I have recently acquired a very nice 1900 with damascus barrels and ejectors. It looks a bit odd to me in that the action sticks out approx .032"beyond the barrel OD all around. Ser. # is 3265** Numbers all match and it appears to be original.My first thought is that it was built as a 12 ga on a 10 ga frame. Is this a possibility. I have an 1894 that is flush with barrels. All other dimensions seem to be the same on the two actions. Were the 10 ga frames that similar?

It is normal for the barrels on a Model 1900 to be slightly smaller than the frame bolster. The reason for this isn't known, although it might be a cost-cutting feature. On the more expensive Model 1894s, the barrels are flush with the bolsters.

In any case, you don't have a set of 12 gauge barrels on a 10 gauge frame, the Model 1900 was not made in 10 gauge.
