    Someone gave me a SW mag22 revo which looks like this -

    Old school ang itsura but in very very good condition

    But I'm thinking of bringing it kay metrillo and gawin ganito -

    Nahihinayang nga lang ako , at all orig pa yung baril
    What do you guys think?

    And I've never even fired a 22mag before
    Nakakamatay ba sya ?

    S&W Mdl 51 yan kung blued or nickel, or the stainless version for which I forget the model no.

    Rare sa US yan, but for some reason marami dito. Keep it original nalang.

    Ganda yan. Pinned barrel and recessed chambers just like in the more desirable S&W revos. Bili ka nalang sa Twin Pines ng Pachmayr grip for a S&W square butt J-frame, solb ka na. Speedloaders are a challenge kasi walang pang S&W .22mag dito. Di naman pwede yung pang .22lr.

    It's more deadly than a .32acp, roars louder than a .38spl, and kicks just a little harder than a .22lr.

    The gun is in great condition
    I'm not a fan of modifications kaso mejo jologs ang dating kasi
    Bigay lang siya , so pwede ko pa gastusan to make it errr....cooler ?

    I bet metrillo can fabricate moonclips

    BTw, you can shoot 22lr thru it right?

    Actually there is. The HKS 51J which is the correct HKS model for the J-Frame S&W Model 51 (Model 651 for the stainless steel version). You can also use an HKS 48K which is for the K-Frame S&W Model 48 .22 Magnum

    I know this for a fact because I also had a Model 51 revolver which I gave to my sister. I bought the gun from a fellow BOG. I have 3 HKS 48K and 2 HKS 51J speedloaders. Both models work great for the S&W M51 although the HKS 48K is a bit big but works fine nonetheless.

    BTW I bought the HKS 48K from Tools Trading 4 years ago and the HKS 51J from Twin Pines just a year ago.

    I have one! Exact same model but in 22LR. Blued model sya, also in prestine condition. To bad I sold it to a friend who has a vast collection of Smiths. Nadala ako sa kulit eh.. IMHO, keep it na lang bro. Pagawan mo na lang moon clips like what I did... And yes, you can shoot it with 22LR & short if theres the need too... just my own two cents...:supergrin:

    Its up to you bro! Even me pabagu bago isip ko when i sold it. Had second thoughts.. But its a nice collection piece! And a good housegun. Well for a snubie, pwede mo carry.

    Ganito bro, I'll check if I still have the extra barrel for that model. Me spare ako original nun in nickel finish. Matagal na kasi could not remember where i kept it. If its still in my vault or naiwan ko sa friend kong gunsmith. Pagnakuha ko, bigay ko na lang sayo, then yun na lang i chop mo for a snubie, keep the original! Sayang eh.

    I'm not sure if moonclips would work on that gun. If that's indeed a mdl 51 the chambers in the cylinder should be recessed to take the cartridge case heads. No room for the moonclip na.

    I also wouldn't shoot .22lr out of any .22wmr gun. There is enough difference in the case dimensions to make a .22lr case a loose fit in a .22wmr chamber and therefore increase the risk of a ruptured case.

    Another thing I would NOT do with that gun is to get a light trigger job. I know that the stock trigger pull makes it almost mandatory, but remember that rimfires need a harder whack from the hammer for reliable ignition. Lightening the springs in line with a trigger job could lead to misfires. Ipa polish mo nalang yung action.

    Sayang din yan to convert into a snubbie because the shorter barrel will not maximize the benefits of using the magnum cartridge. It's not too bulky naman as it's a J-frame, and the slim 3.5in barrel is not that hard to conceal.

    That's a very nice gun.

    Not a good idea to fire a 22LR in a 22 WRM chamber.

    The 22 LR case will rupture or explode since the 22 WRM chamber is bigger than that of the 22LR.

    Not a safe proposition.

    You can try their dimensions by inserting a live 22LR bullet in a 22 WRM empty case.

    Ibenta ko na kaya ulit

    NOPE!!! iba diameter ng .22 magnum and .22 LR.

    Medyo mahal yung .22 Magnum - If I remember it correctly almost the same price of center fire ammo or a bit cheaper

    Remington JSP's were selling at P550 or so a box when I got them sometime ago. That's about P11 a pop. I wasn't able to check how much they were during the last gun show.

    .22wmr guns are inferior to .22lrs for plinking because of their higher ammo cost and much louder noise. Hindi ganon ka enjoyable.

    as far as i can remember the smith made 3 for me, could not show any pics coz its not with me anymore...

    In my experience I did shoot the same model mag22 rev with a .22LR & .22 short ammo. But never tried the .22wmr. It did fine, but not the accuracy though..

    This one i believe so...

    As for the conversion, i too would'nt do it. But every person has their preference... just my honest opinion... peace..:embarassed:

    Bro as promised, I searched for the barel since yesterday. Could not find it. My wife must have put it elsewhere but she could not remember where it was. Sorry bro, was hoping makuha ko. But I'm glad ung sa 38 model nakuha ko. Meron pa pala. At least I have it for safe keeping again.
