  1. More like million+, many made for French contract in WWI, as well as for Italy, Russia, and private sales into 20’s.Quality varies widely from some that are as good as any Colt or S&W, while others very poor.(Supposedly design for 50rd life).Magazines have 2 letter code, other sources to help you match mag to gun.Trivia: Hemingway’s character Lt. Henry, in Farewell to Arms, carries one, an Astra.Check if yours has French acceptance stars on heal of grip, by back of magazine well.

  2. Its was issued to ambulance corps by the french mags hard to come by and work best if made by same maker as the pistol I paid 15 dollars for mine its accurate and reliable shoots +p ammo not bad for a 100 yearold gun

    perhaps used in combat?! i think if i made it across no mans land and jumped in a german trench id put my rifle on my shoulder and pull out my .32

  4. Thank you

  5. worst breakdown i have ever seen….take the barrel out all the way with it locked back then it will come out easy without all the jabbing you did…..lmao btw ruby .32 all day accuracy

  6. Anyone’s extractor seem to not eject live or spent casings/rounds?

  7. This looks just like the FN 1903 and also a tt33 which also borrows some designs as the fn 1903…..good video as usual 🙂

  8. I have one of these that seems to be missing the front part of the firing pin. Any idea how to find one?

  9. I would say this is a viable pocket pistol….but I don’t see how the hell the French chose it as a duty pistol….(.32 ACP)

  10. by the way mine is stamped AG…Francisco Arizmendi/ Arizmendi y Goenaga – French Military code stamp AG

  11. Thanks for the information on an Old Pistol we’ve had around for a LONG time Ha!Ha! Was passed down and I ended up with it and am very glad I found out what we had .Guess I’ll take our Ruby out and see how it shoots , now that I know how she comes down . Very glad there’s Guys like you around to answer my questions now that there’s no one older than me in the family to go to with Questions .

  12. Only five shots?

  13. i was wondering if anyone knows where the best place is to get a magazine for this gun…i was given theis gun by my father in law who got it from his father who apparently got it off of a dead German soldier in WWII…means alot to my wife and me but some how the magazine was not with it email me at thank you so much…

  14. a few hundred easy…..I’d guess 400-700 depending….they weren’t exactly rare as they were dumped on the U.S. market in the 1920’s after the war. They were the "poor man’s Colt 1903" to me the value isn’t in dollars, its in owning a piece of unknown history.

  15. Hello MrEdgar49 I have a gun that is close to yours I believe yours is the same model I was wondering what brand it is and the year thank you.

    great video i love small guns

  17. @avguidottijr It’s interesting that you mention the TT because the trigger immediately brought that to mind.

  18. my slide will not come of it has a tuff snag HELP

  19. Good day MrEdgar49,
    It’s true that rotating the barrel to remove it should be clockwise (facing the barrel end). However, you had difficulty in removing the slide because the barrel is still in it. It has to be taken right after your have rotated it clockwise. This method has been indicated in every available disassembly procedure from the internet. I apologize but there’s a French guy in the other video who did it correctly.

  20. Thanks for the info. I’ll go back and try that.

  21. Crap I Meant to add that the resemblence.shows between the fn and this
