Single-Six 22 magnum cylinder fit question

Is there a chance that a .22 magnum cylinder from an Old Model 1969 3- screw Single-Six convertible revolver will fit and function in an Old Model 1972 3-screw Single-Six .22LR revolver? Both revolvers are unconverted if that matters at all.

Good chance.

Measure a cylinder that fits properly, overall length over the ratchets at the back to the gas ring in the front and try to get one the same length or a few thousandths longer so you can "fit" it.

You want three-place accuracy such as 1.618" or whatever yours measures.

And as I posted in your other thread . . .

There are cases where a cylinder will JUST BARELY squeek into the frame with the ratchets firmly against the recoil shield and the front face of the cylinder actually sliding against the rear end of the barrel so tight the cylinder cannot turn . . . and there's a considerable gap between the end of the cylinder gas ring and the frame.

No ready fix for this. Machining off the cylinder ratchets to allow it to turn may compromise the headspace and pawl engagement and it compounds the gas ring gap situation. Machining off the face of the cylinder to clear the barrel may do it but may or may not resolve the gas ring clearance situation . . . same situation with machining off the rear end of the barrel.

Ya just gotta see what you can come up with.

Part of the fun.
