26" and Mr Oxner's recommendation I bought two skeet chokes for my 16 gauge Citori. I used I/C-Mod in the past.


There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

Break open compared to pumps and auto loaders makes a difference in overall length with same barrel length

26" IC on autoloaders but would prefer 24" if it was available. 26" Skeet/IC on my OU and it is just right for me.

30" full choke....yeah I know. where I hunt it's thick and it's not uncommon to have to blast through a mesquite tree just to kill one of them little bass-turds. I shoot an old 1100 mag. Call it my timber cutter rifle

Maybe I should change. Shot a lot of salad in the past with no meat on the other side. Not too fond of eating greens, especially mesquite or mountain cedar.
