FWIW, some of these of these had tapered steel "fingers that were the last inch or two of the barrel- and there was a slight gap between the fingers. Adjusting the choke squeezed them closer together, or let them go further apart (opening or closing the degree of choke)

Some of the early Mossberg chokes were simply a standard choked barrel extension that you could unscrew to change to a different choke.

Mine has the steel fingers that you were talking about.

I have an old Savage break barrel 20 gauge with a poly choke, I used to loosen and tighten the choke and shoot at the river when I was a kid to see the huge difference right away on the pattern.

And then the river got back at ya in that terrible boating accident where you lost your S&W 915 9mm, Ruger American Rifle .308, 1945 Win 94, Ruger MKIII 22/45 4", Savage MK II, and S&W 629 .44Mag. Oh the humanity!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, lol, actually my buddy and me went canoeing on that river at about that time, and we had my savage single shot .22 with us, he gets up and falls and tips the boat and down to the bottom of the river goes the rifle.Took us forever to find it.

I have one of each of those old Mossberg 20s. The 185 k has the adjustable choke, and the 185 d has the interchangeable choke tubes that screw on to the outside of the barrel. IMO, they are the 2 most versatile shotguns I have.
