Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket, .22lr conversion?

Hello All,

Today I got started on the paperwork to buy a handgun here in MD, and I put a deposit down on a fairly nice Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket in .25 ACP. As the title says, and this is pure speculation, have any of you ever seen or heard of a .25 pistol being converted (permanently or temporarily) to .22lr? I do not intend to carry this pistol, mostly because MD does not formally recognize our right to self defense, so the historical value of the gun is the only consideration. For that reason I'd like something temporary like an cartridge conversion, 3rd party barrel and magazine combination, or similar.

I have a small lathe and milling adapter, so I'm half tempted to try making a new barrel out of a scrap Green Mountain blank in .22lr. Any advice at all for me? I tried searching Google and this forum and found absolutely nothing.

People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a civilized society.
