Hello Crcox and welcome to the forum
Although the 2" barrel was scarce, there were a few manufactured. However, after the war it was fairly common for the old Victory Models to get "Chopped" and I'll just bet it is more likely that you have a revolver that has been modified, than a very uncommon 2" model.
If you'll post some pictures and try to get a good photo showing the relationship of the front sight, the barrel printing and the frame, maybe we'll be able to distinguish if it's been modified.
You mention that it doesn't have a lanyard ring......does it have the hole for one?
How about proof stamps?
More info and pictures is necessary for us to assist you further.
