A starred receiver does NOT affect the weapon in any way. SA never put out junk weapons. Well...............................there was the early '03 SA bolt action, but that's another story.
As to value, there are guys like me who look for starred weapons cause we just want one in the collection. I also collect the TD receivers & am looking for a starred receiver.
Other guys think they are less than perfect. SFAIK starred TD's were not issue to the regular Army after rebuild.
If you are looking to fill your collection, then the star is a must have. Hinda like having at least one carbine. Otherwise, treat them as you would any BP weapon. Value is what the buyer is willing to pay for the piece.
