Poly Choke
  • Yes, set choke to cylinder.
  • Yes, you can use slugs in a poly choke gun i have a mossberg new haven model and i use slugs in it all the time just make shure that you open the choke up to mod. or im cyl or just the most open setting on the poly choke it shouldn't matter the your gun is a jc and mines a mossberg when i shoot slugs in it i use the inmrpved clyinder setting its the most open setting that my gun has just make shure you don't lossen the choke too much or you might shoot of the choke all together (my grandpa did that with his 12 ga. anyway
  • Poly Chokes have a "slug" setting or use Cylinder or Improved Cylinder. They are safe with rifled slugs. Ask Poly Choke Inc. before trying sabots which are meant for rifled barrel anyway and aren't accurate out of a smoothbore.

Pellets or slugs. shotguns usually shoot shot or pellets, but you can shoot slugs. in Indiana we use a shotgun to hunt deer and use shotgun slugs, better to use a barrel with no choke in it. cylinder bore preferred.

NO,NO,NO,NO do not chance it, I blew a 20 gauge barrel up that had a poly-chokeI would Google PolyChoke and ask them. I think it is o.k. with the choke set on IC or Cylinder, but ask them first.

The JC Higgins Model 20 is a well-made firearm. Provided you have it checked by a competent gunsmith, it can handle any standard 12ga 2 3/4" shotshell. If the gun is not choked 'FULL' you should be able to use slugs.
