I have a Higgins 20 with funky choke / suppressor PowerPack. Anyone know if this is screw out or soldered on. Seller new nothing.

I don't know, but if you find out it's removable and reusable, I would be interested in buying it from you.

Mine was turned into a HD model at some point in it's life. 18 1/4" barrel with a pistol grip. I wish they would have left it alone but it is really fun to shoot. I may get another one someday that is unmodified.

There's a good chance the choke is silver soldered on, that method was the most popular of installition. In the factory quick and easy, in the gun shop the same, the smith won't have to cut weaking threads on the end of the barrel. Usually the smith just made a light truing cut to remove any barrel taper, then soldered it on.

Anybody know if there are restrictions on shells for these tubes.
1 inch gap between muzzle end and choke......SAFE?
