Savage Choke ID

So guys, I was given a Savage 20ga Model 220D, for my son to turkey hunt with. It has a 28 inch barrel with no markings other than 3 Inch Shells.

Is there any way to determine the choke or, more to the point, is there any reason to assume it is not a full choke?

The BSA RD-30 on mine hangs over about half way. I guess once you put the red dot on it you could mark and cut off any extra

Barrel is stamped with 26512B on opposite side of the breech

.22 revolver- Young America Double Action H&R Arms Co, Worchester, Massachusettes

here is a handy choke chart, measure the diameter of the muzzle with a vernier/internal micrometer;
http://www.hallowellco.com/choke_chart.htm

if the gun isnt marked dont assume anything, it could have a cut down barrel in which case the choke would be wide open, (cylinder), for slugs perhaps. and dont assume just because the chamber is 3" it is proofed for magnum shells, dont know what proof laws are in the US but here it would be stamped '3"magnum'.

I don't know. I think that some makes and sizes (the EMP 9mm is one) actually start to become tremendously reliable the MORE they're shot.

it is either modified or full, but might say on the side of the barrel.

Here are mine that I have now, a subcompact XD40 and Mossberg 500 12ga



Here are some of the ones I will be aquiring from my father, a Mossberg .22 bolt action, a Marlin .44 lever action, a Sears Roebuck 20ga single shot, a Lefever/Ithaca 12ga side by side, and an unshootable H&R Arms .22 Young America Double Action

I got this gun on a trade and I am trying to figure out what it is worth it is a Weatherby rifle. It is a MarkV fibermark all weather in .340 Weatherby mag. 3-9 Weatherby optics.
It has a small blemish in the bluing near the muzzle but aside from that it is in excellent shape. The guy I got it from told me that he bought it new in 93 or 95 and only fired about 40 rounds through it.
I looked around and I cant find any info on Weatherby optics, or how much the rifle is worth with the scope.

Speaking of Weatherby rifles, what's the consensus on the 30.06 Vanguard? Anything to watch out for? I have my eye on the blued model w/syn stock...

I had one many years ago, but with a wood stock. It was the most beautiful rifle I've ever owned, but functionally there wasn't much to brag about. My Remington 700 was more accurate, and the Vanguard's trigger could have used some work.

I still think Weatherby is the Sony of rifles. Over priced and you don't get what you pay for (you pay for the name) except in the pretty models. They use to be an exclusive rifle, the top of the line rifles back when I was young. They were bought by shooters who also wore a Rolex, and drove a Jaguar or Cadillac. Other than the bling, theyr were never anything special accuracy wise. They did however offer cartridges that no one else had, and powerful was the word. In my opinion, they were the American alternative to a super power double french or english tropical rifle.

I agree. I had one a few years ago I got in a trade. My 50+ year old pre-64 model 70 super grade is more accurate,feels better(although a little heavier) and the fit and finish is better IMO. It is one of the few guns I have I will never trade. It has put a lot of meat in the freezer.
