Question for the Red Label experts

I am considering one of the older 20 ga. red labels that has a blued receiver, fixed chokes and is choked skeet/skeet. Does anyone have a good handle on how much constriction Ruger considers standard for a skeet choke in 20 ga. Also if any of you have done any pattern testing on a similar gun I would be interested in hearing your results. Thank you in advace

By no means am I an expert but I always thought the blued receiver Red Labels looked classy. Here's mine.

Mattsbox99 Thanks for the reply, are these the nominal ruger specs or are you quoting what is found industry wide?

I have the same gun , never patterned it but I've shot mover 20000 rounds thru it . My average is over 98, This summer it was over 99, Winter kills my score as we shoot regardless of the weather which makes those birds dance. Buy it you won't regret it. It's heavy which helpls the swing also

Those are SAAMI specifications, Ruger and other manufacturers must follow those guidelines.

My RL 20 gauge is a blued receiver model, with fixed IC/M barrels. I can't really shoot skeet with it, but sporting clays is my game with that gun.

"Sporting clays is my game with that gun" That would be pretty much my use for it too with an occasional dove hunt. I am a bit concerned that it would prove a bit too open. I would imagine that if it had say .005 constriction in both barrels it would be ok up to about 30-35 yds.

Well, in 20 gauge, IC is .005"-.011" and M is .012"-.019" so I'm not sure that .005" would get you much... Skeet is game that has most shots under 20 yards.
