    That can shoot .22 LR/L/Short, and possibly magnum.
    Or, a .22 Magnum/ LR combo.
    Rifles only please.

    Any information on the Henry pump action Octagon in .22 Mag is also helpful. Thanks!

    Welcome to THR, Michiganhunter.

    There are no 22 S, L, & LR chambered rifles that will shoot 22 Magnum in the same chamber. There are dimensional differences that are designed to prevent that.

    Shooting 22 S, L, & LR in a 22 Magnum chamber, can be hazardous due to case splits and escaping gas particles.
    You'll need to choose one or the other or one of each.

    I don't know the exact dimensions, but I think the 22 mag chamber is larger than the 22lr or 22short, therefore rendering the interchangability of the 22lr and short impossible with the 22 mag. (Or its something along those lines) I'd google it. As stated above, the ruger is the only gun I know of that will shoot both with a cylinder change. Now... I believe its Sako that offers a rifle that has 4 interchanging barrels along with a scope with special turrets that allow you to shoot 22lr, 22mag, 17 hmr and 17mach2. But its in the 1500$ and up price range.

    While you can shoot 22 Short and 22 Long rifle with some rifle design (for example pump action or semi-auto with tubular magazines or bolt action as single shot with 22 Shorts), commonality between them and the 22 Magnum is out of question because the 22 Short and LR are heeled bullets cartridges while the 22 Magnum is a more modern crimped design (the case is slightly larger then the bullet caliber)

    So 22 LR/Short in a 22 Magnum firearm is a big NO-NO.

    The other option is to buy a single shot[easiest]rifle in a .22centerfire cartrige,and get inserts from the guy in Ak for 20.00.May not be as accurate,but it will work.Bore dia is same for .22mag,222,223,but .22lr is .223;[heeled bullet bumps up,just not match].
    If MONEY is no object,buy a Ruger single six w/.22/.22mag cylinders,have a 16in barrel installed with a Rifle stock like the old cap-n-ball remington.Should'nt be a violation to have 16in+ barrel with rifle stock,since it would be a registered handgun under federal law;just keep all parts to return to handgun,and never install pistol grip to 16in barrel.Option 2 have a 15 in barrel installed on single six as handgun,w/scope; still handgun.It's legal to brace handgun with unattached walking stick etc.
