    Astra a-75

    Anyone have one of these ? is there a way to shorten the trigger pull ? It's a great little carry gun . Ijust wish the trigger pull was a tad shorter . I had a .40 but now have a lightweight 9mm for carrying at work . I prefer steel frame but either way it's a good shooter and is not much bigger than a KEL TEC PF- 9 . In fact I would put it up against any of those KT's

    OK, lets have a trigger lightening contest.


    Sorry that I can't be more helpful with this other than making wise cracks.

    The A-75 40 cal was my first carry gun. I traded an Auto Ordinance 1911 for it. I carried it for about a year before going to a lighter gun. It now resides in my night stand with a flashlight for home defense. Not sure about being able to shorten the trigger pull on it. The guns are no longer available, so if you mess it up, you may not be able to get replacement parts for it.

    I have an A-100 in 9mm. First pistol I ever owned. Basically a Sig226 knock off from Spain. I've put thousands of rounds through it. I've had to replace the decocking lever (broke) and also the feed ramp (the arms built into the feed ramp which hold the take down lever cracked). It's a solid gun, but I fear that the next time something breaks on it that will be it for the gun - EAA in Florida is no longer stocking parts for them and replacement parts are hard to find and pricey.

    Although not my EDC, my KelTec's have been with me for over 5 years...always go boom, and never a problem.
    KT's service is top notch...how is the service on yours?

    I ask that respectfully, of course.
