North American Arms is known for their pocket revolvers, and this new model is getting interesting. When we reported on the new Ranger II at last year’s SHOT Show, most people were interested in seeing a 4″ barrel. Well, NAA listened and the Ranger II now comes with a 4″ barrel — and night sights.
Chambered for .22 WMR with a heavy five-shot cylinder, this is one of the smallest carry pistols available. The new 4″ barrel adds a lot of effectiveness without significantly reducing its carry-ability. Carry it for protection, or carry it for grouse.
In addition to the 4″ barrel, NAA has added a tritium front sight option. This sits atop the new wider top rib. The contoured areas are also now bead-blasted for a satin look.
The opens with the hammer half-cocked for loading and unloading. There’s also a .22 LR cylinder conversion available and it’s compatible with other Ranger II boot cut grips.
The Ranger II is available in 1.5″, 2.5″ and the 4″ will be available by March 2020. The expected MSRP is under $600. Keep an eye on North American Arms’ website for updates.
