I'm looking at an A100 .45 auto. I like the feel and the price seems reasonable at about $245. Has anyone had experience with this pistol?
Accuracy, reliability? ETc.
Thanks,
Rob

    The Astra A100? If so, they are good guns. Sort of a Sig clone.

    Astra has been out of business since the 90's, ( they went belly up ). Price is good, maybe to good? Make sure it's functional before buying it. Keep in mind parts might be a problem, if it has to be repaired. Extra magazines also.

    Will take advantage of the opportunity to try it out with some military ball ammo as well as some SWC that work well in my 1911.
    Thanks for the advice.

    I have one and although I haven't shot it a lot, have had no problems with it at all.
    As mentioned, a Sig clone. Seems to be a well made auto.
    I got an extra magazine from gun parts corp.


    Thanks---Peabo

    Took the A100 out today. Function was perfect. Didn't check for accuracy. Feels great, bore is fine and overall condition I would judge at about 95%. Price is $265.00
    I decided I really don't need another .45though.
    If anyone's interested let me know and I can send the dealer specifics.
    He's not an Astra fan, hence the price, but it looked great to me.
