NAA "Super Companion" mini mouse revolver
« on: September 15, 2011, 04:56:07 PM »
You'll have your pocket revolvers, your Derringers and your "mouse" guns.  But the ultimate in small, were talking a mini mouse revolver here, has got to be the NAA "Super Companion" black powder .22 caliber cap 'n ball revolver.  I ordered this a couple of years ago directly from North American Arms and it was delivered in a few days to my door.  When you open the tough, locakable storage and travel case you will find two levels of goodies that will amaze the mind.





The contents being:

The Super Companion revolver on NAA's .22 magnum frame and cylinder.
extra cylinder
loading tool
decent leather mexican loop flap holster
powder measure
allen wrench to remove nipples
a bag of 250 .22 lead conical bullets.
buckskin bullet bag
nipple pick
brass lock for the trave/storage case
assorted owners manual, accessory catalog, cards, adversiments and such.

You will be wondering how they got all that stuff in the small travel case.

The revolver is very well made right here in the U.S.A. of stainless steel.  It has a very nice brushed finish.  Did I say it was very nicely made?  The grips are pleasant stabilized laminated wood.  A trigger guard on a dimunitive 5 shot revolver of this size would be out of place and almost half the size of the revolver.  The action is smooth, strong and positive.  I was pleased with its heft and it felt good in the hand.





The loading tool is a simple design also made of stainless steel.  I dont think you'll win any speed loading contest with it but you will have an extra cylinder that should make your firing of 10 rounds pretty quickly after you get the hang of exchanging the cylinders out.





I think I paid around $250 for you have seen it the picturess which makes it a bargain for being made here is U.S.A. and of a quality which is rare today.  I wish I would have shot it by now but since I'm retired I've got other things to do, make and find.  With the price going over $1800.00 an ounce I enjoy spending hot summer days in a cool mountain stream looking for this stuff.




Maybe soon

Is the spare cylinder standard, or did you have to order it?

If I remember right you can just buy the revolver itself but in the "Kit" you get everything you see in the pictures.  The price of the kit wasn't really that much more.  And I think the price of the kit was $259 or $279.  Again that was over 2 years ago.

Nice NAA, but if I had a pocket full of that yellow stuff I would be packing several guns  8)

That is sweet!!  +1 on the want a range report!
Its better collecting Cap n Ball than Milsurp. Although the M1941 Johnson MG is a nice piece of equipment, I would rather get a reputation for sitting around playing with my Remingtons.

 I have one of those too. Neat little gun. I keep it loaded due to the stainless & it has gone 6+ months & fired perfectly. A soda can isn't in a whole lot of danger beyond 50' but you could scare the Hell out of somebody with the noise & flash.  ;)
I reckon so

 I never have weighed it. I got mine with a whole bunch of goodies, including the dipper. I use 5F Swiss (aka Null B). it uses 22 short 29gr bullets.

My NAA super Cap and Ball is my second favorite gun (after the Remmy).
I had stopped shooting it because I couldn't get Remington #11 caps.
Well, I just got some and took the mini to the range.

I had tried to sift my 3F Pyrodex down to 4F but it was a waste of time.
There was no more power, as far as I could tell.
I am looking around for some 4F powder to buy without paying for Has-Mat shipping.

Fresh caps firing on all chambers is a good way to start off a shooting season.

My targets were set 5 yards away, I was able to hit the paper O.K.

After a few rounds I now know I have to shoot this gun with one hand.

I think it is a smoothbore... YES?

I can't see any rifling and there is no mention of it in the NAA instructions or on the website.

 Mine is rifled. I'll check the number on the dipper & weigh a charge later.

 The dipper is 0.3 cc & the charge weighs 4.8gr. That means 1458 shots/lb  :)
