To any one considering purchasing an air compressor: I own an Astra V-32 manufactured by a company called SCHIFAUER-PEK, in the Czech Republic. The US distributor is in Florida, and his name is Tont Tristram. I've owned this thing for about fifteen years now. I can say unequivocally that it was the absolute best purchase of anything that I've ever made in my life to date, save for a couple of my favorite firearms. The price (half that of a Bauer), the performance, and the durability has been outstanding. But most importantly, is the after sales service. Tony is the most reliable, personable, and sincere guy that a person could ever hope to do business with. His after sales care, all these years later, is second to none. I highly recommend this compressor, and Tony, to any one.
