This barrel measures 7-1/2" long & is .22 caliber and says Christy on the bottom of it. Does anyone have any idea what it's for? Thanks

    An on-line search looks like most of them are for Colt SAA's.

    Christy made a whole line of barrels and cylinders for Colt SAA. The question about this one is it .22 Rimfire or .22 Centerfire? Because they made cylinders for .22 Hornet and .218 Bee.

    Christy barrels and cylinders for .357 Magnum are still pretty common, they made a lot of them when a used SAA was cheap and a Smith & Wesson .357 or Colt New Service was expensive.
