    The rarely seen Astra Terminator was a Snub nosed large frame 44 Magnum revolver, made in Spain, spec'd by and distributed by the famous John Jovino's Gun Shop in NY. Jovino was well known in 70's and 80's for chopping N frame Smiths to this same specification. Not only the shorter barrel but the grip frame is reduced to a Round Butt K frame size for better concealablity. This Astra uses K Round grips also.

    This gun is pretty nice, some signs of use, but pretty clean for being ~30 years old.
