    You can buy a 22mag cylinder for it if that's what you mean

    I read this same question on the S&W Forum the other day.
    Here is an answer to that question.
    So if the revolver started out as a magnum, no problems, but not the other way round.


    "The bore of 22WMR and 22 rimfire are different. The former has a .224 bore, the later .222 In Ruger convertibles, the bore is .224 and they shoot better with WMR than rimfire cartridges. Older Ruger convertibles (before Stainless vintage late 70's early 80's) had a smaller bore and were much more accurate with rimfire ammunition. You can run into overpressure situations shooting a jacketed WMR round down a rimfire .222 sized barrel and blow out case rims."

    This one came with a magnum cylinder I had sold it because I never had a use for it
