Should a 22 caliber Smith and Wesson Double Nine revolver have 2 cylinders?
Smith & Wesson did not make the Double-Nine. High Standard did, and it was available with two cylinders. One was a .22LR cylinder the other was chambered in .22 Magnum. firstname.lastname@example.org
Depends on the revolver. Just flipped through one of my references, and it lists 13 different .32 revolver cartridges- not counting the obsolete .32 rimfires. While the most common is probably the .32 S&W, you are not holding your revolver close enough to the computer for me to identify the caliber. Have a gunsmith take a look at it- most of those 13 I mentioned do NOT interchange.
1. You will have to call S&W for a correct answer 2. Plus P means higher than normal pressure ammunition. "Other than 38 plus P" could mean another caliber, or normal pressure ammunition. The caliber should always match the revolver you are shooting. Normal pressure ammunition of the proper caliber can always be used in a firearm, unless the firearm is a machine gun which requires higher pressure ammunition to operate consistently.
No way we can answer your question without having examined the revolver. Gerstenberger and Eberwein produced an inexpensive line of small caliber handguns and blank guns. Importation to the US stopped with the 1968 Gun Control Act. These are not noted as being extremely high quality firearms. Yours should be examined by a competent gunsmith before firing.
we can't tell from the serial number- company is closed, records gone. These were made by the Iver Johnson Company as a line of "second quality" guns from ABOUT 1910-1930. Rarely in .22 LR, mst often in .32 S&W or .38 S&W (NOT .38 Special- .38 S&W) Caliber should be marked on the gunj, if not, very easy for a gunsmith to determine.
There are several .32 calibre and 8mm pistol cartridges for pistols. Some of the 8mm cartridges are sold as .32 calibre cartridges in markets where the English system is in use. Cartridges include: 8mm Nambu 8mm Roth-Steyr .32 S&W Long .320 Revolver .327 Federal Magnum 7.5mm Swiss Army Revolver 8x27R French Revolver 7.5mm Swedish Nagant These cartridges are NOT interchangeable with each other, at all, and it should not be attempted. If you remain uncertain…
I have one from a gun show a month ago, paid $40.00 but it was missing the paw that rotates the cylinder. Built a part easily and it works well now. I have seen them asking $125.00 but a good looking functional one should be had for about a $100.00 or less. One interesting thing about these little guys is that the cylinder rotates freely when it is not cocked. Larry
Can Iver Johnson 38 what types of 38 rounds will it fire it is now firing 38 s and w western rounds can it shoot anything else?
Sounds as if you have a caliber 38 S&W revolver, and should be able to shoot any brand of factory loaded .38 S&W cartridges, HOWEVER- some of these date back to the "black powder" era of firearms- 1890s and earlier. THOSE should not be fired with modern ammo. Since you did not give us any information on the dates or markings on your revolver, we can't make a good guess. We would suggest that you…
What does it mean if a 1992 Geo Storm misfires badly after it is warmed up like it's firing on only two of the four cylinders?
It could be misfiring on two of the cylinders... Try a compression test first. If compression is low between two adjacent cylinders it might be a head gasket. If compression is up across all cylinders, it might be a coil-pack. The cylinders that AREN'T running should be obvious, since you should see that the sparkplugs are darker, fouled and/or soaked.
Is a 50 caliber bullet measured differently than a 5.56 caliber bullet. if so how is the 50 larger than the 5.56?
They are most certainly measured differently. The "50" in 50 caliber is measuring in inches and should actually be referred in writing as ".50 Caliber." The "5.56" is in millimeters (mm) and should be written as "5.56mm". To compare the two: .50 Caliber = 1/2 inch = 12.7mm 5.56mm = ~ .2189 inch So the .50 caliber bullet is roughly 2.28 times wider than the 5.56mm caliber bullet.
The short answer is yes, as most revolvers are very reliable. A competent gunsmith should check out this and any firearm from this era, and if found to be safe, it should give good service. The 32 caliber is probably either S&W 32 long, not a very powerful catridge, but still available in most places ammunition is sold.
If your question is in regard to the Smith and Wesson Model 36 revolver, these were made in caliber .38 Special and that IS the ammunition to use in one. The 36-1 is an early model, and may not be suited to the use of +P or +P+ .38 Special ammunition, which is loaded to higher energy levels than standard ammunition. If you are seeking info on use of +P ammo in a specific S&W…
it is probably a 32 or 38 S&W caliber. go to a sports store and ask to try a 32 and /or 38S&W cartridge in your cylinder. Also, it might be a 22 cal ???? Just about any gun smith can tell the caliber just by looking at the cylinder. You should be aware that those old pieces do NOT hold up well with modern ammunition.........your pistol was probably made after 1900's...................
There are conversion cylinders out there, check midway usa and dixie gun works. they are maker and model specific The only no no is brass frame revolvers, they should not be converted due to the weakness of the frame. In a very short time the brass will distort enough to become very dangerous and in some cases have catastrophic failures.
