Manufactured from 1958 to 1969 with a total production of about 11,400. This model is similar to the Model 600, but with an external hammer and loaded chamber indicator. The top front of the slide is marked with the Astra sun burst logo and the rear is marked with the three-line model and address. Proofmarks on the right rear of the frame and slide, and matching number on the underside of the slide. The number "17" is hand marked in permanent marker ahead of the triggerguard and on both magazines. The ribbed black plastic grips are branded with the Astra logo and "CONDOR" on each side. A matching number box is included, with a merchant mark for W. Glaser of Zurich, Austria inside the lid, manual, extra magazine, cleaning rod, and a plastic sleeve with Astra markings.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 98% plus of the original blue finish, showing some light scratches and a few small areas of edge wear. The grips are also excellent, with a few light scratches. The sleeve has some tears and holes in the vicinity of the hammer and rear sight, while the box is very fine, with mild wear and scuffing concentrated along the edges and on the contact points with the pistol. Mechanically excellent.
