Default M1 Carbine 19 1/2 barrel

I am new and looking for information on a M1 Carbine. My barrel is 19 1/2 inches long... and made by Rockola. No one seems to know why the barrel is this long. The barrel is on a Quality Hardware receiver. The gun is in pretty good condition, just not sure what is going on with the barrel. Any one please!!!

Can you provide a picture showing the markings behind the front sight. Could you also lay a tape measure next to the barrel with the "hook end" at the muzzle and then stretched out to the rear.

The proper way to measure a barrel is to make sure the gun is not loaded, then fully close the bolt, then insert a cleaning rod in the muzzle until it comes to rest of the face of the closed bolt. Then put a piece of tape around the cleaning rod tight against the muzzle. Then remove the cleaning rod and measure it from the bottom of the tape to the rod's tip.

I measured using the cleaning rod. It is actually 19 5/16. I am not sure how to post pictures, but I can tell you that the only markings behind the front sight are, Rockola, and then back almost to the hand guard is the letter P.
