Quick question. Looking at a post war Model 36. Barrel is marked as an A (24 inch rifle model), but it is configured as 20 inch barrel, with 3/4 length barrel and fore end cap (a 36SC?). It is probably an A cut down by a smith, if so the work is high grade. I do know that Marlin put ADL barrels on As and vice versa. Does anybody know if Marlin ever miss- stamp a 20 inch barrels as an A model, or factory shorten A barrels ? Cuz if this is original and uncut it would be good for the collection.
