Can't read serial number well but if it is 38696, cut from 30" to 26" according to book, grade 0. What is the number and do they look cut? Probably cylinder and cylinder; $500 +/-.

If that is the correct number the Parker Serialization book shows it left as a 30".

thanks a bunch for your time . so , evidently these bbl are shortened . i did read in the blue book (i think) that some of these guns were made with 26 " cyl/cyl bores,and there was a premium added to value .
