    .22 LR to .22 MAG Cylinder Change

    I got my Dad a Taurus .22 LR pistol for Christmas. We have been wanting one to plink around with. I was wondering if it is possible to get a hold of a .22 MAG cylinder that can be changed out. I looked at a Ruger that came with both in the box and thought it would be cool to have with this gun too.

    Thanks for your input!

    There are some guns out there that have that capability, but Taurus does not make them. Not sure who else besides Ruger, currently does, except for some SA cowboy type guns.

    Re: .22 LR to .22 MAG Cylinder Change

    Some of Heritage does at a great price but I think they are single action someone else that's sure of this will lets us know for sure soon but I think they can be found for around 200 bucks and a bit below sometimes with some a bit more with some very nice grips choices ( or I think so a laminate green I just love ) Not sure of others beside Ruger & Heritage though .

    I got mt son the Heritage for Christmas (silver with camo-lamo grips). It is single action only. You can get them for about $150 new with both cylinders

    Re: .22 LR to .22 MAG Cylinder Change

    I've never seen a DA revolver with interchangable cylinders. I don't know the differences between Taurus .22 and .22 magnums as far as specs go. The SA revolvers mentioned would be the way to go. Since they are designed for it, and would be easier to change, and less costly.

    Re: .22 LR to .22 MAG Cylinder Change

    I have an old H&R model 666 that is double action, and came with 22lr, and 22magnum cylinders. It is still like new, and in the box. You can get these cheap used ( they are 30 years old now), but I don't know if any newer revolvers have this caliber change capability.

    I bet that is a beast of a gun.

    No the Taurus .22 LR cylinders are 9 shot their .22 Magnums are 8 shot so it wouldn't work.

    Laker is right on. I've owned 3 Rugers over the years - - - a Single-Six in 22/22mag, and Blackhawks in 357/9mm and 45 LC/45 ACP. Easy to do, since you just pull out the spindle and pop in a cylinder.

    On a DA, you'd have the crane, and all the ejector hardware to fool around with.

    They really are super SA revolvers, though.
