ok once you guys said japanese i found something very similar, the set up of the cocking mechanism, the configuration of the water table (minus the proof marks) is exactly the same, as it the offset screw under the lever on the tang

If you measured around .719" I.D. at the muzzle, and it's a 10 ga. with close to nominal bore diameter, you've got a hell-for-tight choked gun............... with somewhere around .056" constriction. If it shoots where it looks, it should be a turkey slayer from who laid the chunk. And the last thing that gobbler hears won't be in Spanish, Filipino, or any other language. In fact he probably won't even hear the gunshot.

You'll have to measure the bore to determine how much actual choke is there, just checking the muzzle "Only" tells what size the muzzle is. I don't know how much it takes but have heard say that Too Much Choke can give patterns worse than a good Cylinder bore.

The only way to truly know for certain is a pattern test.

Notice I said "If....................it's close to nominal bore diameter".

I knew you'd likely be reading it. wink
