Now my general feeling about this little AMT Backup, is that it will be a handful when having to use it, and the trigger pull is extremely hard approx 10 lbs. I do remember owning a .380 AMT Backup, and it was loud and bucked like no tomorrow.]

AMT .45 ACP Backup



A very small Double Action Only backup weapon, made entirely from stainless steel, and it is highly concealable. It has a 5 shot magazine, with the magazine release in the heel of the grip. The smallest .45 ACP automatic pistol on the market at this time.

Weight: 1.56 lbs (0.71 kg)
Caliber: .45 ACP ( also in 9mm, .38 super, .40 S&W, .357 SIG, and .400 Cor-Bon )
Barrel: 2.5 inch (6.2 cm)
Action: Double Action Only
Range: 75 ft (22.9 m)
Payload: 5 + 1
Cost: $ 450
Made in: USA
Special: Stainless steel manufacture.

I had the AMT Backup in both 9mm and .45....got rid of both because they will chew your hand up in a heartbeat....that slide comes back with force....hated both of them.....

I held one last fall in the local range/shop...the trigger curve was all wrong and the tip of the trigger stabbed my finger as I tried to pull it...I'd love to see the gun done RIGHT...the concept is great...AMT should have stayed with the Hardballer...these hurt their rep a lot...so far, the Kahr seems to be the smallest I'd buy...jared's CS45 might be nearly that small...a .45's gonna bump you when you go that small..but it'll bump the other guy worse...
