I owned one and it had its issues, but it is still head and shoulder above the Stoeger.
Aftermarket chokes are available from a variety of makers, including Briley.
Fit can be an issue with these guns - it appears to be hit or miss. Not saying it can't be corrected.
Watch your extractor/ejectors for issues - that's where mine fell flat - the extractors/ejectors were slipping over the hull making removal almost impossible.
If you like short barrels, then 26" should work fine for you. Some of us prefer longer barrels for better swing dynamics, but that is a personal preference.
Good luck, even at that price, you got a great deal
