    Anyone shoot the NAA mini .22LR revolver?



    How's the recoil on this little thing? I picked up a Cobra 9mm derringer for $125 but the trigger pull is impossible. Would like a little wallet gun but not sure what to go with.

    I have two both 22mag .. A lite jump on the normal grips not recoil but just big hands tiny grips not easy yo get a lesh ... My go too is my pug model .. Night sights and heavier grip

    But yeah there is no real recoil ..



    Do note unless you get the I think sidewinder model you have to pull the whole cylinder out to reload .. So really it's a 5 and done gun no fast reloads ..



    Also look at the old hi stander derringers .. My other micro last ditch gun

    Mine is fun. I like it mostly for popping cans sitting around the campfire type of shooting. As a carry piece? Meh.

    I have the 1 1/8 barrel with the conversion cylinder. Not much recoil. I generally practice with 22lr and carry 22 mag. So easy to conceal that you can carry it anywhere it is legal. It is a very up close and personal gun. About 12 feet is the most I am very accurate with, but then I am not an expert marksman to begin with. If you want more accuracy, you might want yo look at the NAA Black Widow.

    I have a NAA Pug. Good shooter, not much recoil, at all. My go to, when ultra-covert is necessary.

    I had the one that came with a 22 mag cylinder and 22lr cylinder it was fun to shoot. Recoil is a little snappier with the 22 mag but it isn't bad at all.

    Thanks for the info. Is the sidewinder an NAA model as well?

    Cool

    I had one years ago but my hands were to dang big to get hold of it and thumb cock the hammer quickly.

    NAA makes a neat little folding grip with a pocket clip for large hands that folks say works well but they did not have that when I had mine.

    My "wallet" gun is my G-42.

    I added the folding grip and greatly increased my accuracy over the standard wood grips. It makes it much easier to hold , but a bit bulkier.

    I have an NAA 22LR, no recoil to speak of but with the stock grips it does tend to slide in my hand. Great fun and a good gun to carry when a regular sized gun just isn't practical.

    I had the model that folded into it's own handle. It was fun to shoot. Shouldn't have sold it............

    I have a couple of these little monsters. Yes, for a 22lr there is movement, hate to call it recoil. Nothing that's not manageable. One note of caution, the edge on the cylinder is sharp. Becareful to keep your thumb clear or it will bite you. They are great little guns. good luck

    Interesting that the former owner of a popular gun store in PA. (now deceased) who had every possible handgun available for him to daily carry - carried the smallest NAA Mini in .22 LR every day almost exclusively. True story.

    So much for his mind set on a self defense weapon.
