About four years ago, North American Arms (NAA) released the Ranger Mini revolver. It was a tiny stainless steel break-top .22 Magnum single-action which bore a striking resemblance to the Navy Schofield Founder’s Model 45 Colt. Although this revolver was well-received by media members and customers alike, it proved to be too expensive to produce and was discontinued.

Now NAA is ready to take another crack at the break-top concept with the redesigned Ranger II. The Schofield-like release mechanism has been replaced with a sturdy, simplified configuration which is less expensive to produce. A firm release date and retail prices were not available, but it looks like these revolvers will be available in early 2016.
