    I only know of single action .22 revolvers. Maybe someone will come along who can give you more information.

    Bigcountry74,
    YES!
    All the H&R convertibles are double action .
    All well built and all mine are very good shooters also!
    Watch the auctions, and you can still find them in excellent condition, still reasonably priced, but the values have been rising steadily!

    The only one that comes to mind with both cylinders and double action is the Charter Arms Pathfinder,there is a version of that double action revolver with both a .22LR and .22Mag cylinder but it runs about $100 more than the standard .22LR only version.You're looking at about $400 new for the .22LR/.22Mag convertible.

    If you want a true western style, you'll want to look at a single action.

    Your preference for double action runs a bit contrary to the "western style" preference. Aside from the previously mentioned H&Rs you may have to adjust one of your options. If single action is a realistic option, Ruger Single Six with no hesitation.

    Forgot about the High Standards.
    Also good revolvers.
    i have a pretty scarce model the High Sierra,fully adjustable sights, 7" octagonal barrel.
    Also a double action.
    Very nice shooter, also is a 9 shooter, while the H&R's are only 6 shooters.
    Also while it does have the western look, it is a swing out cylinder.
    The H&R's have the western style ejection system.

    What are you going to be using the revolver for? If it is mainly going to be for shooting at the range, plinking and hunting, the double action feature isn't really gaining you anything as shooting a revolver double action makes for a long trigger pull and it is harder to keep on target that way, I almost always cock my double action before shooting to attain the best accuracy, now if you are planning on carrying it for self defense, which a larger 22 revolver won't be so easy to conceal, then the double action makes sense because you may not have time to cock the hammer before the bad guy can get at you. My preference in these guns lies with the Ruger single six, single ten (though they are LR only, and I don't like the fiberoptic sights), or the little bearcat(also long rifle and no adjustable sights) however all 3 of these are single action. One issue I have with the convertible revolvers is that everyone I have ever fired seems to like the Magnum round much better than the long rifle accuracy wise, I don't like to shoot the Magnums as they are expensive and loud as hell out of a revolver. If you shoot mags be sure to have ear protection because you WILL damage your hearing with them.
