I think your going to have to do more research or wait for someone here who has more knowledge. As I recall the convertables and magnums had a slightly larger bore. That would mean higher pressures for a standard .22 LR only gun on an alloy frame to shoot magnums.
They did make convertable scouts, but also made some that were .22LR only.

No facts but just opinion. I think a .22 mag cylinder would have to be professionally fitted to your existing frame although here's a comment from an old THR thread (2008)

Single caliber L series are rare. Most were shipped with the two cylinders. The only way to verify if one was shipped with a single cylinder or both is to have the original box or get the Colt historical letter. The letter may in fact not mention this, but you can hope.

The cylinders were each fitted to the gun and normally can not be simply "dropped in" although you might get lucky.

There's other good information about various models of Colt Scouts in the thread:


You might have trouble finding the cylinder. Google Colt Frontier Scout .22 Magnum cylinder. There's a lot of information out there, maybe even cylinders for sale.
