I do know that many years ago S&W discontinued the magnum J frames because the .22 mag round caused flame cutting on the top strap. Later, some of their .22 mag revolvers had a metal shield to prevent gas cutting. I have had personal experience with five J frame .22 rimfires but admit to being out of date in the sense that I have not owned a current model. After I wrote the post above, I looked back to determine a reference for my opinion and found an American Rifleman article on the subject of the J frame snubs and the .22 Magnum. I have fired at least 75,000 rounds of .22 l.r. ammo through revolvers: High Standard, S&W, H&R, and Ruger. I became accustomed to occasional misfires. I accepted them as the nature of the beast. I noticed variations from lot to lot. Yes. I received my ammo in lots. I suggest that the person depending on a rimfire for self defense identify at least one lot that shows reliability in his weapon and retain it.
    CCI Stingers and CCI MaxiMags are a good starting point for .22 LR and .22 Mag respectively.

    $45 for estimate and range test, $45 for 1/2 hour of PC labor, $13 for return shipping.

    Guess I should’ve changed those back before shipping it.

    I do wonder what springs it will return with.
    Finally got the only person you can pay on the phone. She said I can expect it back in 4-6 weeks.

    I hope it works.
