Description

the AMT AutoMagII represents the first successful .22 Magnum gun ever produced and marketed to the general public. What makes the design even more timely is currently High Standard has returned the Automag II and the .380 AMT Backup models to the marketplace.

The Automag II features a retarded blowback action. Visually, it looks like a sleek stainless steel blend of an open framed Beretta and a 1911 Colt. It is sleek. The frame is only 0.79-inch wide while the width of the grip is 2 inches. It feels like a nice, slim M1911 in my hand.

The AMT AutoMagII was originally offered with three barrel lengths: 3-3/8, 4-1/2, and 6 inches. The model pictured here has a 6-inch barrel, weighs 32 ounces, and has an overall length of 9-1/4 inches. Frankly, a .22 Magnum needs a 6-inch barrel to approach anywhere near its inherent potential as a hunting cartridge plus, even with a 6-inch barrel, the muzzle blast will pretty much awaken the dead. The fireball at the end of the muzzle will also light up the night sky. I can’t imagine touching off the .22 Maggie in a 3-3/8-inch barreled model Automag.

Some of the interesting features of the original, single-action Automag II are a 9-shot, stainless steel magazine with a release at the heel of the grip, a fully adjustable 3-dot sight system by LPA of Italy, a hammer-blocking safety at your right thumb which is pushed “Up” to disengage, a squared-off trigger guard, a trigger measuring 5 pounds on my Lyman electronic scale (but feels lighter), the last shot hold open on the slide and an M1911-type slide stop. Anyone familiar with fieldstripping the M1911 will have no problem with the disassembly of the AMT AutoMagII, and if you have any doubts, YouTube has some great videos of the whole procedure, in addition, High Standard can supply you with an owner’s manual.

What is intriguing to me is the caliber. The .22 WMR, as debuted in 1959, was designed by Winchester to do one thing well—to kill something. It’s not a plinking round. It’s not a target round. It’s not cheap. It uses jacketed hollowpoints, and in its present array of loadings, it’s better and more accurate than it’s ever been in the 55 years of its existence. I’ve used it on small antelope in Africa and on coyotes in the Back 40. The little Maggie is one terrific cartridge.

Having said that, an original Automag II can be choosy about its ammunition. I recently tested nine different industry loadings. My Automag II would only function perfectly with three: Remington’s 33-grain V-Max (1,439 fps), CCI’s Maxi-Mag 40-grain JHP (1,305 fps), and Winchester Super-X 40-grain (1,322 fps). Firing 5-shot groups at 25 yards from a rest, I found the most consistently accurate of those three choices were Remington’s V-Max (2 inches) and CCI’s Maxi-Mag HP (2 inches). If I had my choice between those two, I would select the Remington since it produced nicely rounded groups while the CCI load tended to string.
