North American Arms?
1 Attachment(s)
i just picked up this little .22 in a trade and was wondering what the used retail value of it is? it's in pretty good shape just normal wear marks from use and maybe getting carried around in somebody's pocket (although i wouldn't wanna carry this gun around) it shoots really nice and is even kinda accurate for only having a 3/4 inch barrel. im riding the fence right now if i wanna keep it, trade it or just try to outright sell it. anybody that knows these little pistols please tell me about em cause I've never seen one before.

Check out the link below to Gun Broker... I don't know your exact model but used NAA .22's seem to be priced from $130.00 and up. Model and condition will dictate and remember... these are mostly "asking" prices.

The way to tell is to look at the number of bids. Finding the same model with many bids will give you a decent idea of what some folks are willing to pay.

1 bid only typically means the seller bid there minimum price rather that setting a "reserve minimum" for there gun.

Good Luck

While I think that these guns are generally overpriced, I rarely see a used on in good condition go for under $150.00, and it's not uncommon to see them in the $200.00 range.

One of the (many) guns I wish I hadn't traded away was a NAA .22 magnum mini revolver with a 4" barrel. It was the perfect boot gun and more accurate than one would expect. Before Texas had a CCL I would put mine in a #10 enevelope, and keep the enevelope in the side pocket of my car door. Easy to get to, but no "plain sight".

They are well made little guns.

I like the "Earl" models.

Neat pistol...

The question would not be 'how to conceal', but rather 'how to retrieve'!

Their firearms are very well made. I can't remember the connection at the moment but I believe Dick Casull had something to do with NAA before he went on to start Freedom Arms who make some of the finest revolvers ever made. I have two of NAA's guns and they are nice guns for what they are. I put a holster grip on the one like yours. The other is a 22lr/22 mag conversion. They also made a belt buckle version. The 23rd Edition of the Standard Catalog of Firearms give your gun a value of Exc. $175 and V.G. $150. Also the cylinder has notches between each chamber that are put there to allow you to lower the hammer into one of those notches so it will be safely between case rims when fully loaded with five rounds.

I tried one once and the trigger pull was impossible. How is yours?

it's a little stiff for a single action i think.... but not impossible maybe somewhere around 5-7 lbs

I have the 22lr 22mag convertible with the 7/8" barrel. Very nice well built gun. I have carried it in a homemade leather pocket holster. It is nice to have when bicycling or working out at the gym when anything else would be obvious. The trigger is heavy. But there is no trigger guard. I would not want a 2lb trigger on a gun like that.
