My Gunshow Find: NAA Pug .22 Magnum
Went to a gun show Saturday morning in Valley Forge, PA and picked up this little pocket rocket:
It's a North American Arms PUG; a .22 magnum 5-shot mini revolver. I think I'll use it for summer shorts and t-shirt carry.
The name “Pug” may have derived from the
Latin Pugnus, meaning Fist. With this in
mind, the NAA Pug can be characterized as
multum in parvo (“much in little”) in reference
to the small and convenient size.
Squat and sturdy like its namesake dog, The
NAA Pug is chambered in 22 Magnum and
sports a 1” heavy barrel. You can count on
this stocky companion to deliver a bite even
worse than his bark.
Slightly oversized pebble-textured rubber
grips enable the handler to keep a firm
“leash” on this pocket-sized puppy. The XS
sighting system provides a quick sight
picture and will enable the handler to direct
The pedigree is pure North American Arms.
