It was produced by Star Bonifacio Echeverria, S.A. from 1972 to 1992 and was used by the police in Spain as well as other Latin American countries. It features fixed front sights and drift-adjustable rear sights, an 8 round magazine (Sig P225 mags can be altered to fit as well), a left-side safety, mag release, and slide lock. They come with a magazine disconnect that can be easily accessed by removing a grip panel.
