    The AMT Back-up is a compact palm size stainless steel pistol. The gun is indestructible, but not as reliable as it could be. In order to clean the pistol, you have to punch out a rolled steel pin from the slide to allow disassemly. Since that's a pain in the buttocks, it is seldom done. A clean semi-auto is a happy semi-auto. A dirty semi-auto has earned the nickname the AMT Jam-up. I have never experienced a jam with mine, but I clean it religiously. I have watched other owners fire theirs in single shot mode, however, as the dirty gun jammed with every shot. For the money, not a bad hideaway/back-up. Just keep it clean

    I have one carry it all the time, a little on the heavy side but a .45 is well not light, Guess I need to clean mine more.

    A pain to clean for aforementioned reasons, but very tough and reliable.

    I've had two of these; sold the first one and then went back and bought another one. It is a little heavy but worth the weight. For the size it is the best pistol I've found outside the Colt Pocket 9 (which cost twice as much). The thing I like the most is the safety, easy to operate but doesn't come off when moving in and out of your pocket/holster like some others.
