Star Firestar M 42/43/45 [Automatic Pistol]:
The Firestar was the gun that pretty much got the trend for small framed full powered combat guns going in the mid eighties. The original gun was a 9 mm single action, but in the years it also became available in .40 S&W (again, the first smallframed gun in this caliber) and in .45 ACP. It is a reliable and solidly build gun, with a steel frame, which greatly helps increases its durability. These features have given the gun a good reputation, which it deserves.
The Firestars magazine holds seven rounds in 9 mm and .40 S&W, and six rounds in .45 ACP.
