About the Gun

This heavy all steel pistol was the standard issue sidearm in the Spanish Army during the Spanish Civil War and also saw service in Germany during World War II. Astra continued private production until 1950 even though in 1946 the Spanish military adopted the Star Model A as the standard sidearm. Spanish military inventories were sold to civilian wholesalers between 1956 and 1965. A total of around 106,175 pistols were produced. Models produced for the German Luftwaffe during WWII garner a premium price three times that of their civilian counterparts.

About the Cartridge

Originated in Spain in about 1913 for use in the Campo-Giro and Astra 400 pistols, this cartridge is a variation of the earlier Bergman-Bayard cartridge developed in 1901 for the German Bergmann Mars pistol. It is effectively a lengthened version of the 9 mm Luger.
