With this new addition to the gun, we will be able to do just that.”


With this change, The Ranger II will nowbe in perfect line with the rest of the mini revolvers offered at North American Arms as the bead blasted finish mimics the same factory finish applied to all mini revolvers at NAA. The solid ribbed barrel will also employ a wider sight rib which will open up the possibility of future sight configurations. Leaving opportunity for growth in options for The Ranger II in the future. Additionally, this will add more weight to the gun, reducing muzzle flip and recoil overall.
