I absolutely love my smith and wesson sigma .40. I have not a single complaint after I spent 12$ on eBay and 20 minutes to lighten the trigger pull

I've been really researching the star model b's and have not found a single bad review on them compared to the Arcus 94 I previously stated, which owners are saying it has a tendency to jam or feed bad. I think I am going to go with the star I just don't know which model lol

Depends on the barrel length you want. Longer barrel is longer sight radius and both equal better accuracy at distances. I like the BKM myself, but it's more commander sized I think. Whereas the Model B is more traditional 5"or so.

Here's a good site for info on star firearms, the direct link specifically for the Model B line...

No. 9mm, 9x19, 9mm Luger, 9mm NATO, 9mm parabellum are all the same.

I looked up and down that link and have narrowed down to either the bks or the super-b. From my understanding the bks is by starlight and distributed in America which I like and I also liked the more modern look but for my specifications (on the 1st and 2nd page) which would be better

I would do the super B. It has all the more modern things like magazine disconnect safety, which is mandatory in some states by the way. It also has the easy Takedown system which is a MAJOR plus for me. The Starlite may also have these, but the super B was the most up to date and modernized of the batch and that always means something to me.

You might also want to check out Sarco's parts Page and see if they carry spare parts for any of these. The last thing you want to do is buy something you can't fixshould something go wrong.

Don't get me wrong, a decent gunsmith can do just about anything, but cost difference can be astronomical!

I ran a Star BKS for about twenty years, good pistol never had any problems feeding it. A good friend of my dad needed a pistol, sure wish I had it back.
