    If you Google Winchester Model 12 Black Diamond, you may be able to find information to help you nail down your shotgun.

    Improved modified is still a Trap choke, used for 16 yard shooting. I don't know if the Black Diamonds came that way, but it's plausible. Maybe shot out by (or relieved for) steel shot in 70's or 80's?
