Price check on Star Model B

My local Gander Mountain has a Star Model B in the case for $115. The gun has considerable finish wear and some internal wear. The bore looks good though and there is no sign of abuse. It has one magazine.

How's the price for the gun in this shape? It would be purely a range toy, most likely.

Oh, and the sales staff weren't sure if it was 9mm Largo or 9mm Parabellum. It does have a faint "9mmP" marking, but one of the clerks thought the mag looked like a Largo mag. Obviously, if it's Largo, I won't buy the gun. Besides that single marking, anything else I can use to confirm the caliber?

Does anyone have a source for mags for these?

B's are Nato. Supers are the ones they are thinking about IMHO.

Not too bad a price if it works... get them to let you test fire it.

Describe the takedown/disasembly and I can tell you if it's a B or Super.

The clerk took it down. Looked like it was standard 1911 all the way, as far as I could tell. He did have a heck of a time getting it back together though. He must have sent the spring and bushing flying about half a dozen times.
