NAA Ranger

Has anyone seen or purchased the new NAA Ranger? If you have any thoughts?

I've only seen it online. I have the .22 Magnum NAA mini. At first I thought the Ranger was interesting, but for a gun I carry when I can't carry anything bigger, the improved reload ability isn't worth the extra money and weight. I can't imagine a situation with the mini where I'd be thinking about reloading rather than retreating. The Ranger would make plinking more fun, though.

From what I understand the first batch was a limited run and were all pre-sold. They were planning on another production run sometime in the future but I think it was supposed to be late summer at the earliest. I'm going to be really tempted to buy one. It's a lot for a little 22 but I love top-breaks and you don't have a lot of options if you want a new one these days.

I am with you. I want it because I like Top Breaks. I have to many other guns that take priority on the wish for that kinda money though. I agree that the .22 mag mini is last ditch but I thought the ranger was interesting.

NAA has announced that they will not be making The Ranger breaktop a regular production model. They were too expensive to produce and could not get the cost reductions they were expecting from regular production and therefore they were not making any money on them.

Yeah, the story is on the www.naaminis.com page - in Sandy's soapbox. Too bad, I saw one for $400 and passed on it. Now it will be collectible - until I buy one and then they will decide to make a zillion.

Guns - the gun rag, has a big story on what a great gun it is - get one now, blah, blah - OOPS!

Man, I'm totally bummed. Not so much because I wanted a small, top-break .22 Mag... but because I really wanted to see them build these, market them and have them go really HOT, spurring on someone else to build some top-break full size revolvers. .22LR, .38 Special, maybe a .32 H&R Mag.

I would love to own a full size top break and I don't want a 120-year old relic.

Also, I figured for sure my bro-in-law would buy one of these when they hit the market and I'd at least get to play with his a little bit.

NAA Breaktop .22 mag

Thank goodness I had the common sense to get one. My gut feeling said they were a little pricy to go full production. But, they are built like a Swiss watch.
