Many Spanish pistols made for export to the U.S. or South America have the chamber countersunk for the .38 ACP rim and the breech face slightly enlarged as well. Those will fire both the 9mm Largo and the .38 ACP. The locked breech guns will also fire the .38 Super with no problem, but straight 9mm Largo pistols often will not accept the .38 ACP/Super case.

The .38 Super should not be fired in the blowback Astras, and especially not in the blowback Jo-Lo-Ar pistols which, IMHO, should not even be fired with 9mm Largo.
