If you take the barrel off and look down through it is their Deep lines spiraling through it If that's what you see it is a rifle barrel and Do not fire shot through it . If there's no lines and you see nothing but a smooth surface like a piece of PVC pipe thin shoot whatever you want through it

Ok great, mine looks the same as the one on the left. The reason I was confused is everyone tells me that since it has iron sights on it then it must be a rifled barrel.

But what you are telling me is that it's a smooth bore barrel with rifle sights and I can shoot anything out of it correct?

Ok mine is exact to the one on the left. I suppose i have a smooth bore barrel with rifling sights then.

I did not know that was even such a thing since everyone in the stores answered my question by telling me that since it has sights on it then it must be a rifled barrel. Those people had me all confused. I am understanding much better now thanx all!

I had a Mossberg barrel that was a smooth bore with rifle sights. You will waste your money shooting sabots in it. Shot, buckshot and rifled slugs are fine. At 7 yards it will pattern approximately 6" with buckshot.

You're welcome From what I understand the iron sites on the smoothbore barrel was originally designed for turkey hunting

Do not shoot buck shot out of a shotgun with rifling though. You will screw up the rifling.
