I was looking at lengths of a Mountain Howitzer barrels and they said different lengths. 33” and 38”.
Can someone tell me the length of a mountain howitzer barrel without the knob? Thanks in advance

These two sources say 32.91 (knob adds another 4.3 in.):

Hazlett, James C., Olmstead, Edwin, and M. Hume Parks (2004). Field Artillery Weapons of the Civil War (U. of Illinois Press)

Coggins, Jack (1990). Arms and Equipment of the Civil War (Dover Publications, Mineola, New York)
