New Auto Mag Corp
« on: February 11, 2016, 02:39:52 PM »

Reviving the Auto Mag has been rumored for longer than the Bren Ten.  These guys look like they mean business this time.

Time will tell.

Here is a video showing the Auto MagX. (Redesigned Auto Mag)

I am sure that it will start with the 44 Auto Mag and 357 Auto Mag cartridges.  I also heard that they would be moving up to the 45 Auto Mag cartridge which would be a new one. 

After that who knows.

If they do, I will buy one each of the 357 and 44. I have always liked the pistols and calibers.

I have AMP's chambered for the 44, 41, and 357 already and I agree they are good calibers although the 41 does not make much sense being so close to a 44.

The problem I see is the New AMP's will surely be north of $2K and probably closer to $3k or more.

The 45 AMP could be a very good caliber also.  A "suped-up" 45 Win Mag.

We'll see if this link works of a slow motion video of a 44 AMP being shot.  Watch as the barrel recoils back about 3/8" and rotates the bolt.  Watch the rear sight under recoil.

If they are north of 2k, I won't have one...

At that price I will take a custom 1911 in 10mm or 38 super.

And so will a lot of other shooters.

I hope I am wrong, but I really think that $3K will be the price on these, too complicated to build.

The .357 and .44's aren't the revolver rimmed versions correct?

The 44 Auto Mag Cartridge was originally made by cutting down 308 brass and reaming the neck.  the 357 Auto Mag is the 44 AMP necked to 357.

The 44 AMP is the same length as the 44 Remington mag and has approximately the same case capacity.  Starline now makes brass.

I do hope they are successful. I would like to shoot one to "get the feel" of the big handgun. Were it within reason, I would put it on my "bucket list".

Build or buy a .460 Rowland. More power at well less than a grand. And it's fun!

I will agree on the 460 Rowland as far as price and power.

But still, there is something very  cool about an Auto Mag.

I could see myself into the Auto Mag chambered in 10mm Magnum and a 9x30 (10mm mag necked down like and using the 9x25Dillon dies)  Just because it would be a very cool piece.  8)

Besides being cool, the Auto Mag a a very good platform for magnum auto loaded cartridges and a great pistol to shoot.

I can't help that their is no "10" in it's name to make it even cooler.   :)
