Or should I say,new short barrel.I've seen pictures of these here before.I believe from Flatgate and always wanted one.I ran into this one at a tiny gun show today and it had to come home.Brand new condition with padded case.
I thought they would be pretty tough to find.They quit making them in 1989 and I just don't remember seeing one.It has a stud on the other side that goes through a hole in the buckle and is pinched by the 2,straight spring wires.The silver button on the front of the buckle is the release button.The setup works really well.
FWIW, F-A does have some grips and some parts in stock for the mini revolvers.
Thanks Flatgate.I didn't know that.
I haven't handled the NA Arms guns but this one is precision made and even has a slick trigger pull.The FA guns have a frame mounted firing pin and a rear sight notch.The NAA guns have a hammer mounted firing pin which would block the view of a rear sight so most models don't have one.
I have read different accounts of the barrel length of these,everything from 1" to 1 3/4".This one measures 1 3/16".The weight empty is 4.4 oz and loaded is 5 oz.
