The Model 31 constituted a major modification/improvement of the Model 30. Mechanical differences include a change to an ambidextrous (though still slide-mounted) safety lever which is also extended (though still "backwards" in operation). The manual safety also adds a third selector position, which decocks the pistol. The extractor was once again modified; the Model 31â€™s extractor uses a shorter external bar with a smaller amount of rotation; the extractor springs are also beefed up (and are, in fact, the same springs as used on the Firestar). Barrel length is reduced (making the Model 31 a mid-sized pistol), but the barrel is heavy and of better-quality construction; it is also coned, which simplifies locking. Trigger pull is further lightened and smoothed, and the sights have also been further improved over those on the Model 30. Other changes include a change to stronger checkered polymer grip plates and a generally more ergonomic and partially-dehorned exterior. Though designed for Spanish military and police use, the Model 31 found its greatest sales in the Americas as a civilian pistol called the Starfire (and see the Model 30 notes above).
Model 31PK differs from the Model 31P in having a light-alloy frame. Four different safeties are incorporated:an ambidextrous safety, to block the firing pina half-cock safety,a magazine safety anda locking safety, which prevents firing until the full locking cycle is completed.In addition, a loaded-chamber indicator is provided: a red dot is displayed on the surface of the extractor when a round is chambered
