Default .22 & .22 Mag Suggestions

I want a .22 rifle that is also a .22 magnum. Is the Rossi Circuit Judge my only option?

I have a lot of shorts, but also .22 mags I would like to be able to shoot.

No suggestions? Is the Rossi my only interchangeable answer in a rifle?

I know Thompson center has a single shot rifle with interchangeable barrels, so that could be another option but it's not a repeater.

Houston- we have a problem.....

.22 LR and .22 Magnum do not have the same exterior diameters. A chamber that will accept .22 magnum will cause a .22 LR case to split. .22 mag chamber- .243 22LR chamber-.224. The magnum also needs a slightly larger bore diameter (and uses jacketed bullets). Difference in diameter of the cartridge? .22 LR has a heel seated bullet- bullet and cartridge case- same size. .22 magnum, bullet loaded inside cartridge case- case must be larger in diameter.

There are REVOLVERS with multiple cylinders that do OK- and the Rossi is a revolver. The single shots, such as TC, you simply change chamber and barrel in one.

But as far as an auto, bolt, pump, or lever- no. The energies of a .22 mag are also much greater that .22 LR, and would generate problems in cycling an auto without changing to a heavier bolt, stiffer springs, etc.

This is not a .38 Special/ .357 Magnum situation, where power and case length are the only differences.

I think Rossi makes the wizard that has interchangeable barrels too. But didn't thing the circuit judge make a 22/22 mag
But defiantly some nice revolver options for both

Ok,, I looked a Rossi up for 22/22 mag.. It's kinda sweet looking and might be a decent option without having to swap barrels.. I own the Rossi rio grande leaver action and have been quite impressed with the way it shoots. Pretty nice gun,
