These pistols are service pistols & have been graded by the importer C.A.I "Good" Surplus Some may exhibit some holster wear on the finish in addition some may have minimal dings and scratches (see photos)
When researching we were unable to find any consistent info regarding the 28DA. Most sources have it existed but with no additional info.
Some sources suggest the DA is "Double Action" but STAR Used the prefix for who it was issued to and or material (P - POLICE / M - MILITARY / MI - INDIA CONTRACT / K - ALLOY FRAME) 1. The source suggests the 28DA was an Israeli Contact (Unable to verify)
From a hands-on inspection, the 28DA looks to be the predecessor to the near-identical 30M. Same length / Steel frame as the 30M. Minor cosmetic differences: Grips & no groves along with the backstrap/ Mechanically the only difference looks to be the ejector.
Technically, the Star 30M is an updated version of the earlier Star 28M pistol. Star 30M is a recoil-operated, locked-breech pistol, that uses Browning-designed, linkless locking (High Power-type), with two lugs on the barrel and a shaped cam under the chamber that interacts with the slide stop axis inside the frame.
Star 30M features a double-action trigger with slide-mounted ambidextrous safety that locks firing ping only, leaving trigger and hammer unaffected in "safety on" position, thus allowing the gun to be "dry-fired" (however, this is unsafe and is not recommended). Star 30M also features magazine safety, which disables firing when the magazine is not in position. Another safety feature is a loaded chamber indicator. Star 30M features internal slide rails (like the SIG P-210 or CZ-75). The frame and slide are made from steel (the aluminum-alloy frame version of the Star 30M is called Star 30PK and is somewhat lighter, as one can expect). The front sight is fixed, the rear sight is dovetailed and thus can be adjusted for windage.
