Didn't they make a marlin model 120 with a 40 inch vent rib barrel. Had someone tell me they didn't, but I have only seen two on gunbroker for sale. They said the rib was added on. Not factory.

According to the Brophy book, the 40 inch barrel did not have the vent rib. Some of the other barrels did have a rib, but not the longer, 40 inch long barrel.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there be no warning shot!

The growing federal deficit = generational slavery to the national debt.

I guess the two I saw had the vent rib added on later. Thanks
