Thanks to all for the responses. That is precisely what I was looking for. I have a pretty good stable of .22 LRs, both handguns and rifles and there is just "something" about the .22 WMR that I like. I will add one of these puppies to my collection and look forward to punching holes in stuff with it.

The .22 Magnum out of these small, short-barreled guns is pretty impressive. The flash and bang are like a .357 but without the recoil.

I've had mine (17HMR, Black Widow) for several years and have shot several of the smaller 22 mag/22 lr models. The firearms are built to swiss-watch standards, with tight tolerances and lots of meat in the small parts. The company offers great CS, with no questions asked repairs. I prefer the black widow grip rather than the birds-head grips on the smaller frame models. As far as accuracy, I can place 5/5 in a paper plate at 25 yards anytime I care to. I eyeballing the new break-top model, but am waiting till the prices come down a little before I order one.

Default Range Report

I picked up an NAA Mini Revolver last week and shot it this past weekend. I selected the .22lr / magnum combo, with the 1 5/8" barrel. I agree with those who are impressed with the quality and workmanship of the little revolvers, it is top notch. I've owned .22 mag. derringers before, and I must say that I was surprised by the recoil of the magnum loads. In the derringers it was not as intense, but those were heavier guns.

I put about 30 or so rounds of magnum and about 20 LR through it, without a hiccup. I had to get pretty creative with Kentucky "windage" while using the sights. At about 10 yards, it shot consistently 4-5 inches low. I had much better accuracy point shooting. I think this will be a keeper, as a friend of mine described them as a "taking out the trash gun."

Thanks again to all of those who helped me making the purchasing decision.

You can always file a little off the front sight & correct that height problem

Uh oh. Now you've done it. I hadn't actually considered that, so now it is going to bug me, but I am loathe to take metal removal tools to my firearms. I'm going to have to give that some thought.

It will also help with the "Quick Draw"!
