New .44 Auto Mag Barrels are being made (pic)

I don't know if we have any .44 Auto Mag fans here, but just an FYI.....Maynard Arms is now reproducing the 8.5" full vent rib barrels like the one used by Clint Eastwood in Sudden Impact.

And here's the crazy part. Brian Maynard actually delivers on-time and gives nearly daily updates on progress. He is getting ready to make another run, so if you want one, you need to contact him soon. In this last run, he made barrels in .357 AMP (shown) .44 AMP, and 45 Win Mag. In the next run, he might be adding .41 JMP and .40 KMP as well.

One of the coolest looking pistols ever. How can you not like a pistol carried by Mack Bolan and 'Dirty' Harry Callahan?

I had the opportunity to buy a .44 Automag, back in '79.
A "Gyrojet" was right beside it, in the showcase.

Coulda had the Automag and 3 magazines for $400.00.
I should have bought it.

Yep....with the collection you have, I am quite surprised there is not an Auto Mag in there.

I bought my first 3 barrel set (.357/41/44 Auto Mag) when I was 23 years old back in 1989. It is certainly my favorite pistol of all time. I even named my dog after it.

My buddy picked up a 357 Auto Mag last year. It came with 200 pieces of brass and two mags for $1800!
Apparently, all you need to convert it to a 44 Auto Mag is the barrel. That's what he told me anyway.

That is correct. You only need to swap the barrel in order to run .357 AMP, 41 JMP, 44 AMP, or 45 Win Mag. There is no other big bore auto loader like it.......where BOTH sights are on the barrel so you don't have to adjust the sights when swapping calibers.

It really takes away from the versatility of your gun, if you have to stop and sight-in the damn thing every time you make a "quick" caliber change.

Here is a group I shot, hand held, no rest, at 50 feet running seven rounds of .357 AMP, seven rounds of 41 JMP, and seven rounds of 44 AMP, all on the same frame.
Below is a FIVE shot group fired with the 41 JMP, hand held, no rest, at 50 feet. I threw one out.

OMG. An Able Team reference. I must have been 12 or 13 when Stony Man Doctrine came out, and haven't thought about that series in 25 years. Wow.

The 44 auto mag is a thing of beauty.

Mack Bolan later traded it for the Desert eagle .44 and Beretta 93R combo.
