North American Arms Pug
Convenient, reliable and effective are the three words that North American Arms uses to describe its products, which include a full line of semi-automatic pistols and mini revolvers that are catered specifically to the concealed carry market. Founded by owner Sandy Chisholm in 1971 as Rocky Mountain Arms, the company, which finds its headquarters in Provo, Utah, soon changed their name to North American Arms just prior to becoming a staple in the personal protection industry. With over 40 years of experience and hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers, North American Arms seeks to expand their line and customer base with the new North American Arms Pug, one of their iconic mini revolvers that truly embody the company's promises of convenience, reliability and effectiveness.
Despite now being a part of the North American Arms family, the original design for the mini revolver was actually first developed by Freedom Arms of Freedom, Wyoming. The company, which was originally founded in 1978 to produce the first mini revolver, designed a five-shot revolver chambered for the .22 LR cartridge known as "The Patriot." The design would later be sold to North American Arms, who took over the production and design of all new mini revolvers, including the now-famous North American Arms Pug.
The North American Arms Pug boasts a design that includes a heavy vented barrel and an oversized rubber grip that is sure to garner a few comments from friends and onlookers. The Pug also features a one-inch barrel alongside an overall length of 4 1/2 inches. Of course, the weight of the revolver is also quite noteworthy. At just 6.4 ounces when unloaded, the Pug's unique combination of light weight and miniscule dimensions make this plinker a worthy companion for concealed carry. Featuring a smooth single-action spur trigger, the North American Arms Pug boasts a light trigger pull and a surprisingly crisp performance right out of the box. Additionally, like all North American Arms mini revolvers, the Pug utilizes a halfway notch cylinder, which allows the hammer to rest safely and securely, removing the possibility of an accidental discharge. Additionally, the Pug features an adjustable XS sighting system with a white dot front sight. As noted, this mini revolver features a five-shot cylinder that is chambered for the .22 Magnum cartridge.
The North American Arms Pug is one pup that you are definitely going to want to unleash every now and then. It is a perfect choice for:
