A while back I acquired a bunch of concept parts that pre-date the Prototype Auto Mags.  These were the start of the design of the new pistol as Harry saw it and how Max Gera brought it to life.

Here is the first attempt to guage the size of the pistol.  The scan is from Bert Mason's book and I can't seem to get it to rotate.

Read the text on the book pages as Mason got his info from Max Gera on these parts.

I am sorry for the photos being in the wrong order and the scans being rotated but I have a lot of trouble with this forum's software.

Here is Gera's second attempt at a frame and slide.  I do not have this piece in my possession yet but it is coming.

Here is a photo of the last Concept Pistol in a group with the first two Prototypes, #001 and #0002.

#001 is the pistol at center right and #0002 is the bottom pistol.

Here are some photos of the billets that Gera's first  Auto Mag, #001, were machined from.
