Having found an orphaned 32" barrel for her courtesy of a member here which pretty well buckled up to her that's the one I've been shooting her with, though in truth she did quite well with the shorty. I have noticed that though her short barrel carries all the proper stampings and the numbers match throughout, the font used to stamp the barrel is different than used on the rest of the gun; in fact it's very much like the font used on the orphaned barrel, some 5,000 #'s newer. I think it's very possible that Dick had the short barrel made for the gun at Parker, but no way to prove it that I know of. And if that's the case, I wonder what happened to her original barrel; maybe it's kicking around somewhere !
