Default Anybody ever shoot a North American Arms revolver?

These things are real cute. They are also very tight and well machined.

I'd like to hear about how the 22 mag shoots.

I have a mag that I carry in my pocket. Just the sound would change my mind about attacking me

I got the Mag version and I guess if someone had you by the throat it would work but you have a better chance of hitting someone if you threw it at them if they are more then 5 feet away.lol

The 22 mag with solid bullets offers great penetration, even through bone. Do your part by putting the bullets where they are supposed to be - and it can be a devastating and deadly cartridge, even from the short barrel of the NAA.

For a deep cover firearm for use at "bad breath" distance, the 22 Magnum mini isn't a platform to discount or make fun of... It can be very deadly.

I have a convertible and use it often. It isn't going to drive any tacks at 50 yards or even 5 yards for that matter, but it is perfect for what I use it for. I use the .22 LR cylinder with CCI shot shells for snakes in the yard and I use the .22 Magnum for pocket carry gun. Like said above though, the .22 Magnum is pretty deadly at the "bad breath" range and the shot shells work well up to about 6 feet. They are very well built little guns though and well worth the money in my opinion.

They are dangerous up to a mile and a half.(read the box of ammo). They do have bad triggers, or at least the ones I have had.

No denial about the .22mag round, I love it. I even bought a PMR30 twice instead of the FN57 because after doing several penetration tests I couldn't justify the cost of the pistol or ammo.

I guess the trigger is the biggest complaint I have about mine. Miles has another version of it that is way cool. It has a 3.5 inch octagon barrel and a western looking revolver grip. I bet that thing is nice and accurate. Only $20 more the the other too.
