Want to see the strange Spanish Astra 900 Stocked Pistol?

What appears to be a Mauser C96 Broomhandle is certainly not after a closer look. It is instead a Spanish Astra 900 Stocked Pistol.

Forgotten Weapons tells us all about the unique-looking firearm.

Ian from Forgotten Weapons got a chance to take a look at this copycat pistol which was originally made by Astra but ended up being sold in China. This pistol was imported out of China and refurbished to its pristine shape as a shooter or collectable.

This curio and relic pistol is indeed quite an interesting concept that has since fallen from popularity in more modern times. Stocked pistols just don’t have the range as a real rifle or carbine has. They sure are incredibly cool, though
