Starvel finish, EXCELLENT condition, 3 mags, 9mm. I bought a defender a few months ago to replace it and I am having a hard time coming up with a price. It still looks new, and while I like it very much, my Defender has replaced it.

About $300 (give or take $50) is what I see them going for here.

A 9mm Firestar will bring $250 unless you get lucky.

    I had one of these pistols.  They are very high quality (Spanish guns tend to be excellent) but the problem is that they are no longer imported, and neither are parts or factory mags.  For the most part, I don't think mags are really that tough to get at gun shows though.
    You Firestar is very well fitted and reliable.  The guys who say that it's only worth about $250.00 are probably about right, unfortunately.  In their "heyday" I think they sold for about $400.00 new.
    For what you can get for it vs. how nice these pistols are, you may be better off to keep it.  I carried my M43 for awhile, but found it to be kinda heavy for a carry piece, despite its compact size.  That's because there are no plastics or alloys used on them.

I want to say I paid $299 for it new. It will shoot circles around many of the smaller 9mms on the market today. Works exactly like a 1911, but with an ambi safety. Only thinking about selling it as I bought a Colt Defender as my CCW primary weapon. And yes, it is heavy, but very comfortable to fire, I hated the Kahr my boss had, not even in the same class it seemed. Was totally not impressed with the accuracy or the slow follow up shots. His was a .40 but I was shooting +P stuff myself.
