This is a discussion on Polytech Barrel Lengths within the The M14 forums, part of the M14 M1A Forum category; Were there any Polys imported into the US before the ban with 18.5" barrels? Or were they all standard 22" length barrels?...

I've seen a pile of them over the years and only 22". Interesting question.

I've been watching that one on Gunbroker for a while now. I sent a message about it cause it just a couple of serial numbers off one of mine. They replied it was original and showed no signs of rebarreling.

I don't believe it. Got to be a re-barrel or a mighty good job of shortening and cutting splines on a full length.

Thanks for the replies. I've never seen one either but wanted to check with others. Thought maybe they were rare and never came across one.

No..

Barrel length is measured from the bolt face to the end of the barrel,,,

"unless" the muzzle brake/flash suppressor is permanently attached to the end.[silver soldered] Like them AR's years ago with a 10" barrel with 6" brake making them a legal 16"
