They're like other chokes. They work perfectly w/in the parameters of what a choke can do.

I like their flush mount Ti chokes as they do what I want--not weigh down the muzzle.

Teague Precision chokes is now part of Westley Richards and they are used by the most expensive and well known British gun makers. For example, it is what Purdeys uses in their guns-nuff said?

There are two basic designs for chokes, pure conical with no parallel section and those with a parallel section after the step down. In my general testing the two perform equally, although those with a parallel section tend to pattern slightly tighter --call it a quarter to half-step tighter-- than their conical counterpart. Other than that, no difference.

Setting that aside, the Brain choke with its double step down does pattern very well too -- perhaps another quarter-step tighter and a wee bit more even distribution than a parallel choke of comparable constriction.

Other fantastic claims of superior distribution or longer or shorter shot columns are basically snake-oil salesman type comments that don't really bear out under testing.

So end of day, pick a choke that patterns around Mod in your gun with your load, meaning it throws a good 75-80% of the pellets inside a 30" circle at 30 yards regardless of what it's marked ;)

If one means tighter is better , then don't use that choke for skeet where looser is better. :wink:

If one wants an IC choke to pattern like a Mod , then get a Mod and paint "IC" on it and you'll feel sooooooo much better.

If that same shooter thinks he can out shoot any old choke , then that shooter is delusional and should ask his shrink to change his meds.

How would any of us know if we don't pattern?

Agreed. Find the choke that throws a consistent pattern to your liking in your gun and with the ammunition you shoot and then leave it alone.

If over time something changes and you are not getting real life breaks you like on targets at the range it might be time to recheck things at the pattern board.

I have 3 sets of chokes for my 2 guns (they are both .736 bore). One came w/ the gun , a second I bought and the 3d I won in a raffle at a shoot.

The Teagues make patterns very similar to the Brileys and the Extremes make a slightly tighter pattern for the same nominal constrictions.

YMMV

I have a set of Teague stainless steel thin wall chokes that were made for my Beretta ASE 90 over 20 years ago. They are as thin and light as foil any rely on a friction wrench for install and removal. They are also serial numbered to the gun. They pattern beautifully and were made with the upmost precision.

I've got some for my Perazzi MT6 that work great. I first went with them because there aren't a lot of options for MT6 chokes these days (Wrights is now gone, and Briley treats them like a custom order and wants a fortune to make them) Even with shipping from the UK, the price wasn't bad. They patterned well, and they seem to be expertly machined. I notice they don't tend to shoot loose like some other chokes I've had.

Choke tubes are choke tubes -if made by a reliable maker, they work well. Remember, patterns are random (within limits), and no two are alike, and that is true regardless of the price of the choke tubes!

In the UK virtually all the time served shooters have used Teague chokes at some point. Most of us have met Nigel Teague, and as he lives within 40 minutes of me I've had the pleasure of shooting sporting with him. He sold the business to Westley Richards a few years ago but keeps active doing some smithing and gun fitting.

No slight intended on Mr Muller, Mr Briley or anyone else but you simply cannot buy better chokes than Teagues and I've never heard of any of them splitting in Beretta Optima barrels.

They are the standard by which others are judged which is why Guerini contracted Nigel Teague to assist them with designing their Maxis competition chokes. That might possibly explain why so few Guerini shooters feel any need to use after market chokes?
