Standard configuration, late production Astra M900 with 5.5 inch screw-in barrel and slip-in tangent rear sight graduated from 50-1000. Short extractor and two lug firing pin. Large ring hammer and full frame. Sideplate with three line address that includes caliber, patent date 1928 and company location in Guernica, Spain. Full serial number on frame above grip. Right side marked with the automatic pistol proof on barrel, receiver, and right side of frame whose markings include the Eibar house proof and a year code “E” reflecting production in 1932. Serrated wood panels and lanyard ring. Major parts rust blued; most small parts fire blued; bolt, hammer, and small transverse bolts in the white. Disassembly shows all-matching components.
Absolutely spectacular Astra M900 Broomhandle, all-matching, with vivid fireblue small parts and perfect bore.
Virtually new with no sharp edge wear. Perfect front and back straps. Top of rear sight and bolt stop with just the faintest edge wear. Left grip with a few superficial dings at bottom as photographed. Mirror bore. Perfect manual mechanics. It would be very difficult to upgrade this Astra M900 short of finding one with a matching stock.
