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 4″ barrel, and aftermarket Pachmayr rubber grips.
This gun is in fair used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
There is some wear to the blued finish on the barrel (especially the muzzle), cylinder and front of the frame.
Aftermarket Pachmayr rubber grips are still in good condition.
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
