It's not a Hastings, it is a factory barrel as it has all of the right proof markings and such. It is fixed full choke.
I have heard that factory 36" were made, but most found are custom jobs or hasting barrels.

In 35 years at Remington, never even HEARD of that barrel length. Couldn't be but a handful or fewer of those.

John Mann (gunsmith Remington employs for the Grand) sold a 34" during the shoot for $350. FYI...

I would look VERY closely for a seam, joint, or evidence of modification. Its possible someone grafted a piece onto a shorter barrel to make it this length, to make a turkey shoot barrel out of. These long barrels are relatively common for turkey shoots, but don't sport the factory markings as they are grafted closer to the chamber. What does the bore look like (any visible modifications?). What does the choke mic out at?

What little is shown of the rib, it doesn't look like any factory rib I've seen (taller and a sharper angle ramp).

The bore looks great, I will agree the rib looks different than most Remingtons but professional enough to be factory. I took some pics of the ends of the barrel.

Stampings show the barrel has been buffed and reblued at least once, in fact it looks like it was buffed and blued once then beadblasted and blued later.

Every factory barrel I've seen put the bead at the very end of the rib, not set back quite a way from the muzzle.

I'd be amazed if this was bone stock factory.
