Will they fit a metallic-cartridge NAA Mini frame, and will a rimfire NAA Mini hammer fire those ?

I was always under the impression the BP cylinders weren't interchangeable with metallic cylinders.

They definitely are not interchangeable as the Companion was made strictly for the b/p cylinders. That was a steal for those cylinders; do they have any more, they're considerably more from NAA.

I was about to sell mine til I read about using Bullseye and it became an all new experience. I had tried ffff Goex and pyrodex and even triple7 in 3f, the triple 7 was better than the rest, but still below 22lr with my Mag Companion. Put 1.9 of B eye and suddenly it was a true mag. Now all I got to do is work out aiming, as it's nowhere near where it was shooting with the black.
