    “Meh, wake me when they release it in .30M1 again.”

  2. Tam Says:


    You’re thinking of the later Automags from a different incarnation of AMT.

  3. Lyle Says:

    It will be interesting to see what they come up with.

    They’re polling people though, which I’ve always thought was something of a mistake. If you don’t know what you want your company to be, well, you should already, totally know. That’s the most polite way I can say it.

    Agreed Lyle.
    We have a motivational poster at work that says “The heart of innovation is finding out from your customer what he truly wants.”

    Bwaaaaahahahahahahahahahahaha! Ehhhhh.

    It will probably work out just like the bring-back of the Bren 10 did. Lots and lots of excitement… then wait wait wait… almost there… wait wait wait… almost there… any day now… then a fade into the void, and sadness because it COULD have been really cool, but was never quite finished.

    I could be wrong, but I don’t think so.

    The only obvious solution then, is for them to release the AutoMag in 10mm? /goof

    The world of giant semi-auto pistols is a narrow market, indeed. If you’ve never fired a .44 Auto Mag, you’re missing a treat.

    Which is why I’d be thrilled if one was in the rental bank at the local indoor shootery. But I just don’t have the application for using one, not nearly enough to justify the expense of adding one to the safe.

    Meanwhile, a S&W .44 Mountain Gun remains a carryable, albeit miserable to shoot, proposition.

    Still, long as people line up to buy Auto Mags and Desert Eagles, I’m glad. Just ’cause I don’t have a desire for ’em, doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the state(s) of the art they represent.

    Kind of like shooting a quality .50 BMG. Great fun, but I’ll take a borrowed or rented turn on one of those, TYVM.

    Now, if I owned suitable acreage on which to freely enjoy a .50? That’d change my paradigm there, and right quickly at that.
