My hunting partner is considering the purchase of a Browning Superposed, with the intent to have Briley add thin-wall choke tubes. I seem to remember a discussion on this topic that indicated many/most Superposed's have barrel walls too thin to facilitate after-market choke tubes.

Anyone have knowledge on this topic?

Has anyone here successfully added choke tubes to a Superposed?

Thanks in advance for any responses....

Briley or Teague can usually do it. I am told the minimum barrel wall thickness for Briley is .035, but they do not publish this and I can not confirm it. They are not cheap.

I have seen a Super with choke tubes that had been installed. If a person wants choke tubes? I would just buy a Citori or Cynergy myself. Thin wall tubes will not allow shooting steel shot through them. I just cringe when I see a quality older gun that has been altered in this type of manner but to each his own.

You might ask Mike Orlen. However, I am with Jiganator on this one I would never do it.

In Australia about 15 years ago, our government decided we couldn't be trusted with autos any longer, so my super once again became my hunting gun. Then about 8 -10years ago lead shot was banned for duck hunting in Victoria. I had the choice of putting away the super or installing brileys.
I chose to install the choke tubes and have fired many thousands of shots since, best move I ever made. It may no longer be a collectors piece (it never really was), but I never intended to sell it anyway. I used it as recently as yeaterday to hunt using steel.

I have put my custom tubes in Superposed barrels that the other big-name shop(s) have rejected, and one installation from long ago is pictured in my icon and in big photo-style at my website listed below.
That Broadway Super is one such gun that was supposed to have been rejected by the others.
