Did you happen to measure the constriction ? Iím still of the opinion the roll stamp on the actual factory marked Long Range barrels was just a marketing ploy . But I could very well be wrong .

Craig edited my previous post to hands from possesion.

Never seen one in person only photos.

I'm of the opinion if it has a factory roll marked choke marking it is not a true "Long Range" barrel.

Only barrels that have only Long Range and no other choke marking wether on the side or bottom of the barrel qualify in my opinion if they were truly a custom choking.

Like I said I have seen 2 such examples in photos.

Craig(s) and Will: My M11 32" solid rib barrel marked "Long Range" is choked .036 using a Hosford gauge; SN is 429845 and barrel numbers to the gun.

Did you have that gun at Baltimore a few years back when you had I think it was a trap gun display ?

No Craig - I only recently bought it - you may be thinking of the FN Browning A-5 Special for Pigeons, a 30" SR gun that was in the display.

I don't remember that Kevin and I have ever had a trap gun display, but our pigeon gun display was quite impressive.

Sorry Dave I think I sent that to you years ago.

Walt had the "Ordnance" marked RAS No. 6.

That 31TC I beleive is right as rain.

Llano Bill sold it on Trap Shooters to someone and I never got a contact to see if he minded sharing the choking profife with me.

Will

Here is the other "Kosher" Long Range I have photos of, IMHO.
