The Little AMT Backup

The AMT Backup is a teeny tiny gun with a short 2.5-inch barrel, an overall length of 5 inches, and a height of 4.1 inches.

Although almost no police officer these days would carry a . 25 automatic for backup, that same size handgun in . 32 ACP or . 380 ACP can make a satisfactory second gun and an even finer third gun, if one is so inclined.
The . 380 bullet is considered a low-powered, low muzzle velocity handgun round with an effective range of 50 feet and a more accurate range of around 25 feet. Its effective range varies based on barrel length, but you can expect a spread of 7-10 yards for its effective range.
380 ACP holds 8 bullets in the magazine and 1 in the chamber making the Bersa Thunder 380 an 8+1 round gun.
380 ACP is already a slow round, that means ammunition selection is critical. But know, too, that – again – . 380 ACP has proven to be effective in real-life defense situations IF the shooter chooses a quality bullet and does their job as a marksman.
380 is a smaller, weaker bullet to begin with. From a short barrel, it`s about half as powerful as 9mm or less…and 9mm is the standard personal protection caliber for more or less the entire world.
Although the Diamondback DB380 is a tiny package, just about anyone should be able to effectively fire and control it. With its steel slide and barrel, and polymer frame, this little pistol weighs a mere 8.8 ounces, yet it has a 2.8-inch barrel—almost an inch longer than most popular pocket revolvers.
380 ACP loads varies from roughly 190 to 220 ft·lbf. The table below shows common performance parameters for several . 380 ACP loads. Bullet weights ranging from 85 to 95 grains are common.
Compact and Lightweight: One of the biggest advantages of the Kimber Micro 380 CC is its size and weight. It`s small enough to conceal easily, and it weighs just 13.4 ounces, making it easy to carry all day long without any discomfort.
When the calibers were originally named, the 9mm was named according to the diameter of just the bullet and the 380 was named for the diameter of the cartridge with the bullet seated in the casing.
380 ACP pistol holding 13 rounds. It is, as you might expect, fairly large and heavy for a .
The 9mm cartridge is longer and holds more powder propelling the bullet faster than the . 380. That`s why the bullet travels at higher velocity and possesses greater impact energy. This is what makes the 9mm a more powerful cartridge.
380 Auto cartridge is the way to go. This cartridge has a 99-grain hollow point projectile and a listed muzzle velocity of 935 FPS with 192 FT LB of energy. The HST bullets are designed to perform with reliability when passing through a variety of common barriers.
A 380 ACP case, on the other hand, is just about as long (0.68 inches) but the bullet it fires is 0.355 inches in diameter. This means there is a lot more room for powder inside a 380 ACP case than a 22 LR case, resulting in a more powerful round.
380 uses a . 355-in diameter bullet, just like 9x19mm. Bullet size is actually more universal than you`d think, incidentally; among rifle rounds, for instance, the 7mm-08 Remington, 7mm Remington Magnum, 7mm Shooting Times Westerner, . 280 Remington and 7mm Weatherby Magnum all use .
380 ACP pistol holding 13 rounds. It is, as you might expect, fairly large and heavy for a .
380 Automatic Colt Pistol (ACP) bullets actually have a diameter of 0.36 inches.
An overall length of 5.25 inches. A height of 3.25 inches. A width of . 8 inches.
380 Automatic Colt Pistol (ACP) bullets actually have a diameter of 0.36 inches.

The following is Wisner’s rendition & info on the subject.
The difference in the old firing pin and the new one is as follows. The old replaced
style, was totally lathe tuned (round). While the new recall style is similar in lathe
turning on the front and back, but in the front midsection it has two flats milled, one
on each side. This makes the center section stronger. Also replaced is the bolt sleeve
lock pin (firing pin guide) which was made to accommodate this different shaped firing
pin
Part number for the new parts are, firing pin =1391ND, bolt sleeve locking pin =1491ND
The word was at the time this recall was in process was that if the firing pin would
break at the mid section and still remain in the gun as two pieces, the possibility of a
premature discharge before the bolt was locked was possible. This apparently was caused
by the firing pin tip (now not having a retracting spring) to be stuck forward, and
thereby slam-firing upon chambering.
The responsibility for the recall apparently was on Olin, as they were the parent company
at time of manufacture. Olin set up regional recall centers at three established US
gunshops. There was a manufacturing delay in the replacement firing pins, and a backlog
occurred, also some collectors did not like the idea of shipping their guns long
distances. Olin then also authorized other gunshops to make the required alterations.
Upon completion of the recall, the shops were to test fire the firearm and to stamp an
assigned letter on the inside top of the receiver as seen thru the magazine well with the
bolt retracted. The letter “B” represented Bolsa Gunsmithing, “L” was Lefever, and “N”
was for Nu-line Guns. The letter “X” apparently was for all the other independent shops.
However this identification information did not get communicated to some of the smaller
shops at the start of the project. The only way to tell if the gun as been modified, if
the ”letter” is not present, is to take the barrel & action out of the stock, remove the
trigger guard assembly and the try to rotate the firing pin by twisting it. If it does
NOT rotate, then the firing pin recall HAS been performed.
