" UH UH. Too new-fangled. "

Lol. Judging by the age of the comic Mr. Road Reaper would regret the $300 investment on return as opposed to what even two Ruger Blackhawks would fetch today? Ouch

Yeah, that was a back issue of "HEX" (as in Jonah Hex) from the mid 80's.

Ironic how she claims the 38-40 was harder to get than 44AMP ...

Did she think that cutting down 308 was something people had time for in a nuclear wasteland?

Still, a nice throwback.

I picked up 500 pieces of starline 357 nickel brass and Cast Performance 180gr WFNGC pills for less than the price of 200 rds of 44AMP and Hornady xtp bullets.

My Blackhawks we're $389/each new in 2002. Still have them and just got the cylinders reamed. Brutally accurate after a trigger job.

Back to automaginations.

Hi Guys, own several of the older Pasadenas and BAMs, Heard rumors of a possible resurrection of  a new  automag being  improved and possible soon for production. What is believable and what is BS. Appreciate the input!!!  Rod

Well ROD! You have 105 pages to read up on for your answer, lol. I have no skin in this game but I believe it will come back for awhile AT LEAST! As a long lasting effort, that depends on how they can cut cost to sell more mainstream, get a loader to load for this so non-handloaders MIGHT consider buying. There's lots of things that could be done for success or failure. Only time will time.

I know some will Poo-Poo this idea BUT Harry Sanford built/ran a few companies and the longest running was the AMT brand. I think it would help to have more than ONE model line that is expensive, maybe too much for some and bring back the AMT line one model at a time. That would make some find the Auto Mag line also. The AMT line had some good stuff, the Hard Baller 45acp, and the Jav 10mm are the most common caliber, then maybe the Automag II  and maybe some 9mm models. It's tough out there through with all the cheaper PLASTIC stuff, so it has to be market for the "Long Lasting" real stainless steel crowd!

I keep hearing the 45acp stuff is fighting back hard with the 10mm following close behind. Those in the know will look hard at them. You won't get the I'm only getting one for the "house" as they will go cheap because they won't practice or enjoy it as a shooter, it's "just in case" for them. Have to have powder in your blood to understand and love what Larry designed or was involved in with this line of stuff. Not saying he was the only person either but he did stay the longest with Harry.
And Yes I'm a big fan of the AMT line up!
Buy now before things either go up in price or disappear forever again! 
If I had the money to spare I would have ordered 3 sets! I just drool everytime Patrick posts!
Good Luck Patrick!

Not sure, but last I heard, High Standard had rights to the AMT lines. Anybody know for sure?

I have been curious about this myself....you know, they have "been in business" ( AGAIN!) since 1995 and I have NEVER seen any High Standard gun other than some of their AR clones.  Not one other gun.

I went to their website to see if there was any info I could glean and it appears that they may be defunct AGAIN.

Their site just shows logos but has no other info.  The one thing I do know is that at one time they did make some Automag II. No other complete firearm models did I see ever, heard they might of had some spare parts for some models but never needed so didn't check.

I think the Sanford estate was selling parts as they could so maybe they only purchased rights to Automag II and spare parts. This is just a guess, only Walter Sanford or high Standard would know for sure.

That's why I mentioned it, never seen anything other than Automag II from them. I think I remember seeing "Back-up" listed but seen none on the market. They might have wanted to but never got around to it? So many questions but I'm sure Patrick can if needed sort it out.

Apparently HS made some B/Us, but didnt put their name on them. Just stamped "AMT-HOUSTON TEXAS USA"...https://gunsgunsguns.net/high-standard-amt-backup/

I have seen a few on GB, but not recently. Not certain how many different cals. were actually made, either. .40 and .45 for sure...https://www.personaldefenseworld.com/2013/12/preview-high-standard-amt-backup-45-acp/ Also...https://www.tactical-life.com/firearms/preview-high-standard-amt-backup/ ---Heres an article on the AutomagII...http://gunblast.com/AMT-AutoMagII.htm   also...https://gunsgunsguns.net/high-standard-amt-automag-ii/

A quick call back to the SR71 for those interested...Smithsonian channel(367 on Dishnetwork) has a series "planes that changed the world" that just had an hour on that plane. I think they repeat their shows fairly regularly so just keep looking if you miss it....Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...
