SHOT Show: Return of the .44 Auto Mag
The First New .44 Auto Mags Are Shipping In Over Thirty Years
Auto Mag will be displaying the new .44 Auto Mag at the SHOT Show 2018 Excel Booth (#2853). Its return is cause enough to make us rewatch Sudden Impact, knowing, of course, it will make all of our days.
Yes, we know, that’s a wheelgun. But we got tired of looking or an animated gif of the AutoMag and we’re too lazy to make one.
Here is what Auto Mag has to say about it (the real one):
NEWSFLASH: We are shipping the very first new Auto Mag pistols in over 30 years, the .44AMP Founders Edition with the eight and one-half inch barrel in honor of Dirty Harry’s Auto Mag in the movie, Sudden Impact. This featured and limited production run of just 77 units announced to the world this amazing feat. While we are sure no one in the media thought it, there were plenty of folks that doubted our resolve. Or ability.
We also just this week offered to our fan base the ability “first come & first served” to pre-order one of just 75 Classic pistols being produced and shipped within the next 60 days.
It has been almost three years since we acquired the assets of Auto Mag Corp. We have worked hard and spent a great deal of time and money to make sure what we produce is mechanically far superior to the original Auto Mag but retains that same look and feel. We are finally there and these pre-orders allow us walk through the early weeks of setup and shakedown as we gear up for mass production.
Take a look at the AutoMag on its IMFDB page, check out its movie history.

SHOT Show 2018
This SHOT Show 2018 SHOTREP has been brought to you by the eeeee-light writin’ team at Breach-Bang-Clear. You’re welcome. Why are we focusing so much attention on SHOT, you ask? Is the NSSF SHOT Show that important, you wonder?
Is a pig’s ass pork?
The National Shooting Sports Foundation annual Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade show may be just one of many conventions in Vegas, (as you can see by checking out Vegas Means Business), but it’s definitely the most important one in our world…well, unless you count the AVNs. Besides, as we’ve explained (NSSF SHOT Show 2018 Approacheth), this year is SHOT’s 40th anniversary — meaning it’s damned near as old as the most seasoned dancer at Nancy’s Squat ‘n’ Gobble! (We’re not entirely sure how old Industry Day at the Range, or as it’s also called, Media Day at the Range, really is.)
Regardless — we’ll be providing industry press releases and lots more from the floor. There’s damn sure gonna be a lot to talk about.
You can find all our SHOT Show 2018 articles in the SHOT Show 40th Anniversary lineup.
