I have a new to me 1953 model 922 9 shot .22 caliber revolver that cartridges won't fully seat to the cylinder easily. Using new winchester 22lr and each chamber will only accept the cartridge about 2/3 before it becomes tight. Cleaned and inspected with the naked eye and see no reason. Any ideas?

It would have to be the ammo, Try a newer box, or try a different weapon. (.223)
Good Luck

I did run them through the 10/22 with no issue, all research I've found shows it takes the long rifle. The cylinder has plenty of length for it. I'm wanting to check it under magnification like a jewelers loop and then maybe test with drill blank. I don't know what else

10 22 auto loader, you might not notice if the lead was swollen up a little. Try loading the 10 22 by hand. ????
I had a single shot 22 that all of a sudden the bullets were hard to insert in the chamber by hand but went in fine using the bolt. That's why I say it has to be the ammo unless the cylinder was made wrong.(highly unlikely)

It looks to be original cylinder, all the blueing fade matches. Trying to find the chamber inside diameter specs and mic the chamber at different depths for inconsistencies. I'm trying not to spend the value of the pistol at gunsmith.

Also grabbed different rounds in the box and tried applying a little pressure then checked the brass for marring. I need a better magnifying glass.

Larry, Measure the OD of the lead part of the ammo. (.223) Just checked copper coated new 22 LR projectile. That is all I got for you on this. :)

I own one of these little revolvers and never had any problems when it came to getting ammunition to chamber.

Try inserting other ammunition. If that fails, see if you can arrange for a gunsmith to use extremely fine jeweler's rouge on a bore mop inside of the chambers to remove any imperfections.

That's all I would venture to guess/advise.

Guess #3; When you cleaned it, what did you use? Will an empty shell chamber in the cylinder? If not, did you try bore cleaner and a wire bore brush? I'm thinking it was put away for a long time dirty and the end of the cylinder bores have a little corrosion. What shape is the barrel in?

It had been sitting a long time and I used bore cleaner and brass brushed then cleaned and oiled. The barrel is clean, the cylinder looks clean and minimal grime on the patches. I had someone look at it today and they thought the same thing. It's an inexpensive gun that may have a ridge of crud and the tolerances may be off.

We brass brushed the cap out it and worked rounds in and out. It will accept a full seated round without forcing and he seemed to think another type of ammunition would also be easier. I appreciate the help and enjoy talking guns with you.

I KNEW somehow it had to be something of that nature. Glad to hear your problem has been resolved.
