RMAC was founded in 1971.{Rocky Mtn. Arms Company}. It was based on the designs of Dick Casull. Baker and Casull moved to Freedom, Wyoming and opened Freedom Arms. There first pistol was a small .22 short derringer.
RMAC remained in Provo, Utah. They changed their name to NAA{North American Arms}.

Really interesting gun. I'm sure ill own one someday, probably just as a novelty. Although, I've seen two shot versions in .45 acp and other popular calibers. Something like that would be a handy "oh****oh****oh****" gun.

What I was thinking of aren't NAA, but are a similar concept. Bond Arms.

I have 2 of the .22 magnum models,, one is in my vehicle at all times, stored in a legal manner, and one I carry much of the time in a pocket holster. Its size makes it very easy and unobtrusive to carry,, I prefer to carry a 1911 or a snubbie .38, but in hot weather where shorts and t-shirts are the norm, it is a suitable compromise. When I go fishing, slip in a couple of shot cartridges and it patterns well at minute of snake ranges, and as stated, it is surprisingly accurate up to about 10 yards. I'd keep it or use for trading fodder on something else you really want, most shops tend to move them pretty quickly in my area. Take care/

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 tested and wrote about the Gen. 1 version of that 4" "heavy-barreled" 11-ounce stainless Mini-Master for a passed outdoors magazine. I ended up with a second one I have to this day as my five-shot .22 Magnum backpacking pistol. I got them to custom-fit a .22 LR cylinder to go with the .22 Mag I bought. The idea seems to have worked out for them! Works well with Hornady 45 gr. Critical Defense ammo. Nice companion to my 1 lb. (with sling) Ruta Locura RPK .22 Mag rifle...
