.22 CALIBER RIFLE BARREL—Can you tell me where I can get a .22 caliber rifle barrel to use in a single barrel Stevens gun,.12 gauge, with a thirty inch choke bored barrel?
You cannot get a barrel made for that purpose, but if you have a good gunsmith nearby you can have him fit a barrel for you. A thirty inch barrel, .22 caliber, would cost $10.00 and would have to be turned down to fit. I would not advise you to get a full length barrel but one of sixteen or eighteen inches only. You can get such a barrel from the J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co., their Little Scout rifle barrel would do I think, and it costs only $1.50. If the diameter is great enough, and I think it is, any gun-smith can turn it down to fit your shotgun. If a notch is cut at the right place you can extract the empty shells with a hook made for the purpose, or an extractor can be fitted, either an independent one operated by a spring, or one made to be operated by the shotgun extractor is best, as the barrel will not have to be turned to a certain place each time to make it work right, and there will be no danger of pulling the barrel back, out of the chamber, in case a shell sticks, as is likely to happen if the extractor is operated by the shotgun extractor.
