Description:

Introduced in 1927, the Astra 900 closely emulated the style and function of the Mauser 1896 Broomhandle, with both finding great sales success in China. Blade front and 1,000 meter tangent rear sights, with the "P in shell" proof on the right side of the barrel, chamber and frame, and the three line Astra address and patent date on the side plate over a set of Chinese markings. A large ring hammer is present, with niter blue safety and trigger, and a set of 12-groove grips. A China War Memorial Medal (a Nationalist/ROC decoration for veterans of World War II/2nd Sino-Japanese War) is included.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 98% of the original blue finish, showing some light handling marks and edge wear overall, along with vivid niter blue on the small parts. The grips are excellent, with some light dents and minor verdigris buildup. Mechanically excellent.
