AMT Long Slide Hardballer .45 ACP

Over the weekend I got this pristine, in the box AMT Hardballer Longslide. Yes you do recognize that from some where.


The AMT has a 7inch barrel.

Reckon they would still honor that warranty card if I send it in?

So how does it shoot?

Yes, it is reliable. That extra weight and barrel length make it a real pleasure to shoot. To my surprise, the AMT shot the cheapest military grade 230 ball better than 185 grain match loads. Guess it makes sense that they named it the Hard Baller. It was after all designed and tuned to shoot 230 ball.

Above is the 185 gr match
Winchester ranger
federal hi-shock
speer 230 grain ball
remington 230 ball
7 rounds of winchester 230 ball.

All groups shot off a bench with bags at 25 yards.

I have wanted one of these forever and I have to say I am very happy with it.
