Taurus has a new Tracker Model 992 that comes with both cylinders and switches them easily. Push a button, and the whole crane, ejector, and cylinder comes free.

Me too. The 22lr cylinder allows for much cheaper target shooting, plinking. Cylinders can be switched in a matter of minutes. The only drawback is it's a six-shooter, takes a while to load/reload.

Go for either of the .22 RF Rugers with an extra .22 Mag Cylinder. Quality & a good price.

The Mdl. 48 S&W is the legend in .22 Mag. DA handguns. For hunting edible game I use the .22 WRF which is the correct diameter for a Mag barrel. The .22 WRF is also .224. and runs at around Long rifle speeds. I have not found the .22 long rifle that good when fired in the larger .22 Mag bore.

I don't mean to screw w the vibe but you if you want a 22 Mag gun primarily that can also shoot 22 LR then all is well. However, if your looking for a 22 LR and accuracy is important, keep on walking. The guns are bored .224 for the larger round and this is does not promote accuracy in 22 LR.

No one told me about the above when I bought my Ruger SS in the 70s. Built like a tank, most Ruger revolvers are but all tools have their strengths and weaknesses.

Large frame revolvers are heavy and this weight is recoil friendly. Try 38s in a 357 and see how that works for you but 22 Mag is only $11 for 50 and occupies its own place. In a 6.5" barrel, it has same velocity as 22 LR in a rifle. 22 mag is under appreciated IMHO - 42% one shot stops - not bad for 40 gr.
