Yo bdog,

You might think about buying some of those Teague chokes that Nicky has. They would spice up your Zoli really nicely. And I got an extra denture cleaner that I could sell you. Your wife could also use the denture cleaner for cleaning her jewelry as well.

It is dirty, but the quality of the breaks improves a lot with the Teague ports in my opinion...


I never realized that.

Try spraying one of your Ported choke tubes with the PAM vegetable oil prior to shooting, and compare the build up afterwards to the other chokes you’ve equally used that day. It does make a difference.

The denture cleaner can make them look like new after years of use.

All joking aside, those really are nice looking CT’s !

Hey Nick,

Cleaning the ports on those chokes could be a real pain — how do you deal with that? They sure do have a lot of visual appeal, but those particular ports look like real powder residue snot catchers to me.

When I had some ported chokes, I did the following: When I got home I would hit them with some gun oil, and let ‘um sit for a bit. Then I would rub them clean with a rag, and put them in an ultra-sonic denture cleaner with dish washer soap (don’t use regular dish soap as it will foam over) for 15 minutes or so. Took them out and dried them off with my air compressor hose after that. Then, let them stand out in the air on my work bench.

Right before leave for my next shoot, I’d spray the ported end of the CT’s down with PAM vegetable oil to lessen the sticking of the black residue to come when shooting. The threads got some gun oil. The PAM really helps, BTW.

Worked really well, but it was a PIA to keep up with. I detested looking at dirty ported chokes when they’re in my gun.

You can get your dentist to order you a dentures cleaner. They hold about 5 or 6 chokes at a time, and cost about $225.

You don't need a pricey specific cleaner for dentures. Ultrasonic cleaners for all kinds of purposes are all over the internet. Amazon has a ton of them. Prices can be as low as $30 or even less. They may not have the "oomph" of a $225 model, but they should work fine for chokes.

Let me recommend pointed cotton swabs and pipe cleaners. Both should make cleaning the ports much easier. Just search "precision cotton swabs" on Amazon. Tons of choices. And the pipe cleaners are readily available too. Both of these items make all types of gun cleaning chores much easier, like getting under the ejectors of an O/U gun when you don't want to take them out for a more detailed cleaning.

If you’d use a high quality ultra-sonic like the one I mention, and then some compressed air afterwards, you wouldn’t need to screw around with those “precision cotton swabs” and pipe cleaners. Makes for a much easier and better job.

High tech Q-Tips? That’s catchy.

I too have been using ultrasonic cleaners for about 40 years. I assure you that you don’t have to pay that kind of money to get the job done.

I’m sure that lesser ones will work just fine.

Pure gold chokes for me! I like the extra weight on the end as it helps to balance out the gun... the ported chokes are only for wad stripping to ensure that your shot string isn’t messed up by part of the wad not opening.... The ports have no affect on barrel jump or recoil...( I’ve run all these questions by the designer, machiner, and owner of the company)

We shot some FITASC today and my buddy was very successful on an 80 yard teal with a Pure Gold Improved cylinder out of his A400. I chose my IM (.25) and was breaking it too with 1oz, 1200fps, 7 1/2s.

Müller”s I’ve been shooting them since the beginning, they stay tight, easy to read. And when I do my part they smash.

I broke some stuff today on a fitasc parcour with a u2 that was out there. I have a brand new set of beretta optima hp chokes that came with my 692, my goal is to never use them. Hell the day I brought my 692 home, I took the stock Chokes in the stock case and put them in my gun cabinet.

Been in the Muller mafia too long now, I can’t get out!!!

My duck wacking gun however has a pure gold hanging from it.
