Yes , a 30 " octagon barrel it is a special order....they did make a Winchester 1873 musket version with a 30 " round barrel but it sounds like you have a special order sporting rifle ( that normally came with 24" barrel ) and carbine version came with a 20" barrel ! The 38-40 was first offered in 1879 for the model 1873.......38 CAL mark is the 38-40 !
