I'm looking for one or the other.
PE is "sexier" but the AMT really is more practical.

Is there such an animal as an AMT with PE57 garb ?

Not 100% but I don't think the PE57 furniture/barrel shroud will fit on an AMT. If you are talking about an AMT that has grenade snap rings on the barrel and a bayonet lug, supposedly there were like a handful of SIG 510-4's brought in during the 60's in semiautomatic only...doubt either one of us will ever find one.

I guess you might find an AMT that the owner has had a gunsmith install a military 510-4 barrel on, or had a custom barrel shroud replicating the look of the original installed, but I don't think I've seen one for sale recently...I think there was an article on this in a recent Shotgun News.
