Hi, I'm Bert. This Auto Mag website will be a fun and educational place for all. I've been working hard, lo these many past years, on a monumental book about Harry Sanford and his guns. When indicated, your help will be very much appreciated. Enjoy!

Hear Ye.  Hear Ye.

Chapter 2 should be ready for sale by June or July 2013.  I need lots of things for chapters 2 and 3.  Are you ready to part with some rare Auto Mag guns, etc.?  Call or email me.



Two new items for your enjoyment see below!

Hi you all.

I write this on a cloudy day in the Northwest!  I am sorry for not keeping up with this website but I've been enveloped with work and lots of time finishing up Chapter 2 of my 3 chapter book on Auto Mag.

I've been wading through a huge pile of documents and came across this engraved Auto Mag photo.

It has no annotations or information at all.  I don't recollect from whence it came.  All I can be pretty sure about is that Bill Chizar probably did not have this work done.  Can anyone out there identify this gun with some kind of undeniable authentication?  It's worth o hundred dollar bill if you can!  Well, I'm back to finishing up Chapter 2.  It will be 30-50% bigger than Chapter 1.  That includes it's weight as well as number of pages.  Up to now I've been able to purchase 2 sided archival 11X17 photo paper at 65 # weight.  That grade and weight has been discontinued.  I now have to use 86# paper stock.  That represents a 24% increase in individual page weight.  Be ready for a heavy Chapter 2.  Thanks for your continued support.  By the way, I've not heard a peep from those guys that very outspokenly told the world that I'd never write a book About Auto Mag.  No guts, no glory; cowards, we thinks.  Have a great Summer and I still remain,

Your humble servant

Bert M.

Hi Ladies and Gents,

I’m back with some great news!  Lots of you know how hard I’ve been working on my total book of auto Mag.  Well, a small part of it is ready for sale as soon as the copyright papers are filed and go through the federal channels.  There will be two sizes made available for sale.  The first, an 8 by 11 size weighing 3.3 pounds and an 11 by 17 inch coffee table size weighing 6.4 pounds!

Each book has a thick material cover page, hand calligraphied with the title, a 3D print and my name.

Every page is of heavy 2 sided photo paper, the best money can buy.  Each page is separately ink jet printed in heavy, vivid colors.  The rear cover is made of matching color thick and heavy mat board.  Many of you may not purchase this historical novel because of its expense, and I truly understand.  The 8  by 11 copy was produced just for you, since it is approximately the cost of the larger volume.  I’ll be selling the book a chapter at a time as they become available.

Since Chapter 1 is so chock full of info and photos it will be put on sale first, with Chapter 2 to follow in about 6 months.

Along with the technical aspects enumerated about Chapter 1, less the 3D print, Chapter 2 will also contain the complete serial number runs of the Pasadena Auto Mag production, the 200 H serial number run of High standard production, and the serial number runs of the B and C prefix productions.  Also included on a CD or DVD, Larry Grossman will have a truly unique surprise for you, at no additional cost!  Now let’s get down to brass tacks, your cost per copy:

8 by 11         $280.00

11 by 17          $475.00

Please make your desire known to me on my email at bert@automagheaven.com!  Since these books are each separately hand done, I’d like to know approximately how many copies I must purchase the photo paper for and then begin the printing, page by page.  Have fun awaiting your copy.

Be Well,

I remain your humble servant,


Hi all you Auto Mag collectors out there.  Here comes a neat collage for you to enjoy!  I've spent a great deal of time collecting gun magazines that had an Auto Mag on it's cover.  This poster contains all of those Auto Mag covers that I could find, plus Bruce Stark's book!
First off, did I miss any magazine covers?  Secondly, the poster is 13 by 19 inches packed in an archival polybag.  The poster is a high quality photo paper and printed with an ink cartridge printer, using maximum definition and color.
The total cost of the poster including shipping tube, archival sleeve, and shipping and handling is $25.00!  You may have any number from 2-50.  This will be a limited run of 50 prints.  Please order via email (Contact button upper right) and indicate which number you would like and if you wish it dedicated and if so to whom.  It's a beauty.  Enjoy it and Spring.  Summer is on it's way.
Your delighted servant,

Be the first on your block to own a 2013 calendar!

This particular calendar highlights, and is a tribute to, two great icons of the Auto Mag world.  Find Lee Jurras' and Kent Lomont's photos on the front cover as shown.

The calendar portion shows the birth dates of some well known Auto Mag people!

Opposite the calendar page you will find a photo of a Jurras or a Lomont Auto Mag.  Again the photo paper used, and the vividness of the colors, bespeak high quality.  Here's another piece of Auto Mag memorabilia you may keep for years to come.  Enjoy it all for a mere $28.00, shipping and handling included!
