Our automags named after the real steel version?

Are automags named after the real steel version?
They appear to the same shape and have the same appearance: stainless steel and aluminum.

Yes, Tom has said he named it after the firearms.

The look of the paintgun was also fashioned after the firearm

I did own one of the later .30 Automags. Akward and uncomfortable to fire.
That was during that period in the early 90s when all those massive semiauto handguns were hitting the market.

I had noticed the similarities during a eBay search.

I had noticed the similarities during a eBay search. automag brings up both the paintball and the real steel versions. I had brought up a ton of Autumag sales and parts yesterday on eBay. Today I cannot find nearly as many for some reason. Perhaps the spelling or something.

I always liked shooting the .30Carbine AutomagIII's . . . low recoil, massive muzzle flash, lots of fun

My problem was the grip. It was such an... obtuse shape, that it never felt right.
Believe it or not, I bought mine at Walmart!

I sold it, and bought Grizzly 50AE. Looked like a 45, and was more comfortable to hold, but not to fire. So, hated that one, and sold it too. (Also bought at Walmart).

I then bought an Aluminium Desert eagle in .44. Easy to shoot. Easy to hold. A dream gun, except it was extremely fussy with ammo. So.. sold it.

Broken down any bought a .454 Taurus. There was a gun I liked for hunting. Comfortable, and easy to shoot.
Unfortunetly, I got married, and was told to sell all my guns.... And I do what I am told. that is the secret to marriage.
