Your factory choke might be good as is. Pattern your gun and see if you need a aftermarket choke first, you might be surprised with the results.

I went to IC or Improved Cyliner with steel shot.

Id use a modified or full choke depending on how far you are planing to shoot.

With my 870 Ultra Mag the IC or Mod choke. BB and #2 shot patterned the best out of both chokes, I use mod 99% of the time when I do use the gun for waterfowl. Please pattern your gun with the sells and shot size you want to use to find out the best

Of course, the first step is to pattern your factory choke before buying a replacement.

I have the same model gun as you, factory choke patterns extremely well out to 40yds with the Kent Faststeel 3" #2 shells that I shoot.
