Either way it is normal on most if not all shotguns with chokes, I just checked my Benellis, Brownings and Remingtons along with a W&S and an Escort and they all have a flared muzzle. the funny one is the SP-10 that I just acquired which is reverse. The barrel is larger all the way to the choke then the outer dia gets smaller by .08 thru the choke area. If I remember right Mossy 935 and 835 really flare out.
