I had to poke the round into the chamber, close the slide, fire it, then pull the slide back and manually dump the empty out. Eventually, the barrel burst. The lug tore a section out of the barrel.
That's the short version of the story.
I think the one in "Terminator" also jammed when Arnold was shooting the wrong Saaaaara Connor. Something fell off the gun on the last shot.
When I was in retail firearms, the AMT Back Up 380 was also a lemon. Most of them came back for repair.
