    Are these good guns? I hesitated to buy one at a gun show for $200 canadian, excelent cond with a folding pistole grip stock all stainless. Hour later it was sold. Heavy gun and the reciver was made totaly from stainless. Should I kick my self or be happy because they are crappy guns?

    Don't go kicking yourself. Those .22 AMT's are junk. Look real pretty but don't work (kind of like some politicians, eh?). You did well to let it go.

    I don't remember too clearly. Was the lightning the one that looked like a Ruger Mk. 2?

    Who made the Mk.2 lookalike? I recall it was stainless, had a slightly different grip, and had a weird looking trigger guard, shaped like 2 rings.

    Klaus, AMT did indeed make a stainless .22 pistol based on the Ruger MKII. It didn't seem to catch on. I'm not sure if it pre-dated the Automag-II.
