Depends on what it is choked.
Yes chokes are designed to tighten shot patterns.
You can use a sabot in any shotgun, as long as the barrel is not choked. If you have screw in chokes, you will want to use ONLY the Cylinder or CYL choke. Otherwise, you will need to look on the barrel to see what it is choked in. If you do not have screw chokes, unless it says CYLINDER or SLUG, it is probably choked. (It may say Improved, IM, Modified, Full, etc)
Yes, you can. I have shot countless lead slugs through a full choke, although greater accuracy can be attained by using a modified choke or a non choked barrel.
both barrels are not choked
Depends on what it is choked.
If it is not choked to tight, yes.
Your Model 1897 Shotgun was made in 1912. MOD refers to it being choked modified vs full, cylinder, skeet, etc..
Depends on what it is choked and what load you want to shoot.
It is possible to fire a shotgun without a choke, but it is highly not reccomended, and they don't cost that much If you select a barrel with no choke (cylinder) it will cause the pattern to be looser than for a barrel of a shotgun that has a tighter choke. The extreme is "full choke" which keeps a tight pattern out to the effective range. Full choke is typically used for waterfowl. A shotgun that is pressed into double duty (shot for small game and slugs for big game) would work well to have modified choke. Slugs have to be designed to fire through a full choke without blowing the barrel but you will certainly shorten the life of the barrel by firing slugs through a choked barrel. If you can afford an extra barrel, then use a cylinder (no choke) for slugs. Remington and other shotgun manufacturers have interchangeable choke tubes (see link) that allow you to screw in the appropriate choke for your quarry.
Assuming your shotgun has two triggers, you can fire either first. If you have one trigger, the order of fire can vary massively...use a gauge to check the bore on your gun, If you don't have one just use a coin and see how far it will go down the front of the barrel, or make a target out of cardboard to see which barrel is the more open barrel, by patterning the barrels. once you know which barrel is the the more open choke, you are ready to determine which barrel you want to shoot first, and as a quail hunter on the rise you will usually shoot the barrel with the more open choke first, saving the tighter choked barrel , as the game gets farther away.

It can be done... but you take the risk of expanding the choked part of the barrel or, even worse building excessive pressure in the barrel. It is absolutely not recommended, but your question asks "can you?".
Depends on what the barrel is choked.
They used stars to show how the barrel is choked. 1 star is for full, 2 for modified, and so on down through the chokes.
They tell you what the barrel(s) is/are choked. One-full, Two=Modified, Three = Cylinder.
First, you'll need to answer some questions: is it new in box, gently used, or beat up and abused? Does it have any accessories? Is it choked? What is the barrel length (full size is 30")? How about choke tubes? gently used, improved cylinder and 26" barrel A beautiful, brand new Remington 1100 competition 12 ga with 30" barrel runs $1000, but your mileage WILL vary.

Cylinder Bore meaning the barrels are not choked (narrowed at the muzzle).
Can't be answered without knowing what it is choked.
A choke is a small reduction in the inside diameter of the barrel, very near the muzzle. The choke squeezes the shot together, resulting in a more dense pattern of shot, and increasing the effective range somewhat.
Yes. Accuracy may be better in an IC choked barrel, but they are safe to shoot.
Go to Browning.com and select customer service. Then select date your firearm. What it's worth depends on condition, gauge, accessories, barrel length and what it is choked. You don't address any of these. Broad range from 200-400 USD.
How old is it? Barrel length? What is it choked?How much of the finish is present? What condition is the stock in? Broad range 200-400
Depends on how hard u are choked.
