North American 22LR Revolver


October 2, 2005, 07:02 PM
Picked one up at Charlotte today for pretty good price, but I just can't imagine shooting the thing. Its the smallest one and I can barely get ahold of it and I have a small hand. I'm thinking it might jump outta my hand. Is that likely?

Congrat's on your new NAA "mini" .22LR. I have one of these, and one of
the magnums with the shortest barrel possible on both! :uhoh: Makes for an
excellent "deep cover" gun~! :D

The gap, dude, the gap!
That thing isn't going to burn your fingernail right off at the knuckle?!?!?!?
Have you ever fired it?

Have any of you ever fired one of these? There's one (in a belt buckle) at my local gun shop that I've contemplated buying.

Can you hit anything with it?

What's a good price for one of these?

I started firing mine with shorts, no big deal, use Thunderbolts now. I did whittle out an oversized pair of grips, really helps. Don't lay your index finger alongside and pull the trigger with your middle finger. I've heard some folks lost the tip of their finger that way.

There is a particular grip that suits these diminutive pieces - hard to describe but I hold mine between middle finger and palm - it works.

I favor the CCI Maxi-mags or better (+V) - but have to say - one thing to remember is rimfires can fail! It is tho a real easy BUG to conceal!

EddieCoyle, you asked about price: gun show prices were $179-189 NIB. I got this one used for $110 otd with an IWB holster made for it. Had a tiny bit of surface rust on barrel which came off easily.

Wow. The used one I saw was $300.

Got mine NIB (with doc's, pocket holster, and pistol rug) for $129.95; but
that was back in Oct. of 1998~! :D

Well made little guns. Don't be afraid to shoot it. Currently own the .22 magnum, with the extra .22 lr cylinder, and a smaller .22 lr model. I have fired hundreds of rounds in each gun. With some practice you can get pretty good with them.

I've got one and I love it. You just need to get used to it a little. I usually hook it with my middle finger and support it with my palm.

This little guy is pretty loud. It usually slides a little when I fire it leaving it pointed a little high. I regrip while I cock it for the next round.

If you want a belt buckle that should only cost about $45. They also have whats called a holster grip. I would like to get one of these. Normally when I carry it I use a clip on IWB holster that I just put in my pocket.

I got mine for $150 with the little holster. Lightly used.

I found a job that required me to wear suit pants and a tucked button up shirt. The snubby I had was too heavy and these pants printed too much. This little gun was all I could afford at the time as a small carry gun. I couldn't even afford a keltec. I had seen one of these before and had been wanting one anyway.

These are excellent quality guns. I've got one of the black widows in 17HMR. I'd like to get one of the minirevolvers in 17Mach2. I've got a couple of of Guardians on my list too.

Customer sevice at NAA is said to be excellent.

It's a great little gun. Very loud. I have shot 22 magnum rounds out of it and would definitely not want to be on the receiving end.

I am surprisngly accurate with it.

Yeah Joe, I know what you are saying 'bout being loud~! ;)

I use my NAA .22 magnum (and sometimes the .22LR) as a noise
maker of New Year's Eve. :uhoh: :eek:

I thought the 22lr was loud. I was proved wrong when I first fired my 17HMR Black Widow. :eek:

I have one with the holster grips - makes the gun FAR easier to hold and shoot. I would seriously consider picking up a set, then you could carry it hoslter-less as the grips cover the trigger.

Surprisingly nice to shoot and more accurate than I would have thought. Shot several loads thru, then found some diff ammo to try, but forgot to put the ear muffs on. LOUD is not the word! My ears (I have tinitus anyway) are still ringing from just one shot. :banghead:
