Default How About This Query

Has anybody seen or known of a 20 ga. repro with 28" barrels that were factory choked to IC & Mod? I know 12 ga. was but I don't believe I've ever seen a 20.

I can’t say I’ve seen one or heard of one but I know it must be possible. I once owned a 20 gauge Repro with 28” barrels choked and stamped Q1 & Q2.

I cannot recall ever seeing a 20-ga. w/28" bbls. factory choked IC/M, nor can I recall ever seeing a 12-ga. w/28" bbls. factory choked Q1/Q2.

Never say never. I have a set of 28" 20ga. barrels marked Imp cyl and mod.
It is a two barrel set with 16ga. Krieghoff 28" barrels marked ic and mod. The constriction measures .008 in the right barrel and .015 in the left. I have shot a round of sporting clays with each barrel, but it is a closet queen.

Mine was a two-barrel set as well.

In the recent Poulin spring auction there was a Parker Reproduction 20/16 bi-gauge set (Lot # 1090) that had the 20-ga. set of barrels listed as being 28" long and choked IC/M. I called Poulin's on the listing and spoke with one of their representatives who told me he has seen a few of these 20/16 sets with both 20 and 16 barrel sets 28" long and having the 20-ga. set stamped IC/M. I asked if they'd take a pic of the stamps and send it to me, which they did and they also added it to their description. After receiving the pic I decided to pass on bidding because the stamps just didn't look original to my eyes. Maybe I was wrong, what do you think? Here's the pic:

Those stamps are identical to the stamps on my set.
