The Live Free Armory AMP is the perfect blend of precision and feel of a traditional steel pistol without compromising the reliability and comfort of a modern polymer handgun. This Aluminum Match-Grade Pistol was designed by a team of engineers, competitive shooters and law enforcement with the purpose of developing the ultimate mission ready pistol that they would depend their own life on.
The Fire Control Unit is precision CNC machined out of heat-treated 416 Stainless Steel. This design allows for the rails to be machined perfectly flat to each other and held to a .0005 specification to reduce any unnecessary play seen in many traditional firearms.
The AMP's aluminum milled frame reduces flex and recoil while shooting. The skeletonized 1911-angled grip frame allows for custom and aftermarket grip panels to modify for an intuitive and reliable grip. The frame features an extended beavertail that allows the pistol to sit lower and more comfortably in the shooter's hand for better recoil control and improved accuracy.
The trigger, barrel, slide, sights and most internals are Glock compatible.
The AMP slide is machined with stepped quad windows and deeper serrations on the slide to enhance grip, reduce weight and improve cycling speed. The slide comes standard with an RMR optic cut to directly mount a sight without cumbersome plates or adapters.
The match-grade nitrided fluted barrel is honed, burnished to an 8-micron finish, and rifle cut for unparalleled accuracy. Whether it be giving you the next competitive edge on the field or the security you need for home defense, the AMP is ready for any mission.
The AMP comes with Live Free Armory’s lifetime warranty. For more information, visit LiveFreeArmory.com.
