They are Brazilian. The Stoeger Condor is a Bioto made O/U. If the choke is not stamped on the barrel the only way to determine is to have a gunsmith measure it.

Slugs through an O/U? Buckshot should be no big problem. If the barrels are 26-28" modified would be a safe bet. I would not be inclided to shoot slugs through it.

Foster type rifled slugs can be shot safely thru any choke, including extra full. With the gun apart, look on the machined part of the barrel flast and see if you seen any numbers of number of asterisks, etc. Oftentimes thats how foreign entities mark the chokes.
