I'll have to poke Rob about a second magazine.  All of my original mags work in the new gun with the same loads the original gets.

I ordered the G10 grips, but the gun came with the wood ones. I called Rob, and he just sent me a pair of G10 ones. He said there was some confusion by the assemblers, on what guns got what. I got my presentation case, right when I ordered the gun in 2020. It was sitting under my workbench for 3 years.

I received 2x magazines with mine. I am still waiting on the wood grips, and the presentation case.

JFleisher64, did Rob send you two magazines, with your Automag? I received mine a month earlier, with only one magazine. Rob said they have a shortage of magazines, and were only sending one with each gun, until the supply catches up with demand. I am still waiting on my second magazine.

Interesting, while I’m surprised, I don’t doubt your experience, and I don't have a 357 Automag, so I can’t comment on that at all. 

I actually shoot my North Hollywood more than the 180-D and I have been using it with the new mags most of the time.  

I also did limited testing of the original mags in the 180-D, and I didn’t have a problem, but I also don’t see any reason to be using 50 year old mags that are difficult to replace.   

I shoot 50-100 rounds of 44 Automag a month, so in my sample of two pistols, I have a pretty good feel for how they work. 

As for the triple K.  I bought one for testing, it didn’t work as delivered, but has been running fine with the Wolff spring replacement. 

For what it is worth, my load is more than a 100 FPS slower than current SBR load, and finding a milder load that was 100% reliable took a lot of testing. I was looking for a 1250 fps load for long life, but I couldn’t get 100% reliability there.   But the reliability problems were not magazine related. 

Having said all that, I will order some more new mags if they ever open the store again.

It boils down to everyone having a very small sample size, of what is basically a hand-built gun, containing a pile of variation.

Run it up, until you blow it up, then back it down a bit.

I have two Founder's Editions and the old mags would not work at all in either of them.  I tried the new mags in several of my old AMP's and they did not work .  I spent no time trying to figure out any of the problems.

I sold a guy a LEJ Custom 100 44 and an Elmonte 357 and he ordered the new mags so he would have extras and they would not work in either of those pistols.  I sold him some old mags and they worked.

That is what I based my statement on.

Didn't someone say, some time ago, that there appeared to be 5 slight variations in the frames?

Too many slight variations to risk permanently damaging an "original" frame or barrel assy.
If you were happy and you knew it, would you clap your hands?

In my experience, the new magazines do not work in the old guns and the old mags don't work in the new guns.  They might work if you did some modifications or a little fitting but I did not even try.

I have not tried to use the new barrel/bolt assemblies on an old frame, but others have and from what I heard, it requires some major fitting.

The majority of the old barrels fit well on the old frames if you want to go to multiple calibers.  The North Hollywood frames seem to require a little more fitting for some reason.

This is just from my experience.  The frames on all AMP's seem to vary a lot and in my opinion, that is what has caused all the troubles with reliability through the years.
