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.
This gun is in very good to excellent used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
Its blued finish is still excellent with only some very light wear around the muzzle, and very few, tiny, light scratches on the barrel (almost indiscernible).
The original wooden grips have a few very slight scratches.
It comes in its original cardboard box with original manual and cleaning brush.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, but is too large for ever day carry.
This firearm is also suitable for hunting due to its powerful cartridge and long barrel.

- IDPA – Revolver division
