I very seldom 'bash' any weapon. Even entry level guns that I would not own have their place for those on a budget and just getting started perhaps. But THIS..... is ridiculous for the price they get. Just received this, handling a transfer for someone.....

If you are frikkin the incredible hulk, maybe you won't mind the 84.7 pound trigger pull on this hunk of metal. And the 'rut' milled out of the slide for a sight channel.... no sights whatsoever..... ok.... since it's a close range purposed pistol..... But..... this huge chunk of milled off slide, exposing not only the trigger bar, but a gaping hole for all type of debri and junk to get in easily and cause issues???? WTH!?!?!??!

What were they thinking

Have never been impressed with this company. My brother had a 380 that was most efeective in tearing up your hand.

I think them $1100 Rohrberg (sp) have no sights. I guess for a point and shoot gun. Heard they had been popular with police as a BUG at one time. That thing looks nothing like the old AMT's and that hole in the side is begging for a jam.

Yea,I passed on getting a .45 Backup years ago after reading about feeding issues and trigger pull. I think the Backup really hurt their rep. overall. I have an AMT automag III that runs great, as well as a Hardballer.

They do make some good guns, but that damn Backup ain't one of em for sure...too bad it gave their whole company a bad rap, but they should have thought about that before releasing a crappy product.

I read this thread the other day and I'm still trying to figure out how

A) That gun made it out of the manufacturers building
B) If it isnt just a mistake, how they (AMT) justify charging money for that.
C) Why that design would even remotely resemble a good idea
D) why, if they can pull this kind of crap off cant I get a job in the firearms manufacturing industy.

After seeing that gap in the frame, I wondered if they had monkeys doing QC on the Backups. :confused2:

I'm surprised at this...I'd always considered the old AMT 380's anway to be pretty good (as .380's go)...

I know this is a 9mm but geezzz

Looks like the liability lawyers made them put that 85 lb trigger in

Man I'd send that "gapper" back to em

I had an AMT Backup .380, and it was too heavy, had lousy sights, and still kicked like an angry mule. Not only that, but the magazine capacity was one less than the Kel Tech PT3 I replaced it with. If I have to put up with punishing recoil and a gun that's only good to a practical distance of five yards, I might as well have something that carries well.
