I recently picked up a Micro Might
mini revolver and I gotta tell ya, it's a whole lot of fun to shoot.
Purchased in tandem with my need for strange or uncommon firearms
, I have to be
honest, I truly didn't think this would end up being a worth while purchase. I thought the weapon, even in .22LR would be uncontrollable due to its
As it turns out, the weapon is reliable, very controllable, and surprisingly accurate. I thought for certain that I wouldn't be able to get more than
a few feet of accuracy. But I was able to group with it just fine at 15 meters. Not
, but a decent 5 inch group at that distance with a 1 1/8" barrel is pretty
My MM Revolver is a 5 round single action
revolver in .22LR. Micro Might
Revolvers also makes them in .22 Magnum, and .22 LR/.22 Mag combo. They retail for about $200 bucks but I got lucky with mine, since the dealer didn't
know what he had, and scored it for $40 dollars. I've put a whole brick of .22LR through mine without a single malfunction. The .22LR version will
safely fire .22 LR, .22 Long(Not entirely the same as LR), and .22 Short.
How is this different from North American Arms mini revolvers?
It has a manual cross-bolt, hammer block safety. This is uncommon for single action revolvers as they typically have either a half-cocked safety
feature or hammer rest notches on the cylinder so the hammer isn't sitting on the primer of the round. It is also considerably cheaper than NAA
revolvers by at least $100 bucks. I've found them online for about $150 and below.
Takedown and Reloading:
The process for takedown and reloading is the same. The the tip of the cylinder pin has a button that releases tension on a spring loaded pawl that
rests in a detent on the underside of the barrel. Remove the cylinder, clean or load as necessary, and replace. It's that simple.
Overall impression is very good. It does what it is advertised to be able to do, and doesn't seem to mind running dirty either. With a revolver this
small do not be surprised if your hand is covered in powder residue. While I did not experience hot powder or gas burns at all, your hands will get
pretty well coated after 50 rounds. Washing your hands is highly recommended after firing this weapon.
Self defense? Yes, absolutely. It would make an excellent "in a pinch", back up, or "get off me" gun.
Plinking and target shooting? Absolutely. You won't be disappointed firing this little guy at all. I was actually impressed with how much fun it was
Hunting? No. Unless you load it with .22 snakeshot to kill a snake in your tent this thing will not be effective for hunting. Conceivably you can use
this weapon on squirrels and rabbits, but you'd likely have a hard time doing so and there are far better .22LR platforms out there to do that with.
As always, Happy Shooting!
