Well, 1.57" would explain it. Seller states it's a 7 & 1/2" barrel.
Also looking at the pics..... The relationship of the roll marks compared to the ejector rod latch do not match my 2 K-22's from 1948 (same year as the one in question).

I couldn't tell a factory crown if it smacked me. Still a young pup in this game.

I have my doubts to the authenticity of this barrel. Had it from the first time I read the ad. But..... I have learned (from this forum), when it comes to S&W, never say never.

I appreciate your time folks.
