MAPLEWOOD, NJ - -(AmmoLand.com)- Endurance testing of the Palm Pistol prototype was completed in August, 2010.

The procedure consisted of firing 10,000 standard rounds and 100 proof loads. Every 500 rounds, the gun was completely disassembled and subjected to wet fluorescent magnetic particle inspection (MPI) by an ASTM certified non-destructive testing laboratory.

The five structurally critical components (barrel, latch, receiver, barrel pivot pin and latch pivot pin) all withstood the test and passed with “no indications found.” Findings concluded the design was robust and structurally safe. The next task is the drop test. There were some functional/ergonomic issues that surfaced which will be addressed in the production model.

We have started the process of obtaining production quotes from the various manufacturing specialties such as investment casting, wire EDM, plastics injection molding, stamping, etc.

We do not yet have an estimate on production start date or retail cost.

Concurrently, we are exploring the development of a multi-projectile .38 special cartridge optimized for the Palm Pistol. This will be suitable for other short barreled self-defense firearms such as Derringers and snub nosed revolvers.

About:
The Palm Pistol is an ergonomically innovative single shot double action only defensive firearm chambered in 9mm that may be fired using either hand without regard to orientation of the stock. Suited for home defense, concealed carry or as a backup gun. It is also ideal for seniors, disabled or others who may have limited strength or manual dexterity. Using the thumb instead of the index finger for firing, it significantly reduces muzzle drift, one of the principal causes of inaccurate targeting. Point and shoot couldn’t be easier.
