    Sphinx AT-380M
    This Stainless Steel gun is in like new condition. It is barely used, Round count unknown. It comes with (2) Standard Hi-Cap magazines, Manuals and Original Hard Case.

    The AWESOME Sphinx AT-380M is made by the Swiss and is somewhat rare and is a distinctly European gun. It’s a beautiful piece that’s great for self-defense, backup gun or just to add to your collection.
    The Sphinx AT-380M is extremely compact for its capacity. Only a bit larger than the Walther PPK and a bit shorter than a Sig-Sauer P230, it beats their 7- and 8-round capacities all to **** with its whopping 10+1. It is, of course, bulkier and heavier than these two pistols to accommodate the double-stack mags, but it is absolutely tiny compared to Beretta's Model 84 "Cheetah" 10-rounder.

    “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphinx_Systems”

    Sphinx Systems Limited is a small Swiss-based manufacturer of high quality pistols used mainly by special forces, elite police units and sports shooters.

    SPHINX AT 380 Series

    A sub-compact pistol. This pistol is highly accurate. It is Double Action Only, which can slightly detract from the shooter's ability to produce tighter groupings; however, this pistol was not designed for competitive target shooting—DAO designs such as this have been shown to be easier to operate under stressful situations and therefore preferable to traditional Double Action designs when self-defense is concerned. Tolerances on this pistol are very tight and quality very high, as with all SPHINX pistols. Slightly smaller in general overall dimension than the Walther PPK/S, it also has a larger magazine capacity (10/11/15). The sights are adjustable. Safeties include: 1. an automatic firing-pin block type which precludes the striker from being hit unless the trigger is pulled, eliminating slam-fires etc. 2. Manual firing-pin block safeties on "M" models (similar in function to the Beretta 92F). This pistol is reported to prefer "hotter" ammunition in order to cycle properly until broken in. This is due to its European origin, where hotter ammunition (in comparison to the U.S.) is commonly produced & used. Due to tighter firearms trade restrictions, the AT .380 is no longer imported into the United States.
