    Here's a new arrival at my house from this weekend's gunshow, a nice Nazi marked Astra 300 in .380 (ok so it's 9mm Corto). The same guy had a 7.65 model, but those were more expensive and I decided a representative sample in .380 would be just fine.

    I took the gun to the range, but it's back now.

    Now THATS a nice looking Astra, they're definitely cuter before they grow up.

    300, huh? I'll have to remember that, I wouldn't mind....

    NO...I SOLD my Astra...I will NOT buy another one.

    Does it launch bushings, too? What do they use, a strut spring from a SUBcompact in the little ones not like the compact car ones they use in a REAL Astra?

    The spring in this one is much easier to handle than the spring in the 400, that one is a truck spring! I didn't launch this one when I stripped it... Now, if I find a nice 600, I'll have this line of pistols covered.
