    I saw a Winchester 1200 20ga. yesterday that was slick barreled, but had factory "Win-Choke" choke tubes. How common is this with any manufacturer? This is the first gun, of any make, that I've seen that had tubes in a slick barrel.

    For fear of sounding stupid, what is a slick barrel?

    No rib. Around these parts they don't refer to them a plain barrels.

    I don't know about Winchester, but in 1986 when Remington introduced RemChokes in the 870, they were only offered on the 26 and 28" field guns. Most I saw were plain barrels.

    It is reasonably common for the Winchester 1200's to have a slick barrel and choke tubes.

    I guess I need to get out more. Lol.

    One of the youth shooters has this gun and it really looked odd to me. The kid shoots it well as he is a consistant 21-22/25 with it at singles.

    They were very common in the 60'. Not many want to admit it but Winchester was the pioneer of the screw in chokes. They did not invent them, but did make inovations and made them popular.
