Auto Mag pistol (USA) Type Single Action semiautomatic Caliber(s) .357AMP .44AMP Barrel length 165 or 216 mm (6 1/2 or 8 1/2 inch) Magazine capacity 7 rounds The original Auto Mag pistol was conceived by American businessman Harry Sanford during late 1960s. Sanford envisioned the semiautomatic pistol, similar in power to the very powerful Smith&Wesson .44 Magnum revolvers, but with less recoil and more round capacity. For his project, he used an wildcat .44 caliber (actual bullet diameter 0.429 inch - 10.9mm) cartridge, that was around since late 1950s. This cartridge was based on shortened .308 Winchester (7.62x51mm) case, that pushed 240-grain (15.5 gram) bullet to velocities like 1680fps (512m/s), giving a muzzle energy of roughly 1500 ft-lbs (~2000 Joules). By 1971, Harry Sanford also introduced the .357AMP cartridge, which used .44AMP case necked down to accept .357 caliber (9mm) bullet. With 150-grain (9.7 gram) bullet, this mighty .357 cartridge developed muzzle velocities in excess of 1750 fps (533m/s). Production pistols with model numbers 180 and 280 were made in .44AMP caliber, models 160 and 260 were made in .357AMP caliber. The key niche for such monstrous pistols was the handgun hunting (sport rather popular in USA), as well as silhouette shooting. Prototype pistols were designed by Max Gera for Harry Sanford's Auto Mag Corporation in around 1970. Production history of these original Auto Mag pistols was rather turbulent: After short time Auto Mag Corp went bankrupt, and a new company, TDE Corp, was established to continue production of Auto Mag. Later on, more Auto Mag guns were made by OMC Corp and High Standard Corp. Overall production of Auto Mag pistols is estimated at about 9 500 guns, made between 1971 and 1982. It must be noted that back in early 1970's Auto Mag pistols were in a class of its own - there were no other production pistols with such power; rivals like Wildey and Desert Eagle appeared later than Auto Mag. Also, the 'original' Auto Mag pistols should not be confused with later Automag II - V pistols, which also were designed by Harry Sanford made by AMT during 1990s.
Without the mechanism, only appearance. Did on photos, and though very much tried, there can be any insignificant discrepancies. Originally modelled in Rhino 4. Final images rendered Fryrender. All formats these files are exported from Rhino:
