Regarding the "Sheriff's model" of the Remington 1858 - were any originals manufactured with a 5.5" bbl?

According to Flayerman's Guide, the large "1858" Remington's came with the following barrel lengths:
Remington-Beals Army = 8"
Remington-Beals Navy = 7 1/2"
Remington 1861 Army = 8"
Remington 1861 Navy = 7 3/8"
Remington New Model Army = 8"
Remington New Model Navy = 7 3/8"
The Navy revolvers were slightly smaller than the Army revolvers
------------
The revolvers listed below are all smaller than the New Model Navy shown above.
Remington New Model Single Action Belt Revolver = 6 1/2"
Remington-Rider Double Action New Model Belt Revolver = 6 1/2"
Remington New Model Police Revolver = 3 1/2", 4 1/2", 5 1/2", 6 1/2"
Remington New Model Pocket Revolver = 3", 3 1/2", 4", 4 1/2"

Although Remington never made a "Sheriff's model" any good gunsmith could have shortened the barrel and loading lever on a regular sized Army or Navy pistol.
