POTD: Just a Little Guy – Amt Baby Automag Semi-Automatic Pistol
Welcome to today’s Photo of the Day! Here we have the smallest of the Automag lineup, the Baby Automag! Back in the day, AMT was a manufacturer of unique handguns. Mainly handguns that I would argue were an answer to a question no one asked. Nonetheless, they found their small unobtained market and took charge. They were the manufacturers of semi-automatic high-powered handguns, particularly magnums. They made handguns that shot .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum, .45 ACP, .50 AE, and .30 Carbine even! But at some point for a limited run, they tried their hand at .22 Long Rifle pistols. This brought us a 1,000 pistol run of Baby Automag handguns. These Baby Automags were very similar in design to the Ruger MK series of the time and functioned the exact same.
“Vent rib barrel and Millet adjustable rear sight. Includes a hardwood display case with a red cloth interior. Number 182 out of approximately 1,000 manufactured.”
