.22LR pistol - Impossible quest?
#1
My long-term goal is to have four .22LR revolvers (one for each member of my household). While I may eventually buy a fifth, my intention is to have revolvers that have interchangeable parts, so that after the purchase of the second, and beyond, there will always (hopefully) be at least one that is fully functional. These arms need need be completely identical as far as barrel length, coloring, or grips, but should be funtionally identical so that the cylinder, hammer, etc. could be interchanged if necessary.

Is this even a realistic goal, and if you think it is, do you have suggestions on what models to look into? Should I just break down and buy four identical pistols?

They make the Ruger LCR in .22LR now. Are you thinking something smaller like that, so it can be easily carried/concealed, or something larger like a Single Ten? Single or double action?

The Ruger single six models would probably work.

It doesn't have to be that small. I'm thinking for a potential extreme self-reliance scenario where each person would want defense and a way to take game if necessary. The LCR may be one option, but a longer barrel (IMO) would be more suited, and could still be somewhat concealable.

I definitely want something capable of double action. I have a Heritage Rough Rider that I LOVE, but it's SA only, so it's out of the running for this task.

I was going to mention the Heritage also! Great gun at a great price! But yeah, SAO is limiting and it's not a speedy reloader with the cylinder gate system.

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Ruger does the SP101 in .22. Looks a bit pricy, but I bet it's a sweet shooter. Double action. Taurus Model: 94SS4 looks like it would also fit the bill, but I'd check reviews. I haven't heard anything good or bad about them.

How about the Taurus 992? Comes with a 2nd cylinder to switch to .22WMR... comes in 6.5 and 4" barrels

I'm leaning toward the Ruger SP101 also. It's double action, swing-out cylinder, available in stainless and they're built like tanks.

And *this* is why the Ruger should at least be on the short list. Obviously you're considering disassembly at some point, beyond what's required for basic cleaning. Working on Ruger DA revolvers is a breeze, few tools are required. The trigger assembly drops out of the bottom as a separate assembly. No special jigs or fixtures required for fitting or assembly.
