Astra Model 200

I acquired this little Astra "gunsmith special" basket case from Flow.

When it arrived, I discovered that not only is it missing the extractor, but also the firing pin & spring. Meh. It's hard to tell just looking at the slide, the loaded chamber indicator makes it confusing. Anyway, I figured I'd put together the receiver portion since the firing pin is in the slide and could be easily addressed once I get the parts.

The Astra Model 200 is a fairly complex little pistol, there are three safeties (grip, mag, and safety lever). If it were a larger pistol, reassembly would be a piece of cake; but the reality was it's a real PITA. I replaced some of the bent pins (par for the course on a Spanish pistol) and then used a lot of slave pins and a pair of angled hemostats to get it all together.

Here's the loaded chamber indicator:

Completed gun. (Not sure why the image is sideways here, it posts fine elsewhere.) I'm planing to get that white-ish paint off the grips.

I totally forgot to send you the tracking info! Sorry about that. Glad you got it back together. How was it on a scale of J22 to Galesi?
