I have an Miroku...

I have an Miroku 20 ga over/under bought new in 1968. How can you tell the bore of each barrel. Assumed a mod upper and full lower but some said the lower barrel is always the open barrel.

Expert's Assistant: The Gunsmith will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the Gunsmith should know?

The serial number of the Miroku is 357686

Look on each barrel for markings that include an asterisk (*), a plus (+), or two or three letters (SS, CYL, etc.). If you have to, take the barrels of the gun and remove the hand guards to check. Let me know what you find.

OK - the +- (top) is "modified" (M) and the ++ (bottom) is "improved cylinder" (IC).

I hope this helps.

Thank you, ***** ***** thought the bottom was "full".

Full choke would have indicated by a single plus sign (+).
