About the Handgun:
The Accu-tek 380 Auto series of pistols are made of stainless steel with an unusually compact design, resembling the Walther TPH externally. The high capacity version has an extended grip to accommodate the additional rounds. The magazine release is on the bottom of the grip. An internal safety will not allow the gun to fire if the magazine is removed. The lighter LT-380 is similar in design but has an aluminum frame.
About the Manufacturer:
This gunmaking business began operations in the late 1980s, producing a variety of sturdy, inexpensive pistols. Virtually all are made of stainless steel. The company was acquired by Excel Industries in 2001.
About the Cartridge:
Designed by John Browning and introduced by Fabrique Nationale of Belgium, this cartridge has achieved world-wide acceptance and has even been adopted as the standard pistol cartridge by several governments. One reason for the round's success is that it is the largest practical cartridge that can be easily adapted to small automatic pocket pistols. Ballistics fall far short of even the 9mm Luger, but still prove adequate for most self-defense situations. The round has established quite a niche position in this role, often being chosen over more traditional small calibers such as the .25 and .32 Autos.
