Video - Things to be Aware of on the ACG Diablo Pistol

The 2 halves of the grips are assembled with glue filler which can become separated, the barrel latch mechanism may cause a rattle and the guns can have a quirky and extra long 2 stage trigger.
These are a few of the issues mentioned from the buyer of two AGC Diablo 12 gauge pistols made by American Gun Craft.

There is a guy on another forum who is just "gaga" about these guns, and never says a word about those things.

Personally, I don't care for them, especially for the price.

Yeah same here. Not impressed, but if it's fun for some it's a good thing. To each their own.
Liberty and freedom often offends those who understand neither.

I am sorry, but that video was funny. The guy obviously loves the guns and everything he is saying about them are reasons he should be hating them. He is obviously upset, but isn't willing to cut his losses.

I’d buy the Pedersoli before I bought that, especially from what I’ve seen.

Have had the same thought, ever since the initial post. There is another that I have not been able to locate domestically. It's made in the Chech republic, this time my "spell-check" did not help. Anyway, is called; Great-Guns, over and under Derringer. I know it will be pricey but hope to find on, some day.

Be Safe !!!
