Actually online there are many places that sell parts for Astra firearms. My step son has an A-100 and it is a real dependable and accurate gun. I do agree $270 ....a little high for that.Maybe it is just me, but $250 - $270 (for a hand selected one) seems a bit high for a long out of production pistol that you'll likely never be able to get parts for. It also doesn't bring anything special to the table, feature-wise. But, being an Astra, not everyone else will have one, so there is that "unique-ness" factor.
Sums it up pretty well. The last model was the A-100. The A-80 was the first and highly regarded. Astra actually made several good pistols before they folded. The SA A-70 and DA/SA A-75 were excellent compacts. My shooting partner used his A-75 when he qualified for his CCL. Very reliable and it was in .40 S&W.I have shot the A-80 and own the A-90,they worked flwlessley,very dependable,clone of the Sigs,I would not hesitate on this buy get some extra mags if you can .
