Here’s what Standard have to say about the .22LR chambered Switch-Gun:
Standard Manufacturing’s Switch-Gun .22WMR Folding Revolver has expanded into .22LR. The Switch-Gun is compact enough to fit into your pocket and occupies about the same space as a smart phone, though when open, features a large handle which provides a grip similar to a full-sized revolver yielding a high degree of control and accuracy. The Switch-Gun is built to be as compact as possible without sacrificing the most important aspects of a firearm, such as a comfortable grip, proper control, accuracy, and easy firing.
The Switch-Gun was designed with the safety and comfort of our users in mind. When in the folded position, the grip of the Switch-Gun completely encapsulates the trigger to prevent an accidental discharge. Upon depressing a button, the Switch-Gun immediately springs open as it is ready for the immediate and reliable discharge of five .22 Long Rifle cartridges. The Switch-Gun can help anyone make sure that they can always defend themselves. Having a gun that can be concealed in one’s pocket or fit easily into a drawer in your home can provide you with the proper protection wherever you may be.The Switch-Gun .22LR and .22WMR cylinders are interchangeable and the option to add a .22WMR cylinder to your Switch-Gun .22LR purchase is available. The Switch-Gun .22LR can be found for purchase at dealers nationwide along with Standard Manufacturing’s official website at stdgun.com. Standard Manufacturing’s team is also available if you have any questions or need help finding what you need. The MSRP of the Switch-Gun is $449.
