Astra .25 cal modle 200 semi auto pocket pistol

To whom it may concern:
I am posting this pistol in this catagorie, I had the good luck of winning this pistol in an auction, the only thing I do know is this firearm was produced between 1929 and 1945 it has production marks such as the letter "p" and a shield with a knights helment above.
It has about 80 percent of the bluing missing, and the white hard rubber pistol hand grips are warped. my question is, where can I find the original hand grips for this pistol?

Try www.gungrip.com or www.gunpartscorp.com. They will run around $25.00. They will probably be repro, not factory, but should work OK.

Your Astra model 200 in the condition you describe and with new grips would be in the $100.00 to maybe $150.00 on a good day.

There should be a date code stamped near the proof marks (hemeted shield) that can be determined from the table at: http://star-firearms.com/firearms/proof.shtml.

Wirh 80 per-cent of the finish gone, to 150, it would have to be a very good day.
I've heard the term used before but I've always wondered, How do you win anything at an auction?

Astra .25cal semi auto pistol

Thank you much guys I found the age between 1929 and 1931, and with much thought, you are right who really wins anything at an auction, when the grips are warped and having to but new ones, but thats fine with me it dose fire.
