threaded, 9mm luger conversion, super star barrels?

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

threaded, 9mm luger conversion, super star barrels?

Post by saltydecimator » Sun Mar 18, 2012 8:26 pm

numrich has outta stock 9mm luger barrels for the super star, wondering if anyone can clue me into getting a conversion barrel for the super star( which is 9 mm largo, almost 9x23)....

the surplus largo ammo is corrosive and it makes the firing pin stick, so i would like to stay away fromit. and have i been wanting a 9mm 191! style gun, so this is convenient...

it is a fallacy to run 9x anything else through the 9 largo barrel is bad juju, and a definite no-no
its quiet time!

If on a budget, why not buy a Armscore/RIA 1911 in 9 mm?

Star parts are hard to find these days if yours breaks.

Please satisfy my curiosity. Are you saying that you are taking an intact Luger and "West Coast Customizing"
it?

For us purists, even a crappy intact Luger is an historical arm that really should be left alone.

He's talking about the caliber 9mm (as some people like to tack Luger on the end,) not a Luger pistol. Rather a Star 9mm Largo.
