    I know they dropped the 32 topbreak years ago, but anybody hear about a topbreak 22 mag SA that they're developing?

    There's a pic of it on page 11 of the new April Blue Press.

    I saw the same article and got pretty worked up. Haven't been able to find out anything else, but I might send an email to the NAA employee mentioned in the article.

    I was all set to get one of their regular .22mag versions with the swappable .22lr cylinder. I hope this one works the same way.

    I want one. And, could they make in .25 Stevens RF? My guess is that we'd get ammo, if they built the gun. Elmer always wanted a modern .25 RF, so maybe I do too.

    I don't want any oddball ammo to hunt down. Trying to get 9mm Mak has kept me pretty frizzled last few days...:rolleyes: I found decent cheap ball, but hollow point, forget it.

    Yeah, I'll be very interested in adding this little devil to the collection, too. I'm thinking maybe scale it up the size of the "Earl" and style it a bit like the S&W top breaks. :D It already looks a bit like one. A 4" barrel and a bit bigger grip would be neat, though. :D But, I could see that one with a folding holster grip for pocket carry.

    That's cool, it went to nearly the top of my list of 'to buy' guns.

    Might not be available with interchangable cylinders.

    No biggy for me. I have a .22 NAA, don't have a .22 mag. This one would be a nifty addition to the family. It's not a gun I NEED, but I don't buy guns for need anymore. :D

    I've been wanting a 22mag mini and that is for me.
    Please tell me there's a release date?

    The world needs more top-break .22s for fun.

    Wish they'd make a bigger one.

    Ever shot a NAA magnum kinda like grapping a 7 mag at the muzzle and firing. I have a 22lr NAA for some reason but its not like the mag. To much commotion way to close to my fingers for me. I do like the break top and hope they offer it in 22 lr. I would like to see a comparsion between a 22 mag and a 22lr in a inch and half barrel. Can't imagine the blast woud be worth the extra fps.

    Interesting. I guess I should just flush the .22 Mag top break that I have been designing to break into their market with now...

    Or maybe not.

    Fire next to my finger? Makes it sound like my SP101 with 125 grain JHPs. :rolleyes: Besides, muzzle flash is neat, impresses bystanders. :D

    This design does away with the one drawback to the mini's. I think it's well worth a small increase in weight and bulk.

    Now who's gonna offer speedloaders for it?

    Not the first time in last 20 years a top break made it thru design phase with none ever getting on shelves.
