You could buy a new .22 rifle for the price of the volquartsen conversion, plus the price of extra .22 short magazines for the conversion, you could get a scope.

The deal w/ shooting .22 shorts is that you must specifically clean the chamber as well as the barrel, not because its in the way of cleaning the barrel and just getting it by chance. Also most rifles designed to .22 LR will not chamber a .22 short from their magazine, some will but in others the lips on the magazine release the round before the tip is pointed into the chamber and it just jams there, requiring single loading, a pain in some tiny recievers under a scope.

But if you need to nail a raccoon on your bird feeder at 2 am w/ neighbors who live nearby but not in the direction of the bird feeder they work pretty well.
