NIB From 1985….



This just showed up at my FFL. Bought it off GB. NIB Astra A90 9mm from 1985. For the bargain price I payed for it, I am pretty happy.

Well that’s certainly a blast from the past.

Looks pretty clean. Have fun & post up a range report when you get to it.

I liked my A80's, A90, and A100's. All were decent guns. Only Astra I have left is my A75. Great little gun.

Back in the day, Interarms had it's fingers in the import market of a lot of decent firearms as I recall. That Astra is just plain cool.

I remember going to gun shows back in 1985 , those were the GOLDEN YEARS of shows, lots of interesting guns available , including surplus ammo and guns

that was a good year
