Jump to new posts Choke tube cleaning by buzz @ 7 minutes 18 seconds ago

I bought a jug of Slip2000 choke tube cleaner and was amazed at how easy it made cleaning choke tubes. Just drop them in the solution, let them soak for a bit and wipe off with a rag, minor brushing of the inside of the tube, and they look like new.

Thanks! The bores are not chrome lined. I measured the chokes and they were more like Improved Modified and Extra Full.

Jalo, welcome to the forum. Your question is one I considered many years ago, and answered to my satisfaction. I bought a 30" barreled BSS that was also choked M and F. I tend to like tighter chokes than many, so I had the full choke barrel open

Thanks everybody! I'm from Finland. Fixed choked gun is the only way for me so I guess I should be talking about the "perfect" compromise. My hunting will be all: over decoys, pass shooting and sometimes also jump shooting (ducks). The gun

Brownell's sells kits in two screw sizes, 6-48 and 3-56, the minor diameter of a 6-48 screw is about 0.1 inches, the minor diameter for a 3-56 screw is about .07 inches. If you have a 3-56 screw or 6-48 screw laying around you can try it in the hol

SKB is right. The Baker coil sprung ejectors. They were generally used on guns of lesser quality but I have just started work on a 1927 pair of Greener 16b FH50's and they use the Baker ejectors. Totaly reliable until they're not, if you get my meani

Does the gun have to go back to proof after the barrel work? Why not just pattern the modified barrel as is and see what happens before you make a decision? For how this situation is described, I’d pattern the full barrel too. What’s the downside?
