Item Description

FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:

Astra is a Spanish weapons manufacturer that was founded in 1908 and eventually closed in 1997.
In their more recent years they produced some economically priced but good quality and reliable  revolver models that were replicas of Colt, Ruger or Smith & Wesson.

The model 357 was one of their popular models that enjoyed fair distribution in the USA.
It is a simple, well-made revolver based off of a Smith & Wesson design, which is available in a variety of different calibers, barrel lengths and finishes.
They also have adjustable triggers and rear sights.

Astra 357s are good quality, work-horse revolvers that are good value for money if found in good condition.
This particular example has a 6″ barrel, making it particularly well suited to target shooting.
