    I picked up a nice looking Browning O/U 12 gauge shotgun.

    I need some asistaance in figuring out how to pick the barrel i want to use.

    Is there a way?

    Yup, on the Left side of the locking lug Browning marked their chokes with asterisk and dashes . A single asterisk is a full choke, two asterisk indicates a modified choke. I think a asterisk and a dash is improved cylinder. S is for skeet. I hope that answers your question.

    Don't seem to be able to fine any marking.

    But the lower barrel go off first, is there a way to have the upper shoot first?

    Most Brownings have a barrel selector built into the safety. Put the gun on safe and see if it moves from side to side. The metal is also marked with an O or a U.

    Pull the safety back, push to the left and push forward again. Top barrel should now fire first.
