Which Speed Loader Do I Need?

Ordering the correct Speed Loader for your NAA shouldn't be a "Big Deal" but... to function right it needs to be the correct size and type

OK, to start, NAA Revolvers have only 2 cylinder diameters so that helps narrow the choices 50% 

The "Magnum" Frame Speed Loaders

 NAA "Magnum" Frame Revolvers use the DS-530 Speed Loaders and are available with BOTH Cylinders. The cylinders for these guns are the same length and diameter. The difference is in the base of the .22 rounds themselves. The base of the .22lr is smaller than the base of the .22 Magnum.

 So the DS-530-Mag & the DS-530-LR are made to accommodate the different size base of the shell and keep the shells in the wider configuration to fit the cylinder diameter of the Large Frame NAA Revolvers 

(The base of the .22 Short, .22 Long, and .22 Long Rifle shells are all the same size)

The Small Frame Speed Loader

 The NAA "Short" and the NAA "Long Rifle" both use the smaller DS-484 that handle the smaller diameter base of the .22 Short and .22 Long Rifle cylinders.

 The "Short" is only available in one barrel length but the "Long Rifle" is available in 1 1/8" & 1 5/8" barrel lengths.

I hope this helps clear up the differences of the Speed Loaders available for the NAA Mini Revolvers!
