Our Assessment: This IAI AutoMag III is chambered .30 Carbine, which was developed for the M1 Carbine just before WWII. The .30 Carbine round is a light rifle caliber, so it could be expected to feel like a heavy pistol round. This Automag III can handle it, being a beefy pistol with a stainless steel construction. The Automag III was designed by Harry Sanford, who developed the original Automag. This pistol is in about Excellent condition, exhibiting only minor marks and is equipped with one 8-round magazine. This one has a great bore and mechanics, it should be a fun shooter for years to come. Please see our photos and good luck!
