Re: Browning Citori 20ga - year 1982 - fixed chokes -INFO PLEASE

I have an 84'. On the side of the barrel when to break it open, I believe there are asterisks. The number of Asterisks tell you the choke. Check on the Browning website. Not sure of value, but mine is priceless. Hardly ever misses. I am not that good, the gun is.
