Many of you were helpful a few weeks ago providing information about my Model 42. At the time I neglected to note (given my failure to appreciate) that its 26 inch barrel is CYL. Someone local advised me that this is a rare configuration. Could someone please confirm or deny as I am preparing to list this gun for sale.

Thanks in advance for any information.

Hello Larry,

Yes, a "CYL" bore Model 42 is quite uncommon. The vast majority of them were made with a "FULL" or "MOD" choked barrel. There were a fair number of them made with a "SKEET" choked barrel, but a factory "CYL" bore barrel is a very tough to find gun.
