FIE (Titan) Buffalo scout (E15) model.

You shoot .22 lr in the .22lr cylinder and .22 mag in the .22mag cylinder.

That gun is beat to hell and that does not appear to be the original cylinder for the thing. These were not high end guns in the first place, and it's worth whatever someone will pay you for it, but I wouldn't expect that to go over a hundred bucks.

A properly made .22 Magnum cylinder will not allow the firing pin to reach the rim of a .22 LR shell. It will not fire.

A properly made .22 LR cylinder will not close/reinstall when loaded with .22 Magnum rounds.

The short answer is "no". So is the long answer, but with lots of technical reasons why trying it is a bad idea.
