This may have already been answered, so I will add another twist to this.....
The receiver section (connected to the barrel which reads 22 wrf) may have been connected to a trigger section (found by the indication of "mismatched" serial #'s) that is a 22s, 22L, or 22LR . This may be the reason the 22wrf is not feeding correctly or causing the operator to think there is a proble.....There may be no probem other than the swapped sections. This is a common situation with the 1890's in many cases. Use the correct round that works in the carrier and you have the situation figured out.
