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 Cadix was a popular series of revolvers produced by Astra starting from 1958, which were available chambered in .22 LR, .32 S&W and .38 Special.
They were also available in different finishes and barrel lengths from 2″ to 6″.
At the time Astra was making high quality copies of Smith & Wesson revolvers using Smith & Wesson manufacturing processes and practices, and the Cadix range are therefore considered well built and reliable firearms.
The Astra Cadix in .22 LR is a close copy of the Smith & Wesson Model 35 target revolver, except that it has a 9 shot cylinder instead of just a 6 shot.
These guns are good quality and value for money, and are very shootable.
This gun is in fair used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
It has a fair amount of light surface rust on the finish all over the gun, which can easily be removed.
The original wooden grips are still perfect.
It comes in its original cardboard box and include the original manual.
The Astra Cadix is a great, fun gun for simple target shooting and plinking at the range, and is also an excellent tool for teaching handgun shooting and fundamentals of basic marksmanship to young or beginner shooters.
