Default M&P auto knife

I picked up a M&P auto knife recently. It's model SWMP4LS. It's kind of a bulky knife, but it was cool looking and I got it for $15. No box and it has been sharpened. Did I pay a good price for it?
I don't see anything on it saying where it was made. Can I assume it's Chinese?

Well, I found the knife on S&W's site, and on Gunbroker. The action is called the "MAGIC assisted open system". It's got a button to push that opens the knife, that seems like an auto knife to me. It lists at $59 on the S&W site, guys on Gunbroker were selling them at $49. I'm glad I got it. It is a cool knife and I plan to show it off to others who will enjoy it.

Never heard of a auto knife unless, you are talking about a swichblade?

I reckon "auto knife" is the politically correct terminology---preferred by those who prefer to be politically correct---more's the pity!

Got some decent "spring assist" knives by all the makers such as Sog, Benchmade, Kershaw, Gerber and many others these days. Legal in most areas due to the "assist" factor as it takes a nudge from the thumb stud first. My Sog Trident is very quick and for $59 not bad quality either.
