MTM CT9 case will hold three extended DS chokes and the browning T-wrench.

http://www.mtmcase-gard.com/products/sh ... s-ct9.html

If you have more than the 4 (A5) or 5 (725 sporting) chokes you will need 2 of them.

Good Luck

My A5 came with a nice case that holds 5 chokes and the wrench.

I feel kinda like I got the icky end of the stick. With a 725 sporting I got 5 chokes and a wrench and a CARD BOARD BOX!
Guess that shows that Browning likes you auto guys more than us stack barrel guys

I put all my browning chokes in a drawer with some other junk and got myself a U1 and a U0 ds from Mr Muller and I'm really happy with them. I will be really surprised if I ever put one of those chokes that came with thing back in it. I'm not at all happy with them. As a matter fact I couldn't be any more unhappy with them.

I didn't measure them but the way the pattern is the u0 seems to cover from about cyl bore to a tight skeet and the u1 acts like a skeet to mod or maybe a improved mod. The browning chokes seems like the farther away from the barrel they get the larger the pattern gets but the mullers patteren seems to expand to a certain diameter and stays pretty much the same size for a long ways. I would have been better off to have gotten both u0s for skeet but I thought I needed a u1 for longer going away shots but the u0 covers all the shots on a skeet field. They take some getting use to because there different from what were use to but I think a u1 is just about perfect for 5 stand. They cost more but I think thre cheaper in the long run because 2 of them do what it takes 3 or 4 of the browning ds chokes to do.
There

thanks! I'd be willing to try a pair in my 725. I actually prefer fixed choke guns, but they're a thing of the past. I'd like to try a pair of Mullers that come close to IC/Mod combo, which would handle just about anything but skeet, which I rarely shoot anyway...

...now I am trying to find a freaking case that will hold Puregold chokes. I neglected to buy the case when I got them(my specialty skeet chokes).

What exactly is it about them that you so dislike?

If it's the patterns they throw, your opinion is quite different then mine on the DS Chokes.

My DS chokes pattern beautifully and in fact I have compared a couple of them to the Muller chokes that I have for my 325. From the patterning that I have done, I see NO advantages to spending $80+ dollars on a Muller choke anytime soon. With that said, I have not used a U0 or U1 and the one spot where I think the DS choke is lacking is a true Modified or Improved Modified constriction. The Mod and IM DS choke in my gun measure @ .009 and .015 respectively, more of an IC/LM if you will. Next up the line is the Full which at .039 constriction leaves quite a gap between the rest. For what it's worth, the M/IM will handle 90% of Sporting targets that you will encounter. The Muller U3 is where I think you could fill in that gap so-to-speak.

Everyone's free to spend their money as they see fit, but the reasons to shelve the DS chokes because they do not pattern well isn't one of them.

FWIW

Roughly .005 for the U1 and cylinder for the U0

Slugo, If you must try the Mullers then a U1/U2 combo is what your seeking for sporting. For 16 yard trap U2/U2 moving to U3 for handicap.

Jim, what your describing is not that the Muller chokes stay the same diameter indefinably, but rather they fill in the gaps well on the outer fringes of the pattern, rather than a hot core. In theory, this effectively gives you a more useful pattern at any given distance. I saw the advantages when I compared them to my old INV + Briley chokes, however, I have NOT seen the same advantages when compared to my Invector DS Mod and IM chokes in particular (the chokes I use the most for sporting). When compared to the U2 and U3 choke for my 325, I saw no advantages whatsoever.

Your mileage may vary, especially with your ammo of choice.

thanks birdshooter. I checked their website and they haven't posted any images of their new Browning DS chokes yet. Would like to see them before I jump on a pair. And yes, I'll go for the U1/U2 combo...
