    Interesting that your Polychoke has a slug position. I bought a Sears Ted Williams 12 gauge pump with a Polychoke back in the 70's. I liked it. I liked being able to change the choke quickly. I never patterned it so I don't know how effective it really was. The one thing it would not do is shoot slugs. I wanted to use it as a slug gun in New York. It would spread slugs all over the place.

    The only thing uglier than a Polychoke is a set of see-through mounts!

    Some will say they are ugly but there is nothing more functional. Check POI POA patterns to make sure it was installed correctly. They are well made; dial in the choke you want and they add a little weight out where it's needed on that 11-48. I'll bet you like it if you are a utilitarian type.

    Polly-Choke is still very much in business. http://www.poly-choke.com/ Had one years ago on a 16 gauge bolt action shotgun. Worked very well but mine was sweat fitted on the barrel and could not be removed. The outer adjustment sleeve could be screwed all the way off for cleaning in between the cut ribs. Not only are they adjustable from cylinder to full but everything in between. The ones made today are called Polly-Choke II and they screw into barrels already made for screw in chokes. I have no idea how well the new models work.

    I have a Poly-Choke on my Browning A-5 16 gauge. As far as it being ugly, well pretty is as pretty does.

    A couple/few of things I remembered is 1: They work. 2: They are ugly. 3: The slits are as loud as a ported Marlin to a side stander. Our armory had a morale 12 gage A5 with the Cutt's and the vented chamber would catch the plastic Power Piston wads then you had to pick the plastic out.

    I have an early (49XXX) Belgian Browning Auto 5 in 16 Gauge that has a vented Poly Choke that was installed by the Browning factory. The gun barrel was sent in for fitting. I have the original correspondence and invoice from Browning Arms company dated August 12th, 1948. The fitting and Poly Choke was $14.75, and the re-boring of the barrel for 2 3/4" shells was $9.75. The postage on the invoice letter is 3 cents.

    I inherited the gun in 1984 and I've shot a kazillion quail with it.

    Tomjohn, the best shotgun I ever had was an early A5 in 16 with a modified choke. Deadly on quail, squirrels and rabbits. I'm hoping this 11-48 will be at least half the gun that Browning was.

    Willy - It's a sweet gun - it has a certain "feel" to it that I haven't found in any other. I've used it on quail, squirrels, rabbits, doves, and wood ducks. Once deer season is over, I'll be back out in the field with it.
