Astra had been around for many years. not a huge lot of information about them i have found and it doesn't look like a lot of aftermarket support in parts od accessories either.
i have an older Astra A100 in 9mm and it's a great little pistol. very solidly built and is dang near a Sig P226 copy, but none of the parts will interchange. about the only thing i have found for mine are the magazines. i have the original 17 round mag, but could only find the post-ban 10 round mags a few years ago.
in DA, my trigger is very heavy, about 14 lbs. heavy! but only about 4 lbs. in SA. which is not bad since it doesn't have a safety and just a decocker. on mine i simply lightly polished the trigger surfaces and left it at that.
