Ruger 357 flat top 12'

I don't mean to sound totally ignorant, however did Ruger ever make the 357 flat top in a 12 " barrel version ?

I've never heard of one,but like Grandpa said "
never say never" ( special order???)
a call or a letter request from the factory will tell you what that serial numbered gun shipped as........over the years folks have put longer barrels on more guns than I can even think of.....when we had our shops we did lots of custom work and yes put some cutdown rifle barrels on revolvers ,mostly 22 caliber stuff, and did a few DWA revolvers in 256 Win back in the mid 70s....
do you have any pictures?? especially of the barrels roll markings ,if any....

There were two 15" guns made at the factory, I believe they were .44's, one still in existence, the other was cut back to 10" The also made, seen the pics of it, it is still in the factory, of a Hawkeye carbine, .256, with Ruger you never say never, but trying to get authentication from the factory can sometimes be a bear.
