So here's the story,
When I was a child I was told that I was to inherit a gun from my grandfather. I was given the opportunity to look at it recently and discovered that it was a colt single action frontier scout. I do not have the gun currently, I am to receive it next year when I turn twenty-one. It's in .22 magnum and in good shape. Not that I mind the .22 magnum, I just wanted to see if I could shoot .22lr from it. I did some brief research and quickly discovered that I need a separate cylinder in order to shoot .22lr.
My question is, if I buy a .22lr cylinder for it can I just switch out the magnum cylinder? Will the diameter of the barrel (because it is supposed to be .22 magnum) cause any safety or accuracy issues?
There was another post on this website, but I wasn't sure if it applied to my case:
Thank you for any help, and I apologize if this is a repeat post.
