Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 5594


I just bought an old Stevens Model 311 12 gauge chambered for 2 3/4 inch shells. I'm trying to determine the choke on the barrels. I didn't see any markings on them that would indicate their configuration. Did they all come configured Full/Imp. Cyl, or could you order them in pretty much any configuration you wished? Is there any way to determine what choke combination they've got--such as through markings, measurements, etc? Thanks for the help!


The Stevens Model 311 shotguns were sold with various barrel lengths and choke combinations. The degree of choke is determined by the percentage of pellots delivered into a 30 inch circle at a range of 40 yards. Full choke - 65 to 70 percent to Cylinder choke at 25 to 35 percent.
