Bought a short barrel Winchester 120 (PIC) Have Q's, Seeking A's

I went into a shop yesterday looking for a cheap 12 ga. pump for home defense. I don't really know much about shotguns but figured I should have one. I desired something cheap and short.

I found a little Winchester Ranger 120 and picked it up because it looked to be in great shape (not all beat to hell). Parkerized finish I think. I stuck a dowel down the barrel to measure it, 18-1/16" inches. I understand the ranger is a budget line model and that's just what I wanted.

Barrel says the following...

WINCHESTER Ranger Model 120 12 GA. 2 3/4 & 3"
MADE IN NEW HAVEN, CONN U.S.A. WINCHESTER PROOF STEEL
DEER SLUG

My questions...

1. Is this a factory length barrel?
2. Is this legal?
3. Anything I should know about this particular gun?
4. Did I do ok at $175?

Thanks!
