ordered a 960 last week to use as a range beater. came in today and WOW, this thing is BIG for a .38. thought it would be the size of maybe a s+w mod. 19 but its more like a 686. this is a nice revolver, pinned bbl, recessed chaimbers, fully adjustable sights, adjustable main spring and locks up great. but she is big. i know this has been ask before but... are these things rated for +P ? cut down to 3inch or a tad less and this old girl just may see some carry time!!

Actually, the Astra 960 was patterned after the S&W Model 28 N-Frame. I have an Astra 960 and I like it a great deal. Also, I have the owners manual which states that the gun shoots only .38 Special ammo-but, .38 Special +P isn't indicated at all!

I also have a 960 and I'll shoot +P with it all day long. The thing is a very well-made beast of a revolver. I don't think that any run-of-the-mill +P will harm that gun.

Note: Keep in mind that the above is only my personal opinion so proceed at your own risk....

It will be fine to use any 38 Special ammo ever manufactured in it.
