The Earl .22 Magnum Handgun – New from North American Arms
North American Arms – -(TheFirearmBlog.com)- The Earl is a five-shot, single action 1860'sstyled mini-revolver chambered in .22 Magnum. Named after the NAA gunsmith who originally developed the product, with its faux loading lever (which secures the cylinder pin), “The Earl” resembles a 150 year old percussion revolver then common in the Old West.
With its heavy octagonal barrel, top strap channel and bead front sight, “The Earl” could become your favorite plinker (pray for the snake, rodent or tin can that dares cross your path!).
With available flap holster of belt-grade leather, strap on “The Earl” for an imaginative trip back to a simpler time.
As another example of NAA's craftsmanship and attention to detail – the closer you look, the better we look.

North American Arms is pleased to announce that it's recently introduced new .22 WMR plinker, “The Earl”, will be available for sale in CA. “The Earl” enjoys an exemption from the regulations outlined in CA SB 15 specifically available to 5+ shot single action revolvers with barrels 3″ in length and an overall length 7. 5″. This exemption means that these firearms need undergo no testing or manufacturer's certification requirements. Similarly, NAA will also make available in CA its MiniMaster models which enjoy the same exemption.
North American Arms will continue to sell in CA its 22MS and 22LR models which are listed in the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale.
– It should be noted that the firearms actions of all NAA revolvers are functionally identical and that, when the hammer is properly seated in the cylinder safety slot, the gun is perfectly safe from accidental discharge due to a drop.
