I have this M45 Star now & someday hope to own a Star PD.
The M45 is the .45 caliber version of the Firestar series. It is similar in most respects to the M3 and M40 pistols, but is slightly larger in all dimensions to acomodate the larger cartridge. Few or no parts are interchangeable between the two frame sizes.
The slide of the M45 has, as far as I can tell, always been of the slab-sided design, and is polished on the flats. Some like Mikes Starfire came in Starvel Nickle plated. :happy:
