Default .22 M&P (Model 45 or Post Office Model) Question

Does anyone know of a .22 Military & Police / Model 45 with a heavy barrel? I noticed a reference to a "Military & Police .22 Heavy Barrel (Post Office Model) Model 45" on page 138 of the SCSW 4th ed (Collectors Tip). I've searched this site high and low for a reference or photo of a .22 M&P or Model 45 which has a heavy barrel instead of the standard "pencil" barrel with no luck. Is this a typo or does such an variant exist?

I was lucky and stumbled across a 45-2 at a small shop in northern New England back in 1992 and bought it for less than $400. No box or papers but money well spent. It created an interest in this model which still exists today.

Thanks in advance.

I believe it is an incorrect statement.

All of the .22 M&P's I have encountered have the tapered barrels. Four and six inch alike.

Now, that covers 'all' that I have encountered.

Thanks! That's what I thought but you never know what the factory might have turned out when they had some barrel blanks kicking around.
