So my dream of getting something by September might actually come true. 

I am debating asking if they could drill/tap for scope rails at the factory. That would save me some time on my end. And I would be more inclined to order a 6 1/2" barrel later this fall/winter.

Do your research on scope mounts.  The short recoil action of the AMP's is hard on scopes and mounts.  

I think Gera has the best mounting system.

I had SSK mount one of their T"SOB mounts, no problem with the first 50 rounds that were a little warm.

Asked a follow-up question on mags and Patrick replied that they should start  being available soon for our use on original AM's.  He suggested a 2-4 week time frame but will have patience on that.

Do you have a pic? Just curious how this would work with the factory rib.

I don't want to cut the rib in any way. Just drill/tap it with rail that fits over the rib, if possible.

Maybe "saddle" the rib? Like how the rails for a Taurus Raging Bull works towards the front of the barrel.

Here is a link to an old post here showing Gera's mounting system.  Gera put one on a 41 AMP Covina barrel and I was well satisfied with it.  My barrel was a plain one without the rib.

I do not know if Gera is still doing them.

Since this is the new auto mag thread should we be asking if “they” have any scope mounts in the works?
That would be a very nice factory option.

I guess I would like to get my gun before we request a new project from AutoMag.   Wink

About 5 years ago I followed an international company that focused on innovating cat feeders for the home. There was a special 'intro' price, with future-projected delivery dates. It involved a scale, facial recognition to distinguish one cat's "geometry (Cry) ' over another. Ensuring the right cat got fed at the right time throughout the day. Advanced for the current marketplace. I wrote this company several years back as I felt comfortable spending the "$299" for the founders special but needed clarification on their delivery times. They were honest and added they found hiccups with their software and delay issues related to partners such that delivery was pushed back. Something told me to wait, save the cash, and monitor their progress. To date, the company never produced the auto feeder, the funding, FB, and other sites were shut down with many peeved investors asking questions, or simply wanting a refund--after waiting years. 

Then one thing that stood out to me was the level of detail in the company updates. In the beginning and throughout trial phases, anyway. There was a chronology of pictures and explanations highlighting software glitches, material issues, recognition software problems, etc. It was very informative but as a whole there was a litany of never ending issues, and not solutions throughout their Progress Updates. They meant well--at least it sounded like it--and assured investors of their dedication throughout years of R&D but the only thing that ever came of it was a bunch of hopeful images.

I want the new Auto Mag to succeed, and would like to purchase one, but am struggling to understand 'who' the company is, and what their end goal is. If I knew they would not succeed, I definitely would not purchase a new Auto Mag. Despite the value--or lack of--the value after the fact. I just wouldn't take there risk as my purchase would be for a functional shooting pistol, not an investment. 

I have read every single page of this forum thread. And I don't know who is involved with the company. I know the CEOs name, and one other employee but otherwise, I don't. Though I may be mistaken, solely from this thread, I learned about Stealth Arms involvement, Excel Arms, Larry Grossman and Timothy Bell, and original innovator, Max Gera.  But, I think they all have parted ways.

Please understand I'm not trying to generate drama or cast some shade on the organization, or past/current members. The issue is that their website has changed a lot in the recent past. It used to list their team and cited accomplishments and such. So when they spoke about changes to metallurgy, or magazine construction, you had a level of assurance that there were resources--with their partners--to produce the needed items. 

Currently, there aren't any updates publically. I have attempted to phone them, subscribed for 'updates', and written them e-mails with no response. 

Solely because of AMT Guns Forum I felt comfortable buying a few Auto Mags over the years. I was always hesitant as when I met owners over the years they pretty much said they don't shoot them as the risk for something breaking was too high. Only through reading 'Yoshi's' Buyers Guide, the numerous publications that are available (for free), and your commentary was I able to get myself to a place where I was comfortable in comparing versions, and properly addressing critical areas. I had always read this site without registering, until a week or so ago. My issue with my current Auto Mags is that I don't feel comfortable shooting them. Though, thanks to you, they all cycle well. Never recall having a problem firing 6 off. Only reason I didn't load the seventh was because its kind of a pain to get it in there. The magazine-polish article and numerous threads associated with fine tuning have been invaluable. Still, I don't feel comfortable shooting these almost 50 year old firearms. My inclination was to consider 'thinning the herd' and buying a new one that would be warranted by the company. 

Ideally, I would like a 6.5" 44AMP, along with a 357AMP 8.5" or 10" barrel but am unclear whether they have made progress on what was initially discussed as a chambering at the outset. 

I have a lot of questions regarding specifics of the new Auto Mag, but am refraining to bring them up as, on this thread, on just wanted to seek your input on company management/production, and updates. I appreciate the time everyone has taken to be so thorough and giving with information.
