Our Assessment: The Star Model PD is sort of in-between the Colt Lightweight Commander and the Officer’s Model in size. At 25 oz., it is just about the right size for concealed carry, especially if you like single action pistols, and would also make a great gun for home protection. This pistol doesn’t look like it was shot a lot, and is in Great condition. You can’t buy this model anymore, so you may not find another like it in such good condition.
