It's modified lower and light full upper. Shoot it some and see how you like it. Also double check it with a bore gauge, which should give a good reading because I doubt the gun has been over bored..

Miroku's of that era did NOT follow Browning's choke markings at all, though they do look similar, they do NOT have the same meaning.

Suggest that you simply shoot it on a grease plate w/the ammunition intended for a specific use first. Then you can decide whether or not you wish it opened further.. or simply go shoot some skeet w/it low gun. Are you hitting the targets? Are the breaks good or..? Back at the grease plate do both bbl.'s seem to shoot to the same POA [Point Of Aim]? If the answers are 'yes', you are home safe; don't make further ado of it.

I'd made a similar suggestion once to another person who'd inquired here and was promptly roasted by an individual in IL. Another member got a decent pheasant hunt out of it & they both had a grand time as I recall and it did not invalidate wot I'd suggested in spite of remarks made to the contrary.

Its a quick & dirty method to find out how the gun shoots for you. I'll stick to my guns [Ha!] on the suggestion.

I agree, to the extent that I built a 4' x 4' grease plate to do so.

All I will say is that shooting a patterning plate with your guns is eye opening. Some will be more open than you thought, and some will be tighter. Some will "cross shoot" at certain distances, some will be perfectly regulated. Some will shoot higher, or lower, than you thought they did.

But, at least you will know.

I am not new to shotgun chokes and patterning them. But lacking a bore guage I just wanted to confirm what the markings indicated as other interpretations made little sense. I will certainly pattern them on the grease plate the next trip to the gun club. The gun is for my youngest grand daughter to begin shotgun instruction and hopefully a few doves this next fall. She is already started with rifle and pistol.

Appreciate everyone's help in deciphering the Miroku code.

There's another issue with the Browning choke markings, going back to the Belgian guns: They tend to be choked tighter--in some cases, quite a bit tighter--than guns from other makers with the same degree of choke. Always good to measure . . . and pattern.

Yes it should and does for me as my fixed choke Brownings are IC/MOD. For close work in the IC barrel I use spreaders for woodcock and the like.

I could not agree more with tw.
Just to add that, let the grand daughter shoot the grease plate as she is the one to use the gun. From this you can see what is all really going on with both gun & shooter.
My bet is that she will surprise you & the chokes will be good to go as they are.
As a boy I learned to shoot a very tight Beretta 12 gauge gun. Any choke less than that was then easy peasy.
