    I remember this gun - never caught on but - pretty much a fine piece of engineering. It of course too had the .44 mag DE to compete against.

    I seem to recall too the ''Wildy'' never made huge sales.

    Brings back memories. I owned two Auto-Mag pistols in the 70s, one was a standard TDE .44 AMP, the other was a Lee Jurras .357 AMP. (The .357 was simply a necked down .44).

    .44 AMP brass was made from .308 Winchester rifle brass, trimmed to length in an RCBS file-type trim die, then inside neck reamed, final trim to length, then re-sized and loaded as normal. .357 brass required just the extra step of running the .44 brass into a neck die.

    The original .44 Auto-Mags were shipped with a 50 round box of ammo made by CDM in Mexico. This stuff was severely underpowered, and wouldn't cycle the action, but the brass was good for reloading. Super Vel also occasionally produced ammo in .44 and .357, as well as .41 JMP (Jurras Magnum Pistol). Norma also made a .44 AMP factory load.

    The Auto-Mag was an extremely well made, but complicated, pistol, both to operate (and keep operating) and to manufacture, and it suffered from chronic parts breakage. (My .357 was laid up for over a year with a broken part). But when it ran, it ran really good, and was extremely accurate. It was definitely ahead of its time.



    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    A guy I work with has a Wildy. A friend of his pawned it and could'nt get it out and simply gave the ticket to my friend. He went and picked it up for $125! The one he has can interchange barrels to fire a couple of different calibers.
