Does the Astra Constable.380cal Pistol from 1954 have a Free Floating Firing Pin?????
 
I have an Astra Constable .380cal semiautomatic pistol from 1954 i have not yet done a 100% Disassembly of the pistol. I love this little gun but i was just wondering what the type of firing pin in it is Free Floating or Spring Loaded those are the only types that exist right??????????

What are the Dangers of a Spring Loaded Firing Pin??????????

I know that in a gun with a Free Floating Firing Pin it is possible for a slamfire to happen.

Helpful Answers are GREATLY APPRECIATED.

According to the schematic I found at Numich, the firing pin does not "free float", but has a spring.
