      Well, here goes
      I have a K-22 converted to a 22 Harvey K-Chuck.
      I have lost luster over this revolver.
      So, Now I have a 4″ Model 15 barrel and a K frame 38 Special Cylinder.
      Should I yank off the old barrel and cylinder and fit the above stuff??

      You could do that. However, I’ll bet there’s quite a few people out there who would love to take that pistol off your hands as is! You might consider selling it and reinvesting the money in something more “lustrous”?

      Mike,
      Not that I could afford it but a K-22 does draw a following.

      Love me my K-22 6″

      But have to throw a monkey wrench into the works.
      Long ago and far away I knew a gentleman who had changed his S&W to 25 Hornet or have you thought of the 270 REN.


      Easy to cast .25 or .27 boolits and you already own the basic brass.

      Ackley’s Handbook for Shooters and Reloaders has the following on 25 Hornet – which at one point was popular in Contenders:

      60 gr bullet 8 gr 2400 powder 1525 ft/sec
      11 gr 2400 powder 2035 ft/sec

      86 gr bullet 6 gr 2400 powder 955 ft/sec
      10 gr 2400 powder 1675 ft/sec

      Standard Twist: 16″

      for 270 REN

      K-22 or model 17 is a rim fire frame. k-38 or model 15.is center fire frame. I was told long ago very hard to convert the two. is that true? 22 k-chuck is center fire? 22 k-chuck is in the 22 hornet family? thanks (tip of the moment soak your S&W barrel threads and barrel pin in kroil before attempted removal)

      My S&W K-22 was converted to CENTERFIRE 22 K-Chuck many years ago.
      Yes the K-Chuck is a shortened blown out 22 Hornet.
      The K-22 barrel, still used, is .221 or .222
