    Impressive for something with almost nonexistant sights!

    Next question- where did you manage to find .22 magnum? (Haven't seen a box in years)

    Do the shells eject cleanly? The cylinder looks a bit close to the frame in the picture, probably just the angle though.

    @gunbunny Thank you !

    I have several search bots for ammo;


    With the internet, tenacity and a credit card anything can be found.

    Ejection of empties can be tricky. One needs to align the cylinder just so in order to eject spent shells cleanly.

    I have owned one of those for years and want to remind you to be sure to carry it in a pocket holster because they are really bad about picking up pocket-lint and that causes reliability problems. Somewhere around here, I think I've got one in a belt-buckle.

    Mine isn't the "Side-winder" model; I assume that the cylinder swings open on that? Mine, you remove the cylinder pin and roll the entire cylinder out, then use the cylinder rod to push the empty casings out one at a time.

    I have a pic in the OP. yes the cylinder swings out and the rounds eject like on a "big" revolver.

    I've owned other mini's before and regret selling them. Very handy little gun.

    When .22 magnum was plentiful, it made the NAA mini's a great hiking and camping gun. It was small, easy to pack, stainless steel so it could get wet for a while (or sweaty) before being cleaned. Not so much anymore, the rimfire magnum is awfully hard to find.

    Nice piece if engineering there. There is a LGS I frequent where the owner keeps his personal collection of true miniature firearms. Wonderful to look at, I've never asked to handle any because they cost more than "real" guns . [OO]
