Manufacturer’s Description

The AMT AutoMag III is a semiauto single-action pistol built on a stainless steel frame and chambered in .30 Carbine. It’s operated via a locked breech, Browning-type short recoil action. The magazine release is located in the triggerguard’s base.

Features include a single-stack, eight-round magazine, a patridge front sight, a windage- and elevation-adjustable rear sight, and black grips.

Some History
The AutoMag (one word) was the brainchild of Harry Sanford, the man also behind the Auto Mag (two words) in the late 1960s. The AutoMag series was produced by AMT / IAI from the late 1980s through the 1990s before the company went under.

Currently, High Standard produces the AutoMag II. The AutoMag series included the AutoMag II, the AutoMag III, the AutoMag IV and the AutoMag V.
