Questions for Users
    Q:  Full or Modified? 08/13/2012
        A:  Thank you for your question. We don't like to quote choke name when it is not stamped on the barrel because it varies so widely between manufacturers. Here is what we said in out write-up:"Choke: The bore measures .385”. ". My chart shows the nominal bore measurement for .410 to be .410 so a constriction of about .025 is pretty tight. Hope this helps. Lew. 08/13/2012
    Q:  Hi How many shells will the magazine hold ?????? Thanks 08/19/2012
        A:  Thank you for your question. Three in the tubular magazine and one in the chamber. Thanks. Lew. 08/20/2012
