Most likely it is something somebody put together.  If you want to be sure, contact the CFM records office and have them check the factory ledger records for it.

Texas MacDonald said there are no markings at all on the barrel.
  

Brl being unmarked means it’s custom work, but what a dandy idea!  Over half a million ’90s built, how many smoothbores?  I’ve always wanted to shoot a smoothbore .22 to find out what kind of patterns it produced, but the very scarce factory smoothbores are far too expensive for my humble means.

Are smooth bores used for bird shot?

Of course, in the .22 shot cartridge, what’s commonly called rat shot, I don’t know the numerical size.  Fired through a rifled bore, the effective range is about 15′, but would expect considerable improvement in a smoothbore.

Texas MacDonald said I shout one grouse at 18 yards and one at 15 yards. They will shoot. Texas. 
  

That’s with standard .22 rat-shot?  If so I’m very impressed, & demonstrates the diff a smoothbore makes compared to a rifled bore.
