The AMT Automag III is a single action semi-automatic handgun, designed by Harry Sanford, creator of the first Automag. The Automag III does not actually fire a magnum cartridge, but is chambered for the .30 Carbine cartridge originally designed for the World War II era M1 carbine. It was also originally chambered for the 9mm Winchester Magnum cartridge. Only the original AMT production pistols were made in 9mm Winchester Magnum; later Galena production was only in .30 Carbine. It was made of stainless steel and has an 8-round magazine.
