No. Essentially, Harry Sanford under several company incarnations, then Acadia Machine Tool, and lastly by Lee Jurras (gunsmith based in New Mexico).

That would be like holding a S&W model 29 8 3/8 barrel.

Had one in "Sudden Impact". Or did you mean one of the new ones, for the next time he needs to tell someone "Get off my lawn!" (Automag is SLIGHTLY smaller than a Garand....)

I had left a VM for the owner of the new AutoMag company to make sure I was in the queue for a 6.5" model. He called back and casually quizzed me a little re AutoMag history and, to cut a long story short, he offered me one of the last two Founder's Editions (8.5"). I figure I'm due something special after dabbling in crypto-currencies and making healthy profits, so time to reward myself - so I accepted.

The pistol should arrive Feb sometime.
Very cool Andy. I bet you'll be quite pleased with your decision.

You are planning on open carrying that beast, right? :coolgleamA:
