woo hoo! I love it! Thanks John!

I'm trying to find my scanner, so maybe I can post a pic or two soon. (I recently moved and am still trying to unpack everything and finish off two more rooms in the house) So as soon as I find my scanner I'll post.

John,
Is it true that the Astra 400 is a 9mm parabellum that is a blowback action? Quantrill

Quantrill,

Actually, while the 400 will fire 9x19, it's not designed for it. The gun is really designed to shoot 9x23 (9mm Largo), and .38ACP. Although .38Super is the same size case, it is too high pressure to shoot in the Astra. From what I've been told, if you shoot much 9x19 in this gun, it'll ring the chamber and screw it up for the proper calibers.
