Can you install the bolt assembly from a 22 short Winchester Model 74 semi-automatic in a 22 LR that is otherwise identical and shoot 22 shorts in it?

It is possible, but you will loose all consistency and accuracy and it is potentiallty unsafe. I would recommend either trading in long rifle for a short missing the assy or trying to get a matching long assy bolt.
