Thanks for the info. The gun has 30 inch barrels that a gunsmith used a fixed tool that had marking on the brass tool such as IM, F, etc. This indicated that the chokes are R=IM, and L=Full. I sent a few pics to a very knowledgeable source who said the beavertail fore-end may not be original since there is no gap between the Metal and wood...the checkering goes all the way to the metal. The metal fore-end and action serial number are the same. There was an additional oddity in there was a # 2 under the serial number on the fore-end metal. The knowledgeable source did say that the rib from the under side of barrels to attach the fore-end is designed for a beavertail fore-end.
