I have an early (1902) Winchester 1897 riot gun. I see the barrel length listed at 20" although I see other references to the barrel as 21 1/2". Measured to the face of the bolt using a rod what should be the barrel length?

The gov. measures barrels from the muzzle to the breech face. Measuring from the front of a loaded round will give you the bore length but not the barrel length. Also, all Win 97's are not takedown.
