Can anybody help me find parts for a Star M43?
I lost the ball bearing that locks the safety in the selected position.
There IS reason to save old broken drillbits!I took mine apart last night (carefully ) to look at the little pin again. It is about 3/16 s long, but the part I forgot is that the last half of it is very small diameter to fit inside that little spring. Like a guide rod. I dont think a replacement would have to have the small diameter part, but it will have to be a bit shorter than the OAL of the original.
These pistols are quite heavy, but mine is the M40 (.40 S&W), and the extra weight is appreciated. It still has a pretty hefty flip, though.
Well, actually I was having second thoughts about using something as hard as a High-Speed drillbit.I'm glad you got it fixed. The only thing I would watch for is that the pin, being made of a soft nail, might wear prematurely.
Glad it worked out,
