Re: star made in spain 45 auto version of 1911
Welcome to TFF J tice! I have shot one that my friend has and they are good shooters. The problem lies in the fact that parts are not interchangeable with true 1911's. Star has been out of business for awhile now and trying to find any replacement buffers is a pain; there are a few aftermarket parts available though. Slide wear on the alloy frames can be an issue if you plan on shooting thousands of rounds through it.
Overall, you got a good gun, shoot it and have fun! I wouldn't recommend shooting +P loads in it though, that will just decrease slide life.
