Well North American Arms is now in production. Here is their September News release on the Sidewinder. Pictures to follow later this week. Excitement has turned into reality for this new revolver coming to Canada.
OK, here’s what I know (or at least what I’ve been told).
The production-grade knurled cylinder release pins are expected early this week. Not having them is what’s precluded us from presenting pictures of a completed piece. I will advise you later this week when/where to find these photos.
Otherwise, the first twenty pieces are finished. I believe Jessica will charge (some) credit cards on Thursday and we will ship these pieces next Mon. or Tues. (10/11). We will be spending the next week going over these pieces to assure ourselves – and you – that they work flawlessly and meet/exceed your expectations. Notwithstanding these efforts, we’re prepared for “glitches” and fully expect you’ll tell us – and the rest of the word – when you find one. We’ll repair and return them promptly. Early Bird Sidewinders come with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
In the meantime, we’ve made some minor tweaks to our investment casting tool and hope to receive the next batch of frames in a week or so. Assuming all goes well, we will complete another one or two batches of Sidewinders before the end of September and slowly ramp-up to greater production. I expect that we will complete deliveries of all Early Bird pieces before the end of October.

I love how NAA keeps us in the loop. It's cool to see how these things come together.

HELP! I sold my soul to the internet
Long Rifle. Fixed Sights. Can't decide on grips... but damn I want one of these now <sigh>
I'm on a .22lr binge at the moment.

The finish looks really nice.

WOW, that's great! Excellent pictures. The wood grips look really sharp. Great finish. I love the lines on this gun. The only thing left to do is, where do I line up to buy this puppy?
