North American Arms Black Widow

North American Arms Black Widow

There are plenty of pocket pistols on the market today, but few can compete with the North American Arms Black Widow in size and portability. This five-shot, single-action, mini-revolver is only about 5¾-inches long, and although its frame and cylinder are made of stainless steel, the gun weighs less than 9 ounces.

The Black Widow is chambered in .22 WMR, better known as .22 Mag. If you’re looking for a hide-it-anywhere backup gun, or even a backup to your backup gun, the Black Widow will fit, literally.

You can get a closer look at the North American Arms Black Widow in the video below, hosted by Shooting Illustrated Editor-in-Chief Adam Heggenstaller.

Note: The Black Widow featured in the video is equipped with the VENOM laser from LaserLyte. This is not included on the out-of-the-box model.
