    Hi all,
    Has anyone heard of a revolver made by Alfa (Made in Spain) in particular the Model .32 Hand Ejector? I just ran across a set of factory pearl grips in beautiful condition, and can't find anything on the revolver?... Any help would be appreciated.. Take care and God bless...cordell

    The only info I could find on an Alfa revolver was that it was made in Spain by Armero Especialistas, which translates as Gunsmith Specialists. Caliber was listed as .38 but not sure if that's .38 S&W or .38 Special.

    Alfa revolvers are made in the Czech Republic whilst Astras were made in Spain.

    There are two "ALFA" marked revolvers.
    The Czech guns and the Spanish made guns.
    The Czech guns are better quality than the Spanish made examples.
    That Spanish Alfa is likely in .38 long Colt caliber or .32 S&W , might be a .32 S&W Long depending on what day and who chambered it too,,,

    Alfa was a Spanish trade name used by Amero Especialististas Reunidas, Eibar.

    The Alfa revolver was a copy of the 1899 and 1905 pattern of Smith and Wesson and chambered in the .38 Long Colt Cartridge.

    It speculated that the Alfa revolvers were produced by Orueta Hermanos, Eibar
