8/19/19 - This is an excellent, original Astra 300 that was part of the second contract order by the Nazi Army. This pistol was part of a batch that was delivered on April 1, 1944. There were only ~22,000 of this variation produced, with no waffenamt on the frame and chambered in 7.65mm. The original finish rates at about 97%, with minor edge wear in a few areas, and a spot of minor finish loss on the trigger guard and back strap. There are also a couple of scratches near the muzzle, likely from an attempt to remove the muzzle cap. Excellent bore and grips.
