    Mausers were made in many parts of the world for many different countries. Yours is Chinese.

    Pictures always help.
    Not all .44s are the same caliber.
    If someone has center punched the cylinders, you may have additional issues.
    Proceed with caution.
    Take lots of measurements.

    You are correct- from a ballistician's point of view.
    But the ballistician takes a back seat to others in many cases.

    The machinist/manufacturer may just want to know what length of barrel to...

    Check into rehab.

    Sorry Benjamin, now you know what we have to deal with.

    I believe I have found the source of my confusion.

    There are two parties interested in barrel length.
    The manufacturers and consumers in one camp and the regulators in another.

    I was...

    1) What makes you think it doesn't.
    2) Why should it be?
    3) "The bullet doesn't start from the breech face." has no bearing on the topic.

    There are times when a .22 has a worn out barrel.
    This can be repaired by running a drill down the length of the worn barrel and inserting a new liner.
    It is possible to use this type of liner as...

    If Benjamin buys another, it needn't be in 12 gauge.

    Possibly. But if you started with a .410, it would be light to begin with.
    One could make the sub-caliber insert, by casting a .22 barrel liner inside an aluminum cylinder.

    I've been gunsmithing part time for about 50 years.
    My experience with used firearms has been very good. Especially the inexpensive plain type. They are usually so basic there is little to go...

    True about built in slop increasing dependability. If you were hunting with a .22 hornet, you might survive a malfunction, maybe not if your .300 H&H jams.

    Maybe you could jig up the rifle, take...

    Generally speaking, your ideas are not necessarily wise from an economic point of view.
    Good .22 projects can be had for less than $100.
    That said, I have frequently embarked on gunsmithing...

    As long as you don't see fit to help us help you, I will offer the following conjecture.

    I may not be the most experienced in this field, but I would like to learn more.
    Can you tell me what kind of receiver you have? Springfield, Enfield, Mauser etc.

    I didn't mean to imply that the shooter would adjust the powder charge.
    The companies that load target ammo (Eley etc.) can load to suit the needs of the shooter. Just as they do for other target...

    I'm not sure I understand, but isn't "rim thickness" for a .22 LR just a headspace issue?

    That is not my understanding.
    To relieve pressure, reduce the gunpowder or change type.

    The ports on the barrel are to re-direct the recoil from an upward flip of the barrel to a more direct...

    Exactly. And thank you.
    I'll set 'em up, you knock 'em down.

    Well then how would you interpret the opening clause of the 2d Amendment?

    When I wish to understand law, I find it useful to research the language and definitions of the time.

    To that extent I believe that the phrase, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the...
