I have an old Stevens Savage Model 67E. I cannot find anywhere on the barrel what choke it has. Is there a way I can determine by measuring? I have calipers if that helps. Thanks

Thanks oneounceload,

I checked every marking on it. Nothing coincided with a choke diameter.
I did find a web page that said a 20ga barrel was .615" in diameter. It also gave the choke restriction sizes and said a full choke restriction was .004". I measured my barrel at the end with my inside calipers and got .609". I know this is .002" off from the stated choke size but I'm guessing it is a full choke. Does my theory sound right?

You need to measure both the ID of the barrel about 6" from the muzzle and the Id at the muzzle. I would check the .615 number with some other sources. I think that is a bit low for most 20 gauge guns. Your .004" is a typo. full chokes are generaly about .040 in constriction.
Yes, I made a typo :oops: How would you measure 6" into the barrel?
