    Just got today an Astra Model 4000 Falcon, 380ACP. These have the tubular slide look like the earlier Astra 300, 400 and 600; but it has an exposed hammer rather than the internal hammer. These were made in limited numbers from 1956 through the mid 1980s, with 1956 being the prototype year, and full production starting in 1957. This one is year coded "C1" which makes it a 1957. Been looking for one of these for years.

    The Falcon - these things similar in appearance to the Condor? Remember seeing one of those at a show with an $800 price tag.....

    Yup - similar to the Condor, but the Condor is even more rare, and I can see them running a higher price tag.
