The Automag Patrick had with him was not just parked at the SBR booth throughout the SHOT Show. Patrick had it with him to show various other companies that he walked to.

Patrick sent these to me today. Prototype rubber grips by Hogue:



Looks like a new unmarked classic upper, two different frames. The test target looks promising too!

I’m waiting to hear about price/availability on the grips. It’s good to hear good news like this though.....

Edit:  Patrick just wrote to me:


That was a prototype but once we start shipping I am going to have a couple of hundred made. I would guess around $80 a pair.

The odd thing is the primary advantage that rubber grips offer is recoil absorption. I have Pachmayr grips on all my magnum revolvers and can shoot full-power loads all day long, an impossibility with the stock wood grips. 

But these AM grips wrap around the front but have zero protection on the back strap which seems to almost defeat their purpose. I would think if they wrapped around the rear, instead of the front, they would be more effective, no?

Still a work in progress.....

The other problem I see is the AMP grips are about too big already for my hands and the rubber makes them bigger.

I guess we will see.  I do not really like the looks of the G10 grips but they work well on other guns as far as grip.

I have to agree with Beemer as added bulk is not needed in the case of Auto-Mag.  Standard thickness in fully checkered, black G-10 (Pasadena), 3k carbon fiber or smooth Ivory Micarta would be more appropriate. This pistol deserves grips as functional and exotic as the gun itself.  Only thing better would be to bring those beautiful Clint Teeters laminates back.  While I am told they were prone to breakage, they added something to the gun in the pages of GUNS & AMMO I will never forget.  Then Lee Jurras came along and made it even better.  When the AMP finally gets to market in numbers, I'm sure there will be more options to choose from. LOL

any word of an update to their progress reports? Kinda been 3 months.

I backed out already, so I guess I am not owed anything.

But it sure would help to get some sense of their next steps. Grips are nice looking... But kinda hard to understand the rationale for that if you don't have a pistol to admire them with.

Not trying to get snarky, just hoping there was some more progress to report. If all there is from now on are updates kind souls post to the forum, then so be it.

Until next month...

I am in the same boat as CrazyLarry...

When expectations were not met regarding the purchase of a Classic Edition I decided to back out after several months, close to a year.  If I was waiting on a FE, I probably would still be in line.  In addition, separation from a partner company, relocation, etc. added to my decision to withdraw.

Still interested in "getting back in line" to purchase a Classic.  However, waiting for updates and information that a viable product is ready for market or that the FE's have shipped and that an acquaintance has received his and is satisfied with the quality.  . I have a good understanding that it takes time to produce a reliable firearm.

Still have faith that Patrick will market a successful product.
