Stevens 311A SXS Combo 410/25-20?

I recently acquired a Stevens 311A SXS with the right barrel being a 410 gauge shotgun and the right barrel being a 25-20 rifle barrel. I have scoured the Internet looking for information on this model but have found no reference. There is no serial number but it does have the marking under the hinge and marking on the watertable. I have seen the sites instructing how to interpret these markings but have not researched the manufacture date. The Monte Carlo walnut stock and fore end are highly grained. Do I have a custom built gun or was this a standard production model?

Check the end of the barrels for a liner. Chances are someone had a custom gun built and the gunsmith installed a rifle liner in one of the barrels.

What's the left barrel?

Sorry for the confusion. Left barrel is 410 and right is marked 25-20. I will check out the barrel end for a liner. I will also try to post some photos.

The 25-20 barrel is definitely not sleeved. I have photos but I need to learn how to post them. Possibly this was a prototype gun that never made it to production. I think it is unlikely that a gun enthusiast would have spent the amount of money required to create this gun from a standard 311A 410 SxS. I need to do more research on the manufacture date and the factory markings on the gun. Thanks for the responses. I will post anything that I find.
