ALL ABOUT CHOKES AND CHOKE TUBES

What in the world is a choke tube? Well, for something so small it sure does make a BIG difference in your shooting. A choke is a narrowing, or constriction, of a shotgun barrel near the muzzle.

The constriction of any given choke is the difference in thousands of an inch between the true bore diameter of the barrel and the internal diameter of the the tightest portion of the choke. Confused yet? Let us simplify, the greater the constriction, the tighter the choke thus normally resulting in tighter more dense shot patterns.

Now you may ask, why would I need a choke tube? We can explain that too. Most shooting situations require different degrees of choking. Chokes that are right for skeet are not just right for trap. Chokes required for shooting quail are useless for shooting ducks.

What is choke??
Choke is a narrowing, or constriction, of a shotgun barr near the muzzle. The constriction of any given choke is the difference in thousands of an inch between the true bore diameter of the barrel and the internal diameter of the tightest portion of the choke.

Simply put--the greater the constriction, the tighter the choke thus normally resulting in tighter more dense shot patterns.

Why choke tubes??
Sportsmen know that different shooting situations require different degrees of choking. Chokes that are right for skeet are not just right for trap. Chokes required for shooting quail are useless for shooting ducks. Choke tubes have been around for over 200 years and until recently, the only way to overcome the above choking problem was to have more than one gun, or to have another barrel, or several barrels for one gun. The average shooter will find this very expensive and cumbersome.

Offers a system of interchangeable choke tubes for use in your single or double barrel shotgun. this includes after market installation choke tubes and replacement tubes for major firearms companies' factory installed tube systems. We provide the standard flush mounted tubes for lead shot, knurled short extended tubes for sporting clays as well as our "super steel extended tubes for steel shot" and "special purpose choke tubes".
