I have a AMT 9mm backup.What is the best hollow point ammo for this gun.
A friend has the 9mm AMT backup; I liked the size but not the caliber. The .22 LR is just perfect to handle for a woman! Was difficult to find as its a limited edition but well worth the search! Found that it jammed every time until I switched ammo ... likes high velocity such as Stingers.
IVE HAD MY AMT .380 BACKUP FOR 15 YEARS WITHOUT A PROBLEM. VERY LITTLE RECOIL, GREAT CONCEAL WEAPON. I LOVE THIS GUN. THE OLD ONES LOOK BETTER THEN THE NEWER ONES. I BELIEVE I PAID $160.00 FOR MINE IN 1991. WOW!!! COMPARE THAT TO THE $450.00 PRICETAG OF TODAY!
I just got one of these great little guns, unfortunately without any owners manual. The download available on this sight is for a slightly different model, doesnt have a safety, mine does. Anyone know where I can find some information on the care and feeding of this piece?
nbanders- if yours is a single action like mine, I could mail you a copy of my manual.
Thanks for the offer. I managed to find the info I think I need on the internet
Ive got the 380 DAO, had it for 5 or 6 years and am still trying to find a factory hollowpoint that will cycle faithfully. Has anyone had any luck with HP ammo? Im currently using either FMJ (ball) ammo for practice, it works flawlessly. For carry Ive settled on Glaser Silver Safety Slugs. They work without a hitch too but theyre on the pricey side. I have yet to find a factory HP that functions properly. If anyone has a recommendation for something that will cycle faithfully I would sure appreciate it! Thanks much...
Can anyone help me please??? My AMT380 was recently stolen by a significant other. I have lost the registration from my original purchase over 10yrs ago & without the serial # the Police wont file a report of it being stolen. God forbid its used in a crime I dont want it coming back on me. Does anyone have any idea of any other way I can get my serial# back from when I purchased it???
I suggest you kick that significant other in the ass. Dont let them know that you dont have the ser.# and tell them that you reported it stolen. Tell them to expect a visit from the police.
Does the place you bought it from still exist? See if they have any records of the sale. Its a longshot but its worth a try.
About kicking the S.O. in the ass, dont do it. Thatll just make things worse.
Thanks Cont2! I bought it at sports authority & dont think they even sell guns anymore. But I know they had to register the purchase with the manufacturer & trying to find a way to contact them. I already told him I was gonna contact the police & he said I would too. But I have the case & theres a # written on it could that be the serial# u think?
I had an AMT backup made in Covina, Cal. The number was A81034. Does the number look sisilar? If so, Its probably the serial number.. I sold mine last week for $200.00. Good luck and keep us posted...
kind of but it has a few more letters in front of it maybe those are insignificant??? I appreciate ur help with this I guess I will use what I have as the serial # & see where it goes, better than nothing even if most of the sequence is right they may be able to track it. But FL gun laws suck anyways, gotta love this place!
Hey Sin#1, I know what youre saying and occasionally when they get their claws in ya you just need to yell and yell loud! I bought my AMT 380 several years back in Ft. Myers at a gun show. The number on it is: OAA04xxx, xs being encrypted for security. But it gives you an idea of the type and length of my number. The store you bought it from is required to keep your information. BATF keeps it long enough to clear you for purchase and are then required to destroy it. I have had warranty problems with one of my pistols and I went back to the gun shop I bought it at and they were able to pull up all the information in a heartbeat. I would keep after them, they should have it and might just be lazy about going back into those files to get it. Hope this helps!
Hey Tig! Mad love for ur help & yeah thats the right amt of #s on the box! Dude gonna get a visit from the police, lol! Love it when men think women are that stupid & gullible! Woohoo!!! Ill be on the phone again in the am with Sports Authority & file that report! Good looking out to all of u! Hey may have pawned it but now I own his ass!! At the state pen of course, lmao!!!!
The difference in the numbers could be that one was made in the Covina plant and the other may have been made in the Irwindale plant. Just out of curiosity Tig, where was yours made? itll say it right on the side. cynykle1, does your paperwork indicate where yours was built?...
Hey Cont2! Whats been happening? I havent had the pleasure of chatting with you for quite a while. Not since you sold your 380! Im still disappointed that you did that! LOL!!! Just giving you a hard time, I hope youre enjoying your new shooter! My AMT was built at the Irwindale plant. Ill dig out my paperwork and find the actual sale date. Might not be til tomorrow though! Im starting to fade, it has been a long day!
Cynykle1, you be careful. Your safety is way more important than the price of this pistol. You are handling it right by going through your local law enforcement. If he pawned it the numbers will show up right away on the local tracking list. Get all the information you can get your hands on and listen to the advice of the local law enforcement officials. After that step back and let the law do their job. Stay safe!!
cynykle1, once youve reported the gun stolen check out FDLE website Stolen Gun Search. Itll show up with maybe even a picture of type of gun, where it was stolen from and the serial number, county.At least you can see that the ball is rolling...good luck and be careful.
Now the fun begins...youll have to get another pistol...
Tig, I havent gotten anything yet. Im still looking and debating. Changing gears altogether, I saw a beautiful Ruger Blackhawk .45LC revolver for only $279.00 ...in new condition. One of the salesmen may have f***ed up by showing it to me. He said he hid it in the back of the case so he could put it on layaway himself.
Never had a revolver until I bought the Rough Rider .22 conversion w/ 6 bbl. That Ruger Might be worth looking at. They go for close to $500 new.
Starting to re-build a AMT .380 Backup pistol. I am needing a complete spring kit for starters, along with a set of grips. Any help out there?

These have just about everything you need. I have used Brownell's services before and they're a great bunch of people. Good luck! Let me know how it works out. Welcome to the forum too! It's always nice to meet new people. I'll keep looking, more later!
