I do know a .22 short will blow an Allen & Wheelock sidehammer revolver into three major pieces and a lot of little ones.
This post illustrates an important point... many antique top-break and tip-up revolvers really weren't safe to fire when they were brand new. IMHO firing one should not be attempted unless you get assurances that it is safe from an expert familiar with your specific type of gun.
