Astra A-100 9mm Tabletop Review
Shooting. As I said in the video I normally don't do gun reviews. This is very much an on the fly unscripted ad lib review. In other words its not polished or extensively edited. So lots of ums and uhs stumbling to think where I was going with it and the points I wanted to get in about it. Also talking above an AC unit that had kicked in as this was an outdoor tabletop. This is not a gun channel but a bushcraft channel however guns play a role in hunting and defense. In this case I was asked to review my old carry pistol from a subscriber called switchpod on Gunstreamer.com. There are not many if any reviews of Astra guns on the web. The Spanish gun company went out of business in 1997 and merged with Star. The A-100 was produced from 1990-2006. Similar to the Sig P-226 although some think the P-228 however due to the front of the slide being shorter on the P-228 than the P-226, I differ on that point. The barrel is 3.7 inches and it does have the Browning style linkless locking. Other noted changes from the Sig P226 is the take down lever is on the right side rather than on the left side with the decocker and slide catch. The outer chamber of the barrel is rounded rather than square. As you can see from the video the pistol will fire with the mag removed so there is no mag disconnect safety. None of the parts including the mags are interchangeable as far as I know. As noted on the slide lettering this pistol was distributed by EAA or European American Armory. It cost me $350 brand new back in the 90s.
Maybe I will do a shooting video of the A-100 sometime later.
