I have the naa 22 revolver in 22lr,very good quality pistol and surprisingly accurate for a inch and a quarter barrel. I would prefer it in 22 magnum but the price I got it for was too good to turn down.

There is a reason why it's a SINGLE SHOT... You fire it once, and never fire it again.

That might be one I would be afraid to shoot,I have one in 410 that made me very nervous the first shot or two,was not too bad to shoot but I was used to 41 and 44 mags. I just cannot believe they built a 45-70 derringer,whats next 300 mag?

I wanted a derringer for my wife to carry, a .22. The problem with derringers and pistols with no trigger guard is that the trigger pull is very hard. My wife could barely pull the trigger on the derringer she was handling.

There is an out-of-print book called Firearms Curiosa- more strange real firearms between two covers than any book I have ever seen. The last few pages are pure fantasy- joke ads done for Colt years ago- including the Colt all metal derringer in .600 Nitro Express! (also available in 1 inch Spanish Gatling, and .22 Velo Dog) Sorry, but a 45-70 derringer would be about as useful.....

I have shot some ridiculuos weapons in my lifetime, and I can't fathom shooting a 45-70 Government in a derringer platform. I fired a two shot 44 Special Derringer and it really sucked. However, the 45LC/410 isn't too bad. All in all, I really prefer my NAA 5 shot .22 Magnum as derringers go.

I'm going out on a limb here... Any sear on any pistol can be re-worked for a lighter pull. But in a derringer platform, I wouldn't recommend it. The high pull rate on your derringer is there for a REASON! It forces the shooter to grip the derringer tight in your hand, in order to fire it. I lowered the pull rate on my NAA .22 Magnum and I didn't like it, as it fired too easy and I didn't grip it as strong as I should have. The pistol tends to roll upward in to the web of your hand if you don't grip it tight enough.

So, get used to a heavy pull. Have your wife dry-fire it over and over again. You'll be surprized how quickly she will get accustomed to it.
