Black Widow Mini-Revolver Review
I tried the .22 caliber NAA Black Widow Mini-Revolver
yesterday. It belonged to a friend who was shooting next to me at the range.
He carried the revolver in a
small pocket holster which slipped easily into
an out of his pocket. The best thing about this revolver is its small size
and lightweight. It is an excellent choice for a pocket weapon as long as
you don't mind the small caliber size of the bullet and the
single action capability of the gun. After each round fired you have to
pull back the hammer to fire it again.
During my test of the revolver I found it to be
surprisingly powerful and accurate. I was used to shooting 22LR caliber
ammunition from my handguns and found the .22
magnum ammunition used in this revolver to be much more powerful.
Black Widow Mini-Revolver Problems
One of my problems that I had with this revolver is that the handle size is so small that with my "weak" right hand
I felt as if it were going to "jump" out of my hand with each trigger pull.
You need to have strong hands and good grip for firing this revolver. Since
I have some nerve related damage that effects the strength of my right hand,
this gun may not be a good choice for me.
This is not a rapid fire gun in as much as you have
to pull the hammer back every time you fire. You're limited to five rounds
of ammunition. If you can live with these limitations then it is an
excellent gun for pocket carry due to its small size and light weight.
Something that did bother me about this gun was the
fact that I would have to "think" every time I shot it. Due to its small
size I used extreme care as to the placement of my hands on the gun, the
pulling back of the hammer and the squeezing of the trigger. The gun has no
trigger guard. In a self defense scenario where I would probably be panicked
and shaking, I don't want to (and probably couldn't) do a lot of thinking
about how to shoot the gun. I just want to grab and shoot. I would be a
little afraid to do that with this gun, but that made just be because I am
not familiar with it. With more practice, who knows?
I found nothing wrong with the quality of the gun.
It appeared to be very solid and well constructed. If it wasn't for my weak
hands, I would probably buy one.

Subject: Manually Cocking the NAA Black Widow
Many of us have figured out the direct relationship
between single action and the necessity to manually cock the gun between
shots. Just hang onto the handle and keep the barrel pointed down range. The
NAA Black Widow elegantly fills a niche.

There are many imitations of that black widow .22 magnum in the Philippines
that is not accurate and reliable...
