Camfour Offers an Exclusive New NAA Pug with “The Duke”

0 79

When it comes to pocket pistols, NAA (North American Arms) models, like the Pug (below), have long been a staple. Chambered in .22 WMR, the Pug easily hides away anywhere on your person. For this reason, Camfour released an exclusive model with its “The Duke.”

The Camfour Exclusive NAA (North American Arms) Pug – “The Duke”

Marking an immediately recognizable departure from the standard Pug lineup, The Duke features a black frame, trigger, hammer, and barrel. The 1-inch slab-side barrel reduces weight and enhances the overall aesthetic. Likewise, a series of grooves runs along the top to help reduce glare when using the XS Sights White Dot sights.

In place of the standard slip-on rubber pebble grip, The Duke features pearl grip panels for a classic aesthetic. Running along the backstrap is engraving signifying the model name, “The Duke,” in bold white, Western-style lettering. As with all North American Arms pocket revolvers, The Duke keeps a small profile by foregoing a trigger guard.

Chambered in .22 WMR, the 5-round stainless bull barrel contrasts beautifully against the black frame. In addition, the exclusive Pug model includes a .22 LR conversion barrel for a more enjoyable plinking experience. Although there isn’t a trigger guard, there are notches between rounds in the chamber to rest the hammer down, making it safe.

In a world gone double-stack striker-fired, carry optics and more, sometimes its good to take a step back. Take in the simpler ways to accomplish a goal. In the world of concealed carry pistols, the NAA Pug fills a unique niche.

Shooting the NAA Pug

We recently got some much-needed time reacquainting ourselves with North American Arms and its unique array of self-defense guns. At the 2020 Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous we put some rounds downrange, again reaffirming the Pug’s rightful place as a viable defensive option.

When it comes to concealability, these guns arguably stand unrivaled. The Pug serves as a five-shot, single-action revolver. It weighs around 6.5 ounces unloaded. Its 1-inch barrel fires either .22 Magnum or .22 LR, depending on the cylinder installed. The interchangeability delivers a cool practice/carry combo.

“We make a lot of mini-revolvers. So, this one is really popular,” said Sadie Sweat, North American Arms. “It’s got a .22 Magnum cylinder in it, with the option of a .22 LR cylinder as well.”

Using the guns, you pull down a spring-loaded mechanism, then pull out the cylinder pin. Place the revolver in half-cock, allowing the cylinder to rotate out, facilitating loading/unloading of the pistol.

These guns come with this really slick cobble rubber grip. And that’s really nice, just for the size of our gun, it gives you something really nice to hold onto when you’re shooting it.

The NAA Pug looks like something straight out of the late 1800s, and in some ways it is. But for those worrying about the safety aspect, NAA has got you covered with modern upgrades.

“There’s notches between the rounds,” Sweat said. “So to use our safety you’d rest the hammer down in these notches instead of on a round, so it makes it safe to carry as well.”

The NAA Pug, with both .22 Magnum and .22 LR cylinders, retails for $380. For even more information, please visit northamericanarms.com.
