The only thing with the A-75's (and the SA A-70) was that the Spanish spot heat treated their parts, so you will see wear on the steel parts.
The A-75 in .45ACP had the potential to be a real steal in the Market. It is too bad what happened to both Astra, Star, then finally Llama.
IPAR still makes some Astra and Star pistols, but there is no US distributor and you would have to contact them if you cannot find spare parts from Numrich or EAA.
I have an Astra A-70 in 9mm. Good little weapon IMO. Shoots to point of aim, functions reliably with HPs. So far, so good! My 2 cents.
