Astra 300

Post by Calfed »

I just glommed this Astra 300 as a companion to my Astra 600. It is currently cooling its heals at my FFL and looks almost new.

More pics and a range report when I pick up

Congrats, that's Gorgeous - I've seen a few out there but the prices always climb out of my reach.
I hope the 300 shoots as well as the 600's do!!

You done good Calfed. Hard to find one that nice. Is it .380 or .32?

Thanks, guys. The lighting in the auction pictures makes the bluing look light, but it is actually quite dark and shiny.

Indy, I think the slide locks back. I'll let you know for sure when I pick it up.

RWS, it is .380.

I picked up a Astra 4000 which is about like yours, was real disappointed that it did not Lock open.. But yours is a real War Pistol...

I have a 600 and this one is like a 3/4 scale 600.
