CHANGING .22 SHORT TO .22 LONG
CHANGING .22 SHORT TO .22 LONG—I have a Winchester rifle, Model 1890, using the 21 short cartridge only and would like to know whether I can get it changed so that it will handle the .22 long, and if so, what new parts will be needed, and where can I get them?
You cannot do this work yourself but the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. will make this change for you if you will send the rifle to them. The charge for this work will be $1.00, and you will have to pay the transportation charges. I understand that the only new part needed is a carrier, but the barrel will have to be removed and re-hammered. If the barrel is worn much it would hardly pay to have this change hassle, hut that is a matter for you to decide. The .22 long cartridges is somewhat better than the short, for lsusiting5 as the bullet has a higher velocity, and will kill game farther, but it is no more accurate than the .22 short, hardly as much so.
