Remington 32RF

I have the chance to pick up a Remington 32RF ( I believe it is a number 4) rolling block for a decent price. I've read about converting these to 22rf. How difficult/expensive is a conversion like this? I'm trying to decide if its a project worth jumping into or if I should pass.

Yes, it is different. It is for single shots and came out shortly before the Winchester version (which has a shorter length).

Winchester Lo Wall 25-20 SS

I recently aquired an original Winchester lo-wall in 25-20 SS. I have a couple of questions regarding this rifle. First, I notice the fire pin seems to float freely in the breech block. Is that correct or should it be under tension? (I am still aquiring dies and such to load for the rifle so I haven...
