What is this 22 lr reamer called, who sells one?

I need a reamer to restore an Anschutz rifle chamber that was damaged by dry firing.
Now a round will not chamber.

Also what is the proper protrudement from bolt face for the firing pin.

Thanks,

What you want is one of these, unfortunately discontinued.

The idea is to form the metal back out rather than to cut it away.

A 5mm punch and a small hammer can do most of the work.
Insert the punch in the chamber and gently hammer on the side of the punch. That should take care of the bulk of the burr.
A small fine file and some polish paste can do the rest.
It isn't difficult to do...

Hope this helps

You might ask over on Rimfire Central. I'd bet someone over there has one.

It doesn't matter since you found a reamer, but I like RMCA's style.

I cleaned one up just using a small round Swiss file.

Will a file work if the barrel face is dented? It would remove any burrs in the chamber, but is it a problem if the face above is still dented?

Never had to deal with dry fire damage, so I'm interested to know.

To be honest, I just cleaned up the burr. There wasn't much other damage. It won't cost you anything to try it and take it from there.
