered several times from Springfield Sporters and received excellent service.
Received this information from Hunter's Lodge Corporation on 28 April 2000:
Gentlemen have good supply Spanish Destroyer parts. Some items limited. Advise wants. No Astra 400 bushing at this time. Star super -Grips used $29.95, Magazines $49.00, 9mm Largo ammo $22.50 per 100rds.
There has been severe criticism of this company on rec.guns and several list servers. I have personally dealt with them also, and was less than satisfied, if you want details email me. I recommend them as a last resort.
Got this information from the Gun Parts Corp. forums:
Question Subject: Star Pistol Parts Source
Submitted by: Name: Alan Date: 1/13/2002 3:39:00 AM
For those that need parts for Star post-war models such as the PD, BM, BKS, BKM, Models 30, 31, Firestar, Ultrastar, etc., etc. that Gun Parts Corp. doesn't have, through some cyber-sluething I found out that Sarco, Inc. in New Jersey purchased the Star parts inventory of Intermarms, the last importer of Star handguns, when Interarms went bankrupt 2 or 3 years ago. There is a caveat though: Sarco has had the parts warehoused since that time and has not had the space or time to sort them out and catalogue them, so they have not been available. In recent correspondence they said that they now have additional space and "do plan to get started shortly." Sarco's website is www.sarcoinc.com.
I have ordered several times from Sarco and received excellent service. They were even willing to go check the parts bin for me for availability of a part.
When I had an FFL I ordered from S.O.G several times and received excellent service.
We have a members report from Dave
Berry on the 9mm Luger barrel for the Super:
1. Received in about 5 days after phone order. (good service)
2. Barrel appears well made (stainless steel) doesn't look cheesey at all. Well machined and nice rifling. I ordered the standard (non-threaded) barrel.
3. Drops right in with no fitting (Star Super).
4. Shoots SAME point of Impact as my largo loads (15 yards). No sight adjustment necessary!
5. Pretty cool to look down the tube of my Super and not see a bore full of craters. (actually my Largo barrel isn't that bad, but it still looks quite different).
6. Functioned very well using existing mags. Had 2 hangups (feeding) with about 125 rounds of ammo. No ejection problems.
7. Swapped it back out for 9 largo when I got home!
Excellent service and excellent brass.
