Default Folding .22 Revolver

I was watching an old episode of "Cops" today, where this guy was searched and the police officer found a folding .22LR revolver in his pocket. It was stainless or nickel plated and folded into it's own grip, like a chunky folding knife.

Does anyone know the manufacturer / model of this revolver? Looks like something I would like to own, just for fun.

sounds like the NAA minis, http://www.naaminis.com/lr_custcry.html

buy the rostered .22lr or .22mag and then add on the folding grip.

Thank you for the information, guys. It was an episode of "Cops" from the 90's so I had assumed it was from a small & now defunct manufacturer. I'm surprised to find out that I can buy one here, since it's on the roster.

edit: if you buy the magnum the can buy the conversion cylinder for .22lr

that one isn't rostered. You can, however, buy the .22mag version and then send it back to NAA where they'll fit a .22lr cylinder for you. They won't normally sell the cylinder by itself.

If you can get your hands on a "Black Widow" it comes with interchangeable .22lr and .22 mag cylinders.

Nice little gun, I had one for awhile.

I thought roster didn't apply to single action revolvers?

only some single-action revolvers are roster exempt,

Quote:
12133. (a) The provisions of this chapter shall not apply to a single-action revolver that has at least a 5-cartridge capacity with a barrel length of not less than three inches, and meets any of the following specifications:
(1) Was originally manufactured prior to 1900 and is a curio or relic, as defined in Section 478.11 of Title 27 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
(2) Has an overall length measured parallel to the barrel of at least 7 1/2 inches when the handle, frame or receiver, and barrel are assembled.
(3) Has an overall length measured parallel to the barrel of at least 7 1/2 inches when the handle, frame or receiver, and barrel are assembled and that is currently approved for importation into the United States pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (3) of subsection (d) of Section 925 of Title 18 of the United States Code.
if it doesn't meet those specs, it must be drop-tested and then listed on the roster.

There are barrel lengths it must meet for that to be the case.

Cabela's use to sell a black powder version of that pistol. I don't know if they still have it ( I just checked, they do not). You don't need an FFL to purchase a black powder pistols

I actually like the old style folding grip, as it conceals the entire revolver. Not sure what this grip would feel like in the hand though, but .22Mag folding revolver would make a nice toy.

NAA makes some high quality guns. I had a NAA 22lr mini revolver that I sold a while back because I didn't shoot it much but you can tell they are well made and worth having if that's what you are in to.

These are great little guns although they arnt gonna be useful for long distances. one thing which is odd is that the .22wmr/magnum version is easier to keep on target/is more accurate then the .22lr version.

theres even a vid on youtube showing someone hit a balloon at like 100feet or perhaps it was 100 yards, with 2 shots consecutivly so its not a fluke. That guy must have had a crap load of experience with it though. I can barely keep it on a 8X11 sheet of paper at 25 feet.
