Astra made the Colt, JR under contract all right...but in Spain. They are marked "Made in Spain".

Some later Colt Jr pistols were made in the US under contract to Colt after the Gun Control Act of 1968 stopped importation of such guns. Colt contracted FIE to continue to make them from Spanish parts for several years. They would not have been marked "Made in Spain".

I think my colt jr was made is usa; a later model. Incidently, i found on the internet it was subject to a recall and colt confirmed this by phone 4 years ago and i shipped it to colt. It was corrected although over 40 years old.

Thanks.
That is why I said “AIUI”. I was not certain whether it was Italy or Spain.

Not great pics but this is my favorite. Because a) its sexy b) I got it CHEAP c) it shoots nice d) its in great condition for a 1968 Pistol
Got it before it was C&R but celebrated its C&R entry last year
