Our Assessment: This AMT Back-Up is a double-action only semi-automatic pistol chambered for .38 Super rounds. It was manufactured when the company was based in Irwindale, California. The Back-Up is designed to be a compact self-defense handgun and is perfect for concealed carry. Most of the Back-Up models are chambered for .380 ACP, but not this one! This double-action-only pistol is chambered for the potent .38 Super cartridge. With six round magazines, this is a small pistol that packs quite a punch. The pistol has a durable stainless steel finish and it remains mechanically sound. The .38 Super Back-Ups are not particularly common and would also make a great option for an AMT or pocket pistol collector. This is a solid option that you do not want to miss out on!
