Do y'all believe I can find a local gunsmith who is knowledgeable enough to work on it ? If not,what do you suggest?
Just clean the Bleep out of it like you would a Glock filled with the crud of being shot 10K rounds without benefit of cleaning.
Most of these were rode hard and put away wet, mostly since people could...as they were pretty darn reliable.
The Star 30 (also the 31), were one of the first "Wonder-nines" of the 80's...15+1 capacity and ran like a sewing machine
Note the similarity to current
SIG design on those 30/31's...the similarity is no accident...SIG noticed 'em...
darn fine, but cheap Spanish labour meant we got better pistols than could be bought/produced here at the same price for many years.
I made the mistake of selling my 30-P some years ago when I was short of cash...worst mistake I ever made.
I later missed a chance to get it back, as I saw it at a pawn shop, but was cash-low at the time as well...
On the upside, I've still got two spare mags for it
So I know eventually, I'll find another one day!
Oh, and as stated above...don't use +P or +P+ in 'em unless you wanna wear it out fast...or worse.
