While I'm not sure about this particular model, I would say it's more likely that the barrels have different chokes. In the days before modern shotshells with plastic shotcups for ovepowder wads, it was common to bore the right barrel modified and the left barrel full choke. After the shotcup came into common use in loading shotgun shells, it became common to make the right barrel improved cylinder, and the left barrel modified, as the shotcups tend to make the gun throw a tighter pattern than if the old type fiber wads were used. If the gun was made strictly for waterfowling, it might in fact have been made with two full choke barrels, as waterfowlers tend to need a little more reach than, say, a grouse hunter. A gunsmith should be able to determine what the choke is for each barrel by measuring the diameter of the choke. Pattern testing might give you a clue, also. Hang a large piece of paper on a backstop 20 or 25 yards away. Put a 1 inch "bullseye" in the middle of it with a marker or stick on bullseye. Shoot one shot with each barrel, each at a clean target, using the circle or bullseye as an aiming point. Comparing the pattern spread will tell you if they're the same choke. The denser the pattern, the tighter the choke. .

If it is a 12 gauge it should have a full choke on the left barrel and modified on the right barrel. Take a dime and see if it will fit in the barrel. A dime will not fit in a 12 gauge full choke barrel.

If it is a 410 like mine then they are both full otherwise they would be diffetent like IMP and Mod. or Mad and Full.

My 311-h in 12 ga x 2-3/4" & 3" has a full choke barrel on the right, and a mod choke barrel on the left. Yours should be the same. Most fixed choke double-barreled shotguns larger than .410 have different chokes on the barrels, so you can shoot for the pattern you need for the range you need. If you look really closely, you will notice on the 311 series H, one of the last 311 series made, that they even regulated the barrels for different ranges, and that your full choke barrel points slightly higher than the mod choke, to center the pattern on the sight post at a longer range. Cool, huh?

Are both barrels on a Stevens 311 h full choke?

You can get a choke gauge at any gun shop. However- some of the older guns give a slightly off reading due to wear. A dime should fit tightly in a full choke barrell. "Old hand" way of checking. Break open the gun as if loading. Choke should be stamped on the inside just below where the shell would go.. Solo

What is the value of a 410 Stevens Model 311H double barrel shotgun?

A SxS in useable but not like-new condition will bring between $100 and $250. A 20 gauge or .410 will be in the mid to upper part of that range and a 12 or 16 gauge in the lower to middle part. I have a 12 ga double barrel and a 410 ga double barrel, both Stevens model 311H Series in excellent condition. I have saw the 410 ga priced as high as $600 at several gun shows. The 12 ga at around $400. . Ken.....

Why does your Remington SPR310 fire both barrels at once?

It fires both barrels because it isn't clean. The stock needs to be removed and the internals need a good blasting with cleaner and compressed air.
