Better to be safe than sorry, send it in, they can assess what may have been wrong. They can do a once over on your whole gun and your all set again. They generally have quick turnaround so you won't be out the gun that long

It's on the way. FedEx ETA at CG Maryland is Monday. I miss her already :(

Regarding my split choke, I just spoke to Aaron at CG. The barrels are OK, and everything inside and out looks great, he said. The root cause of the split is a bit of a guess, I think, but he said it was caused by an obstruction of some kind that was impinged upon by the follow-up shot. I don't really understand how an "obstruction" could be in the choke ID, but Aaron said they felt the crack began at the dimple (see pics in previous post) about 3/4 of the way from the exit end of the choke.

Because the crack was caused by this "obstruction," the crack is not a warranted issue. I mildly disagree, but I'm not making a big stink. I will buy another LM choke, get my gun back, and move on.

I do have a question for the forum however. I installed this LM choke in the midst of my round, as many SC shooters do. Is there some potential problem with debris or "obstructions" in the barrel that means a choke should only be installed in a "clean" barrel? I really don't believe this is the case, but after CG's theory of the root cause, I wonder what gun OEMs think.

My feelings of CG service are not diminished at all by this event, but I'm confused regarding how this pretty rare incident happened. Maybe it's just one of those unfortunate things that happens because stuff happens.

Anyway, incident over. CG received my gun on Monday, and completed the inspection and pit stop by Thursday. I dare any other manufacturer to do better. Now I just want to get my CG Summit Ltd. back and shoot her again.

I cannot see the "dimple" in the photo, but CG just politely told you that you were lying about what you told them about your use of the gun and tube at the time the tube split.
Did the gentleman give you any examples of the kind of "obstruction" that caused the dimple? I have seen many shotgun barrels damaged by obstructions, and a few choke tubes. Never saw anything like a "dimple". I am interested in what others have to say.
This is not in keeping with what many others have said about CG. I have seen other choke tube sellers replace tubes based on far weaker claims that the tube was defective. The tube probably costs CG less than $25. I am surprised they did not replace it.
