I recently bought a rem 870 express mag and i was wondering how can you tell if your choke is removable or not?. When i look down the barrel (when it's not loaded) I can see the choke. It is silver and i can see were it starts and ends. It also has these 4 marks at the tip of the choke........all advice is appreciated...................... Thanks

Sounds like a Remchoke setup to me. You also should see notches in the outer ring of the choke. The notches accomodate the choke wrench.

Did you purchase a new or used gun? If new it should have included multiple choke tubes and a T-shaped device (choke wrench) to install and remove them with.

If used and the seller did not furnish the extras, go to a sporting goods store and purchase extras and the wrench. Remchokes can usually be found in Walmart.

Remchokes have the size, full, modified, improved cylinder, skeet, etc. written on the exterior.

Would the notches be inside the choke or at the tip if it was removable?

The very end of the barrel, like 1/8 inch or so in depth.

You need to buy a choke wrench to remove it.
