Astra, Esperanza y Unceta, Campo-Giro, M1913-16, 9mmL, Spanish Military, leather holster.
Excellent, with small part refurbishment as noted. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. (Note: Safety is engaged by rotating to the rear when the hammer is down or in the half-cock position to prevent inadvertent contact with the positive firing pin. It will NOT securely engage with the hammer cocked.) VG+ holster. Leather shrinkage around the head of the cleaning rod prevents its being fully inserted into the pouch.
