The barrel should be 32-5/8", and the rifle should have a combination sliding bayonet/cleaning rod permanently mounted below the barrel.
About 66,000 were made thus - they are fairly common, but less so than the plain rifles using a loose socket bayonet.
It would be helpful to know the serial number, to confirm that the 1892 date matches. Should be somewhere around 540000, I'd guess.
