How much difference in weight are the OEM chokes of Kolar, compared to the Muller chokes for the Kolar?

I cannot find any where, where they list the weight of the Kolar original choice tubes.

Thanks,
Mike

Muller "3" = .507oz
Kolar OEM SS .015 = .964oz
Comp N Choke .015 = 1.262oz

Hope this helps

Keep in mind the Muller 740s are aluminum and the 750s are steel. That will make a big weight difference.

Also, check out Extreme Chokes. The weight is just under 1oz and you cannot beat titanium! https://www.extremechokes.com/collectio ... lar-chokes

So are the newer .740 OEM titanium chokes closer to the same weight as the Muller chokes?

Anyone know?

Thanks, Mike

Here's what I got on my Kolar Max Lite chokes (740). I picked two comparable chokes as weight does differ by constriction.

Kolar - Factory Ti 740
CYL - 0.461 oz
LM - 0.537 oz

Muller Featherlight - Kolar 740
U0 - 0.406 oz
U2 - 0.466 oz

Stats say the Mullers are lighter; realistically I don't think anyone would notice.

My story is I loved the Mullers in my Beretta. They were at least half the weight of the factory chokes, were easier to clean and patterned better. I instinctively bought the Mullers while waiting for my Kolar delivery and shot them for the 6 months. One day I forgot my U2 (was on my cleaning bench) and I had the Kolar factories in my vehicle backup range bag I keep for such occasions. I dropped in a M/M combo and never turned back. I liked the breaks I was getting and have always liked a true M for an all around choke.

I would stick with factories unless you need to buy new chokes or a new set (Mullers are actually less than Kolar's new)

Rjb, thanks, that is what I was looking for.

I do like the breaks I get with Muller chokes. Now that I know the weight is not a factor I will shoot the OEM shoots to see how I like them, and pattern them. I can then make a decision about getting Mullers.

Thanks guys. Mike

No problem MHWH

Ping me if you decide to get the Mullers if your gun is 740. I have toyed with selling them but haven't. Also, there are always people wanting to buy the factories. I have a friend locally in need and there are two WTB right now in the other classifieds.

Just like "Rbj " I bought a set of Muller for my 740 Kolar, U1, U2, U3. Weight was not a factor, just liked what everyone said about Muller.
They worked OK, nothing spectacular, cleaned up easy and looked cool sticking out the end of my barrel.
But was not getting the scores I had with my factory SS Kolar chokes, so I switched back, my score went right back to where they were.
Sold all three Muller's.

I have two different style Kolar factory chokes, I think the newer ones are Titanium, and the older ones Stainless......I can't tell the difference when shooting.
