Unusual artisanal Chinese pistol that loosely resembles a Star A Carbine, this one a single action blow back with an extended barrel, fixed front sight and missing extractor/rear sight. Engraved spur hammer, missing safety. Nonsense logos on each side of slide and on upper portion of wood panels, left panel missing lower screw. Butt magazine release. Unmarked magazine, very similar to the Star, with seven indicator holes and fixed base.
Chinese Arsenal, Star Copy, with 7.63mm Extended Barrel.
Well worn, now mottled in gray with only hints of original finish. Missing extractor/rear sight, safety, grip screw, as previously noted. Hammer will not engage on full cock. Comparable condition grips with splits and losses as photographed. Dark bore with discernable rifling. Sold as a historical relic. ABSOLUTELY NOT TO BE FIRED! NOT TO BE FIRED! NOT TO BE FIRED!
