How common are they , if they exit..., I was told colt had left over viper barrels.... and some put them on police positive?
Is this true?

Probably so even though the Police Positive Special is steel framed rather than aluminum. Numrich used to have a bunch of Viper barrels so it's likely there are counterfeits out there.

If someone was very careful the barrels could have been installed on a Cobra or Agent and be really tough to tell it was counterfeit without an Archives letter saying how that serial number frame left the factory.

The Viper had an aluminum frame, so determining authenticity should be straightforward once the gun is in hand.
