What is he gonna use the gun for? If it's ducks and geese or anything that requires steel shot I'd pass on that barrel with the Herters poly style choke. I'm pretty sure it would be ok with Bismuth shot but I'd look into it first. That choke systems intended use was Lead shot only.

I'm with forktender forktender ,

You will be disappointed with a Poly Choke. They were popular in the 20s -50s. Factory installed chokes give far better shot patterns than a Poly Choke.

Determine what predominantly you wish to hunt and then choose the length of barrel as well as the choke required for comfortable swing, balance, and range.
