    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.
