I too would be interested in .22 mag cylinder performance.

Been wanting one of these but always read mixed reviews on the accuracy of the gun with the .22 mags.


definitley a lot out there on the web "poo pooing" the accuracy of single sixes.

glad yours shoots!

Best squirrel hunting ammo that I have used is Remington or Winchester std. velocity target ammo. Unplated lead for a quick clean kill that does not tear up the animal.

I've read the same thing in regards to these guns BBwheelgunner, especially when using the .22 mag cylinder.

Most of the writers state that the only way to achieve accuracy is to buy a gun chambered for the .22 mag. Difference in bullet diameter I guess. Kind of defeats the purpose of the convertible if that's the case.

Deboned and fried is my favorite. Makes for excellent gravy. Also do a lot with my crock pot.

I think I've used most every kind of 22 and 17 ammo there is. I have a Browning SA 22 short and it kills them just as good. Its my favorite long gun for tree rats.

I haven't done a lot of testing with the 22 mag cylinder yet. I don't have any other 22 mags, so not much ammo on hand.

But so far it's been accurate, just not as accurate. After things settle down I will try to get an assortment of mag ammo and test it out.
