Nice catch. Not that it matters if you're happy with it, but it may have started life as a 6 1/2".

Notice the sight base solder seam and barrel discoloration on the right side of the front sight. Not a an area where the blue wears off. More likely from resoldering the front sight back on after cutting the barrel. Then touched up with cold blue.

I don't think so, to early for a 61/2" per the S/N I think this is a type 2A BKH-34
Anyway a nice old shooter
