The thought is very correct about after sales service, as they leave everythng upon dealer and dealer will not cooperate at the end. So, instead of Bhargav, go for IOF Pump Action and have some reliablity. But, note that IOF pump action does not have a choked barrel, its a cylinder barrel.
I am not very aware of the difference between a choked barrel and a cylinder barrel. I looked online but didn't get enough clarity.
Can someone please help with the difference? For a sparse user buying just for the sake of personal protection, what difference does it make and what else should I be aware of?
Thanks in advance for any advice!

When the column of pellets travels down the bore, it is found that a slight tapering section at the end of the barrel helps keep the pellets concentrated into a more cohesive group. The amount of spread, or pattern of the pellets at the target can thus be somewhat controlled by this "taper" or choke.
Why not read this article to understand this: https://www.nrafamily.org/articles/2021 ... we-promise
Note that the article discusses this issue in terms of bird shooting. Commonly, shotguns that are intended for slug and buckshot do not use a choke, but have a cylinder bore.
