I can see the engineers talking this one over.

Engineer #1 "OK, so we get these little tiny cigarette paper liners made out of steel to put in the chambers and..."

Engineers #2-5 "Shut the Fu*k up, dimwit!"

You cannot shoot ammunition out of a gun that is not made for it. Even the .22LR versus the .22WMR, the chambers are different. You must change cylinders to safely shoot it. No gun manufacturer ever made a single cylinder with little knurled sleeves that you place into each chamber of a revolver- that is just ridiculous as the difference between the two is a mere .002", which means that the sleeve would have to have about a .001" wall thickness (I did not get out my calipers and measure, these dimensions are off the top of my head). A .22 LR will not fit inside a .22 magnum shell case either, the main dimensional difference is that the .22 WMR is longer by about a quarter inch. The WMR has a .224 bullet diameter and the LR has a .222 bullet diameter (which is why WMR will be inherently more accurate in a convertible gun- it has better engagement with the rifling).

Rossi made a prototype with little sleeve thingies? Bullspit.
I know the chambers are different and what I am talking about has nothing to do with the 12/20 burst of a shotgun. I was referencing a guy who I talked to a couple days ago who told me of shooting a 22lr through a mag rifle using a spent mag brass as a chamber bushing. I don't know if it would work and have never tried it and probably never will, just wondered if anyone had heard of that before. I don't know if the lr would fit in a fired mag or not, the mag brass supposedly directs the lr bullet into the rifling, notice I said "supposedly".

They do sell chamber bushings to shoot 22lr in a 22mag, so it isn't impossible I just don't know that it would work with a spent brass bushing.

http://mcace.com/adapters.htm This is one place that has the 22lr to mag adapter.
