Yes, it is, but make sure you shoot foster style slugs. They are easier to force (swage) through the choke, and are designed for smoothbore shotguns. I like the Remington managed recoil slugs. A 1 oz. slug coming out at around 1250 fps is nothing to sneeze at, and they're very comfortable to shoot. If bears are your concern, however, I might go with something with a higher velocity.

How can you tell if shotgun is modified?

The question can have two meanings...if you are asking if the shotgun has a modified choke, usually it will say on the barrel if the choke is fixed (full, "imp cyl" for improved cylinder, "mod" for modified). If your barrel has interchangeable chokes, you just need to unscrew the choke tube and read what it says. If you are asking if it was modified from the factory configuration, modifications that aren't blatantly obvious (sawed off barrel or stock, magazine tube extension, shell holders, combat sights, aftermarket stocks, etc.), may be hard to tell, like a trigger job. For gross changes, have a factory picture and compare. Subtle modifications may be hard to tell.

What is each shotgun choke used for?

Shotgun chokes, whether they be screw-in choke tubes or fixed-chokes (permanent part of the barrel) are used to control the diameter and density of the pellet pattern at a specific distance. Example: An improved cylinder (IC) choke would produce a larger diameter (more open) pattern at around 30 yards. This style of choke is used for close shooting at upland game birds over a pointing dog. A full choke (F) has a tighter constriction so the pattern would be smaller in diameter with more pellets so it would be a better choice for longer distances if hunting ducks or geese. It's always a good idea to "pattern" a shotgun barrel by shooting at a large sheet of paper at various distances to actually see how the barrel's choke and your chosen shotgun shell load react to one another. This way you can actually measure the results of your chosen combination.

Are the glenfield model 50 and the marlin model 50 dl the same gun?

The Glenfield 50 was manufactured in 12ga from 1966 to 1979. The bolt-action magazine fed shotgun came at various times with fixed or variable chokes. The stock was birch with a walnut finish. 89,883 were produced. All had 28-inch barrels. It was produced in 20ga in 1966 and 1967 with a full choke 26-inch barrel. The Marlin 50DL was produced in a birch/walnut stock in 1996, 12ga, 28-inch barrel with fixed modified choke. In 1997 and 1998 it was produced with a black synthetic stock. I found one reference stating it was produced after 1998, but can't confirm it. The answer to your question is that while they are generally similar, they are not the same.
