The asterisks designate choke type and the star has something to do with the chamber or head space......IIRC, might be wrong on the star

is the barrel equipped with a "REM-choke" system?

the older wingmasters and expresses didn't utilize the REM-choke system, but yours looks like a newer model. in order to change out the choke(s) you had to buy a new barrel with a built-in choke of your choice.

that's what that barrel looks like to me.

i've never seen a newer 870 without a vent-rib. it looks like it might possibly be a replacement barrel, or even a buckshot barrel................IDK.

You can always call the company. I've had good luck in the past with knowledgeable and eager reps. :-)
