Short rifle question

(1/1)

Galloway:
Just wondering if the short rifle term is a modern thing of if winchester ever advertised or sold them as such outside of a custom order. I mean a 20'' octagon cc rifle forearm sans barrel band. Thanks

Abilene:
I don't know.  But I am going to guess that they didn't actually use the term "short".  You could order any length barrel you wanted, though.  Similarly, I wonder if they ever used the term "trapper" for the shorter carbines?  Seems like I might have seen that term used somewhere other than modern times, but not sure.
