    I’ll buy that.

  • Tom Stone

    Better than a small broken bottle.

  • AJ187

    Finally, a affordable break top revolver.

    I think it will make them more viable as a fun plinker…. This shoudl drive sales for a already popular little gun. Price is steep however.

  • http://gunmart.blogspot.com Gunmart

    They are slated for September??? And they say price will be less then $500.

    That’s awesome! I really want one.

    dammit NAA, I was perfectly happy with my “remove cylinder to load” .22 mag mini until I saw this.

  • chris

    ME WANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jamin

    Hrm.
    I bought a .22 NAA mini for my sister for her CCW because it had the half detents on the cylinder and the folding grip over the trigger.

    My only complaint was the effort it took to pull the cylinder out and reload with the tiny pins and all. But safety and reliability > effort.

    I wonder if they’ll let me trade up to this one. :p

  • Mactrekkie

    Definitely going to be my new super concealed carry weapon. Tired of this P-32.

  • Woodroez

    It looks like the way the break action is actuated might make it impossible to use that laser sight on it. I don’t think I would have gotten that laser anyway, but that’s a bit of a bummer.

    Sadly, the lack of an exposed cylinder pin means no bayonet attachment, either :D

    FAR more user-friendly and utilitarian IMO than the current solid-frame, remove-cylinder-to-load Mini-Revolver(and I’ve owned – and subsequently sold – two Mini-Revs)…no more fumbling/dropping the cylinder pin, or a loaded cylinder, while loading/unloading – especially at a public range, during a cease-fire, while everybody else on the line is waiting for YOU to unload and show clear…massive time-saver during a Basic Pistol or CCW class too, especially for novice shooters who thought the gun looked “cute” and bought it without considering its “challenging” handling qualities under stress or time pressure.

    I am already considering buying one to let beginning shooters evaluate, as well as for possible use as a personal hideout gun.

    I could go for one of those!

  • Cymond

    Pros: Neat, more fun to shoot, I have a thing for top-break revolvers
    Cons: Cost, uncertain availability.

    The estimated price is more than double the cost of a comparable solid-frame model. However, it would be a lot of fun to have a Mini Master based on this. The standard MM is on my list already. Unfortunately, it won’t come anywhere close to fully extracting .22 WMR. The extractor only reaches 3/8″ and my .22 LR shells measure over 1/2″ long. Do I want it? Yeah! Will I buy it? Not soon at that price. A lot of things rank higher on the wishlist.

  • Matt

    Ehh it seems much easier tooad by I don’t thing it looks as good as the solid frames.

    The speed up in reload doesnt really interest me much. If I have to reload a mini revolver under fire I’m pretty much screwed allready.

  • Roadkill

    This is really neat. I’ve long wanted a break open, just for shits and giggles. If they made one like the mini-master, it would be a really neat small snake gun. For times you want to bring that big .45, but you want the light .22mag shot for small pests at low weight. With the recommended price, I wouldn’t be quick to get this though. The most I’d pay is $300.

  • DaveP.

    MSRP doesn’t equal store retail price, especially here in little ol’ gun-freindly NC. “Less than $500″ covers a lot of turf. I’d certainly consider one if the store price is less than $300… which is about the sweet spot for impulse purchases anyway, and therefore about the price point that NAA should be shooting for.

  • Bryan S

    Where do you guys get fun to shoot? Fun may be being able to hold onto a gun with a whole 2 fingers, but for those of us taller than 3′ tall and lacking purple or green hair, I would say an interesting novelty.

  • http://www.nitroexpress.com Mehul Kamdar

    I will buy one. My first revolver was a Webley Mk III top break. I’d love it if NAA would go bigger in the future and produce larger chamberings. This is the kind of product that gets my old heart warmed up. :)

  • Scrounger

    The price is $450 and must be ordered directly from the NAA factory.

  • Scrounger

    The trial run of the break top NAA 22 mags were shipped on Oct. 22 and delivered on Oct. 26 to the FFLs of those who placed factpru orders by the cutoff date. //// I got mine.

    That is so cool!

  • Roger

    i WILL BUY ONE BECAUSE I CAN……
