Hello,
About 18-20 yrs. back I purchased a pair of Astra Constables. One in .22LR and the other in .380. Does Astra still import guns? Was the Constable a decent gun? I have never fired either of them. They appear well made.
Thanks

Astras were manufactured by Unceta Y Cia, in Spain and imported by Interarms until 1992. They are now imported by EAA (European, American Arms).
I've never owned or shoot one so I can not comment of their quality.

The Constable .380 I had worked OK and was accurate enough. For some reason, I just didn't care for it.
