Parts are hard to find everywhere for the Star B pistols.
May have problems finding anyone willing to ship internationally. Guns and parts are prohibited in many cases without licensing and import/export expenses.
You might be able to find one in Canada just as easily and less expensively.

This is the reason I do not own a Star B. A nice gun while it works, but ...

Check Gun Broker, but the seller probably won't ship to Canada or maybe they can.

Thanks everyone. I’m going to try Apex Gun Parts. I have a friend in Minnesota that I can ship to and they will mail to Canada.

Tell us about owning a handgun in Canada, if you'd be so kind.

Check apex for sure. JG has some BM parts that might be interchangeable with yours. https://www.jgsales.com/-c-388_1229.html

ITAR and export regulations are a real pain and many retail dealers in the US simply don't want to bother with all the red tape.

Century would be the only other place that might have what you're looking for.

The Model A should have the same parts mentioned.
The BS is basically the same as the B, but I believe by the time the BS came out (1968) they had switched the magazine catch to a 1911-style retained by a camming screw. The earlier Model A and B have the push-button screwing directly into the catch, which is a straight bar on the right side. And can be a giant PITA to remove.

The Modelo Super (A) and Super B are much different as noted.

Regardless you need to be careful what you're asking for and know the proof date (year) of your pistol.

There are several people on gunboards.com that have Star parts.

Typical Model B catch (WW2 era to early post-war) is this what you have?
