Wanted to get some insight on this. I have Walt’s book and realize that for the 16 gauge, the standard pre war barrel lengths were 26, 28, and 30 inches.

That said, has anyone seen or heard of a factory 24 inch bbl on a pre- war 16 gauge?

Reason for asking is that I am going to take a look at one and the owner believes it is un modified. I have seen a couple pics and it does have a bead that looks correct but the owner cannot measure the choke. When I see it I will measure the choke and that should tell the tale, I hope. Just wondering if anyone has ever seen a 24 inch barrel on one I am very cautious that it has been cut.

If it matters, it looks to be a late pre-war made in 43.

Thanks,

BB
