    pietro replied to a thread Chiapas 22 levergun in Leverguns
    . The Chiappa LA322 does not have a case-hardened/colored steel receiver - the receiver made of a cast non-ferrous alloy that has chemically-applied case colors. While it is a takedown similar to the discontinued Marlin 39a, unlike the Matlin,...

    . FWIW, I've never heard of a concern for the strength of a .22RF barrel, only weight or fitment, unless someone re-chambered a RF barrel to a CF round - but in those cases the the concern was about the action strength, not the barrel strength. ...

    . FWIW - The .32 S&W Long would not chamber in my #4 RB's .32RF chamber, whereas the .32 Short Colt readily chambered, w/o re-chambering. (why I used the Short Colt). I would suggest that folks considering a .32RF to a .32 CF first try the...

    . When I converted my solid frame .32RF Remington #4 rolling block to CF (E-Z-Peazy), I found that the commercial .32 Short Colt (Winchester makes a couple of runs a year of them) fit the RF chamber readily, working out best, both as ready-made...

    Tex, with all due respect, you're wasting your time. ;) Since ALL Charter revolvers have had the same round butt gripframe since day one, you can buy ANY .38 snubbie (model 85 ?) and then swap in a set of small grips - many of which are available...

    . I like Charter's.......... Except for an early .44BD I bought in the 1970's, I've had excellent service from them - and find them more comfortable to shoot than a J-frame S&W (even my Y2K .44 stainless BD). .

    Whatever you do, take care to determine WHICH type receiver you want to place the stubbed barrel on, as there are two invisibly different types - the cast iron SB-1 (NO, NO, NO, NO ! ) or the forged steel SB-2. The factory SB-1 is only suitable...
