I just bought 2 n a a companion 22 mag cap n ball cylinders from cabelas in utah for 19.00 each,who knew stainless steel could be so cheap,so why cant i find any ruger old army cylinders for a reasonable price? for now 20 shots as fast as u can change the cylinder,on my back up gun will have to do,watch out vermin,snakes and such:D

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.

Mine bent the cylinder pin when firing compressed loads of 777,and now it seems to bend with heavy loads,I have a new pin ,have you experienced the same? it shoots all over the place ,u can only hit a bear size target at 10 paces (kodiak bear)
