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 Astra 960 is a 6-shot, double-action, medium-frame .38 Special revolver manufactured with 4” and 6” barrels.
It uses the same frame as the Astra 357, and it was made for police departments and private security agencies who wanted a robust revolver, chambered in a non-magnum caliber.
This particular example is unusual as it has ‘.357 Magnum’ marked on the barrel, while most Astra 960s are all chambered in .38 Special.
This gun is in very good used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
Its blued finish is perfect with no discernible marks (there is a line in the cylinder however).
This gun seems to have been barely ever used.
The original wooden grips are slightly scratched and scuffed.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, but is possibly too large (heavy) for ever day concealed carry, unless for a large framed person.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports:
- IDPA – Revolver division
- ICORE – Classic division
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun & Stock revolver
- STEEL CHALLENGE
