    AMT Backup 380

    I am wanting to purchase a Ruger LCP for a pocket gun. I have a new in box, never fired, stainless AMT backup 380 I am wanting to trade toward the LCP. How much approximately do you think I can get for the AMT from a gun shop doing this? thanks

    Could not even begin to tell you


    would bet That the gun shops I go to might give $75-100
    might want to try and see if you could sell it outright and do a bit better.JMO

    I wouldn't take less than $200 trade in for it. JMO


    FYI, GunsAmerica has one for sale at $250.
    MSRP is $450. yeah right!

    You would be lucky to get $200 in trade for it. Heck you would be lucky to get $250 out of it for a out right sale. The AMT have been made by quite a few different companies over the years. I had one of the Irwindale CA 380'S and it was a jamb o matic and unfortunately for you most AMT's have this same reputation whether deserved or not!! Good luck!!

    AMT backup 380
    Single action with the lever on the grip or the Double Action Only?
    For prices on the single action you can also search OMC backup as well as AMT backup.

    My S/A works with remingtom hollowpoints, ... I sold the DAO
    ---
    LCP?
    You should look at the Diamondback DB380, same size as the AMT/OMC backup, thinner, and a hundred pounds lighter and locked breech so it prefers +P and less felt recoil, and you can get your fingers on the grip better than most small 380s of that size

    I'm not up on the newer DA models but had two SA AMT BU's. One in .22LR and a .380. Both were the WORST weapons I ever owned. Neither would cycle a whole mag without jamming with every brand of ammo I fired though them. Tried new mags, polished the ramps and still did not run. Sold the .380 for $100.00 to a friend who knew it was a jammer and disabled the .22 that is now a paperweight.

    I'd see if the pistol fires and functions before I sold a potential lemon to anyone.

    If the gunshop owner knows his stuff I'd say he'd give you no more than $150.00 for it, if your lucky.

    Thanks for the inputs. The gun is DA only. I bought it years ago new when Dicks Sporting Goods sold handguns for $100
