    My brother inherited a Winchester Parker reproduction 28ga. 2 barrel set. One set is marked full/mod. The other set has a "Q" designation for both barrels. I've never heard of that choke designation. Can anyone help identify what these chokes might be ?
    Thanks.

    It is best to mic the chokes, but normally the 26" 28 ga barrel of a two-barrel set is marked Q1 and Q2 -- which roughly equivalent to skeet 1 and skeet 2

    Probably a special run of the guns made for some group like Quail Unlimited, Quail Forever, etc. Usually have Q1 & Q2 choke designations. Chokes are likely very "open".

    They're fixed chokes and I don't have access to a bore guage however I think a couple of you have hit on the answer; the "Q" is for "Quail" (1&2) Roughly equivalent to skeet chokes.
    Thanks very much.
