I have owned the Astra A-80 in .45 cal for 20 years now. Love the gun, how it feels in the hand, how it looks. Trigger pull is fantastic. But....after a few rounds, I assume the barrel heats up and the gun looses it's accuracy. Then it's not fun to shoot any more. Has any one experienced the same? This is one gun I refuse to trade.

Sig mags and parts are not compatible. There may be one or two parts that would work but why spend time and money on trial and error.

See below where spare parts ARE available from EAA. Aftermarket mags are also out there- made by Magtech which hold 17+1. I see them all the time at gun shows also plenty of 10 rd mags and they usually sell out of hi caps in the first few hours and leave.

BTW- a new recoil spiring turns this in to a tight brand new feeling gun $15 dollars well spent and the Hogue Slip on cant be beat for $10. A guy in south Europe on always on Gunbroker.com has some original factory parts but they are international and pricey (and he has non-plastic grips). see my post below please.

you will have to shop & compare on the net for the best prices. I am certain you can find mags at a show. I would recommend have an idea of what the going rate for the mags are first though.
