Re: astra pistols
Own a Astra A 75 in 45acp.compact,reliable,but cobly ,made like a English motorcycle.More tool marks or nicks than a Colt or any other name brand gun.Took off the wobly R.S.ami saftey lever & replaced with a snug washer & pin,. Bought all xtra springs,extractor,ejector slide stop when they folded.They sent the wrong fireing pin,too short. I replaced the recoil spring with a 22lb.from a CZ compact & a F.Pin spring from the same, only shortened by trial & error.(Wolff Springs) Wolffs heaviest is a 17.5 .lb for the A75 in 9mm or 40S&W.Chamber is .468 front & .471 back resulting in slight fireing pin drag mark on primer.Ed Brown bbl.467 &.468.clipers are off on inside measurements,but you get the picture.Cheap nickle polished plating on frame & barrel peeled like an onion,Frame thicker & holding.Having them & all small parts done in Metalife.( same as Armaloy)I prefer to carry it to my custom 45, colts,S&W & other revolvers & guns.It, not a gun to be shot a lot,1000 rounds, its tested,Not thousands like a Springfield.Except for plating,inexpensively made,not cheap.they were 80 yrs.in business!One jam when new & dirty at 100 rounds.Don,t target with +p either,who does?
