Chrispopher O, very interesting reading the article from Guns and Ammo from 1984.
Thanks for the link.
I have not heard that Harry Sanford gave Clint an Auto Mag. I did know that Harry Sanford designed “Clint 2” for the movie Sudden Impact
, but on loan only. I know that “Clint 2” was designed to function and fire blank cartridges only while “Clint 1" was a fully operational semi-automatic. (Maybe Harry gave Clint the “Clint 1”?)
The first link was not working. You have an extra s on the end. I have hyperlinked it to the direct thread below: AutoMagpistol.com
According to AutoMagpistol.com “Clint 2” sold just a few days ago for $60,000.
"That’s a hell of a price to pay for being stylish!"
Below is a letter from AMT to Warner Brother explaining that Clint 2 is strictly on loan.
Below is an actual letter from Clint Eastwood to Harry Sanford stating, yes, that “Clint 2” was indeed the Auto Mag used in the movie Sudden Impact
Check out this Youtube below.
It's sick how the rear sight wobbles when the gun is fired. I have never seen anything qutie like it. AutoMag fired in Slo-Mo
Now that's what I call recoil...
