Question Model 53 question

Back in May, I spied what I thought might be a 22 Jet spare cylinder on the big auction site, listed as a K-22 cylinder - it was marked with a serial number in that general range, anyway. Took a shot and bid on it, winning for ~$240, figuring that at most, I probably overpaid for an actual K-22 cylinder to have re-bored to 32-20 for my Model 16-4. It arrived, and because of pending family matters, got promptly thrown on the bench and buried/forgotten.

Fast forward to today, I uncovered it and compared it to both a Model 10 cylinder and a recessed 19 cylinder - it matches the 19, and measures @ 1.68, vs the 1.671 of the 19, so I think I bet right. The gas ring, however, is on the cylinder, and I can't currently access my Model 53; does the 22 Jet cylinder (449xxx range)have the gas ring on it, or is it on the yoke?
