AMT Automag III [Automatic Pistol]:
A large single action semi automatic weapon, this is the brainchild of Harry Sanford, creator of the original automag. It does not fire a true magnum cartridge, but the .30 carbine load, a cartridge originally designed to be used in light rifles and the M-1 carbine. The Automag III is the first selfloading handgun to SUCCESFULLY chamber this cartridge. The first such a pistol, the Kimball, suffered from being very fragile and a far too short barrel to launch the highspeed bullet from.
It has a 8 shot magazine and is, like all of the AMT guns, made of stainless steel.
