Should I be looking for a large shank barrel or will it take a small shank?
Large needs to stay large. Small needs to stay small. Whichever yours is (mfg. date switched from small to large) needs to stay as-is.
Muleman if it is a PTA or a LRP it is in all likelihood a large shank barrel, also should have a red blade trigger and a 5/8th long barrel nut ( 7/8th is small shank). All other model 12/112 are small , not sure about magnums because some are large and some are small.
If still not sure measure, look over at savageshooters.com for measurements or possibly ask Stan Taylor on here.
Look at the nut length like froggy said, it will let you know. 5/8 = Large Shank, 7/8 = Small Shank.
