The barrel length measurement includes the part of the barrel threaded into the receiver.
If the factory letter does not mention barrel length on a Sporting Rifle, by default it is a standard length 24” M92 barrel. The only time barrel length was entered in the factory ledgers is when it was special order, non standard length.
The muzzle on a Sporting Rifle should be in the white with a slight chamfer around the bore entrance.
Another method used to determine is a barrel has been shortened is to measure the distance from the middle of the front sight dovetail to the muzzle face. Offhand, not sure what this measurement is.

I'm glad that you got your letter from Cody! The reason that it states octagon barrel with no length, is because its a standard 24 inch long Barrel, and there was no need to indicate the length unless it was something special, whether it be longer or shorter! When measuring the Barrel, go from the end of the threads, in the receiver to the end of the muzzle! Should measure 24 inches. I could be wrong, but as memory serves me, from the end of the Barrel to the center of the front sight dovetail, it should measure 15/16 of an inch!

Thanks for the further explanation. The rifle is up north and I'll bring it back next time I'm up there to do some measuring.
