Is anyone making a double action, .22LR/.22WMR convertible revolver nowadays?

Hi. I'm just looking for something like the old H&R 676s, but new. Thanks.

You can still get the NAA Mini with two cylinders! I've been wanting one of those little ones with the four inch barrel, adjustable sights, and two cylinders.

Here around the property, I'm sure I could find a job or two for it.

The trouble with a double action convertable is that it usually involves more than just a cylinder change. When S&W had their convertable, it involved a complete cylinder and yoke. Other wise you would have to break down the cylinder every time you wanted to change calibers. Not very convenient and of course the cost a major part like the cylinder and yoke didn't help. It's not as simple as changing the cylinder in a single action. Would you really pay a hundred more for a convertible 22 revolver, most people didn't. ( Today the cost would probably be 200 to 250 more )

'Cause .22's are fun! Especially in small packages. I'd love to have one of those Taurus model 94's. But I can't decide between long rifle or magnum.

I love shooting .22LR's but I don't see the need for a .22LR/.22WMR convertible revolver. If you want to plink the .22LR is the better choice and if you want to hunt there are much better rounds than the .22WMR.

If you want to plink, go with the .22 LR because of the cost of ammo and availability of more brands and types.

You would probably be better off looking for a used H&R or High Standard, if it's a DA .22LR/.22Mag convertible that you're after.

The .22Mag is an excellent small game and predator round! I'm still kicking myself for trading away a fine first-run S&W 648 in a moment of stupidity.
