I know Sarco has gotten a few in, but they have been playing phone dodge for weeks now.
Anybody else?

My first question is, "Why?"

Hate to hear that. I was thinking about buying one of their C&R Super B's.

I've never shot a star model B, BM, or B Super. Is there something wrong with them?
Looks to me like a 1911 w/o the grip safety to me.

They're not generally well regarded. I'm interested in the why part, too.

Star BM is awesome. I have no experience with the B or BKM but the BM is nicely sized if you have medium sized hands or smaller. I have noticed some people with larger hands will tend to shoot to the right due to the way it sits in the hand and naturally points. Recoil is mild due to the full steel const. and the fact its 9mm. There is no grip safety like on 1911's but many people don't like a grip safety anyhow. Price on a BM should be low 200s which is a deal. The trigger on mine is almost as nice and crisp as it is on my Kimber Custom II for 1/4 the price. The disassemmbly is easy (easier than 1911) and I have had no malfunctions in over 1000 rds. Groups are around 3 in at 15 yds.
Downsides- Mags are expensive /not plentiful. Some parts are cheap, but not always eay to find.
heavy.

I've never heard anyone say anything bad about them. Does anyone who has actually owned one have any bad juju to pass on?
