AnswerEarly Stevens shotguns did not have choke firstname.lastname@example.orgOn my Savage semi-autos, a model 755A and 775A, the chokes are marked with an asterisk on the rear left side of the barrel. One for full, two for mod., three for IC.
Yes. Slugs are not a good idea, due to potential damage to the adjustable choke. Buckshot should be fine.
Yes it is full choke
The Super choke is adjustable to allow the shooter the ability to shoot with an improved cylinder choke all the way to a full choke. A choke is a reduction in width of the barrel at the muzzle of the shotgun. This affects the rate at which the pellets spread after being fired. An improved cylinder choke is a slight adjustment so that the pellets will spread out like an ice cream cone shape while a full choke sends the pellets out with much less spread. This affects range and accuracy of the shot at various distances. The use is to be able to set the desired choke before taking a shot. A shotgun with a single choke setting cannot be adjusted by the user.
In most cases, the makers do not recommend it. With some adjustable chokes, the "fingers" that make up the choke can be damaged by a slug.
They came in various barrel lengths and choke combinations. If it is not marked on the side of the barrel, you will have to pattern the shotgun to determine the choke
AnswerA little more description, please. I can't locate a Savage Model 77 in the Blue Book. If it is a rifle, the thing on the end is probably a flash-hider, and if it is a shotgun it is probably an adjustable choke. IF it is a silencer and you are in the US, contact the nearest ATF agent to get your 10 year vacation in a federal "resort." In California and a few other places, even having a flash-hider or threads on the barrel to screw one on can turn some hunting rifles into evil assault weapons.Edit by Henry0Reilly - The Stevens-Savage 77B is a pump shotgun and the thing on the end is almost certainly an adjustable choke. The value is from $130 - $200, depending on condition.I have a savage model 77B pump shotgun and the thing on the end is certantly an adjustable choke it has 3 settings; full, modified, and improved. Full makes the widest pattern, and improved makes the smallest, with modified being some where in between.Slight correction: Full makes smallest. Improved makes widest.Full for longer range.Improved for closer.
about $289.00 US
You don't give us the model, so it is hard to answer the question. Assuming the gun does not have an obvious adjustable choke, the choke is probably not easily adjustable. A gunsmith can open the choke (from Full to Modified for example) or can install internal interchangeable choke tubes (costs around $125).
A savage model 69RXL Series E is a Law Enforcement Riot Gun with an 18" barrel and an open choke for use with #00 Buck Shot.
It will either be marked on the barrel as a word or a code using * and -.
Some bolt action shotguns had an adjustable choke, and it is generally NOT recommended that slugs be fired through those. If there is no adjustable choke at the muzzle, your shotgun should be fine. Stay with rifled slugs.
If it is a stock gun it probably has a open cylinder unless someone has added a choke.
These where made from 1955-1971. If in 90% condition about $130.
Made in the 1940's, not a collector item. Value on working bolt-action shotguns generally tops out at $100. email@example.com
The Stevens model 77f 16 gauge pump shotgun with a 2 3/4 chamber, full choke, no serial number, is valued at between $75 and $125. They were made from 1954 to 1969.
I have a sears and robuck 20 ga. pump with adjustable choke on the end of the barrel
Try e-gunparts.com, gun show, gun shop, etc..
A barrel with a full choke.
Many of the Mossberg bolt action shotguns used a removable choke, not an adjustable. Sold under the name C-Lect-Choke, this was an external choke that could be unscrewed with a special wrench, and a different choke screwed into its place.
System of changable shotgun choke tubes made by Mossberg. Accu Choke is their brand name. A shotgun choke is a means of reducing the bore size at the muzzle of a shotgun, to produce shot patterns that spread to a greater or lesser degree.
Depends on condition, gauge, choke, accessories, etc.. Normal price range is 50-100
-- Adjustable Choke -- Unfortunately, the adjustable choke is almost certainly an add-on which greatly hurts any collector value the gun may have had. In typical condition for a pre-war A5, with the added choke, value is around $350-$450. firstname.lastname@example.org
Many of the adjustable chokes are adjusted by turning the choke. (If it does not turn with moderate hand force, it is probably gunked up with carbon- let soak in a good powder solvent for a day or two and try again). They work by squeezing movable strip closer together, or further apart- the tighter the squeeze, the tighter the choke. A tighter choke holds the shot column together longer, and gives a smaller pattern that has greater range.
C-lect choke is an adjustable choke system that Mossberg implemented on their shotguns pre-1977. After 1977 they went to the accu-choke system. The choke is adjustable between Full, Modified, and Improved Cylinder. It is, however, not recommended for use with steel shot.
