I know it's considered sacrilege to put Briley's in a hammer pigeon gun, but I'm unfamiliar with later English boxlocks. Would it be as bad to put them in a 1925-1940 trap gun? It's currently XF/XF which is altogether to tight for my uses, but I love the gun. I doubt I will sell it in the next decade or more, and it would be much more usable with screw in chokes, but I hate bodgering something if it would effect the value/sellablility as it would if it were a hammer pigeon gun! What are your thoughts?

Be sure you have enough wall thickness. I once had Briley install thin walls into a 12 gauge Sauer and looking down the barrel on the outside I could see tiny bulges where the threads were cut inside. Bothered the heck out of me but few other people would have seen it.

The OP stated that he wouldn’t look to sell for at least a decade.
If the chokes work for him he likely won’t sell.
It’s a user , not collector grade gun.
If he does sell, another shooter interested in shooting, not collecting, would be the right buyer.
