If you want to try something similar there are polymer coated bullets out there;
Seems a similar concept.  They are currently out of stock on a lot of their inventory but it would be interesting to try some.
When you are up to your neck in alligators it is hard to remember your original intention was to drain the swamp

UNBOXING REVIEW AHEAD

My Founder's Edition arrived just two weeks ago, and every time I look at it, it's still hard to believe I actually have it.  The last time a wait seemed this long to me was as a kid waiting for Christmas!

I can only exclaim to each of you gentlemen, that this weapon is truly everything we all hoped it would be.  In addition to the weapon itself, the team did a phenomenal job putting together the packaging and internal materials, from the production notes to the presentation case.  The reveal of each element reminds me of unboxing a finely crafted handgun in 1975 all over again, from the felt-laden bottom to the polished challenge coin.  They really went the extra mile with the details, and it shows.

The weapon itself is indeed profound in appearance, with it's 8.5" barrel and high-polish finish, which is quite the departure from what is typically seen in the used marketplace given it's comparable price. Having never held an 8.5" version of this pistol before, the additional weight is only slightly noticeable, and does not appear to make the weapon "front-heavy" as one would expect. It is quite easy and natural to keep the sights on target.

Charging (not racking) the slide felt more like operating the breech on a 105, than a one-handed pistol! The action is quite stout, especially when new, and required me to use a gloved hand to pull the slide back when the hammer was down. Sharper serrations on the cocking piece might solve this, but at a cost of increased wear to the hand and holster. For now, I will break in the action at the range and re-evaluate after 100 or so shots. Other than this small issue, the action itself was perfectly smooth, and held an extremely tight lockup with it's M16-inspired locking lugs.

I have not yet fired this piece of art, but will soon and advise of any issues. Bruce Stark shared with me his personal favorite loading for the 44AMP, so it's off to the range to make some new and legendary memories with my eager son.

As a contributor to IMFDB for many years, I took notice of the lack of information regarding the Auto Mag main page, and the recent developments and history. Please note that this page, and it's reference points for several shows and movies, has now been fully updated (including the full reference and screen shots for that single episode of T.J. Hooker that featured "CLINT-2"). Please call me if you have any recommended changes or additions to the link below:

Thanks so much, Patrick and Team (Yes. you too, Rob!). Given the challenges you have experienced over the last 6 years, to both your sanity and from those wishing to test your patience by abandoning their own, I raise my glass. I, for one, am truly glad you were successful in breaking with the one tradition that seems to tacitly follow the Automag name wherever it goes, and have instead decided to build a new one; keeping promises.
