Don’t buyBrownings!
Or get aftermarket chokes!

The only Browning O/U I've purchased in the last 15 years is a 725 Sporting 20 ga. The factory chokes it came with measure as such:

Sk - .005" constriction
IC - .007"
Mod - .012"
IM - .017"
Full - .025"

Not sure if that constitutes "bad chokes". The only other chokes I've bought for it were two other Browning flush skeet chokes that also are .005" constriction. I use it mostly for skeet shooting and the factory flush skeet chokes grind up the targets.

Bet you can't shoot the difference in the chokes.

Each shotgun manufacturer seems to have their own idea of what chokes should be. Last year I bought a Remington 1100 American Classic, and it came with a few flush chokes. I knew I'd wind up getting some extended ones, but when I first got the gun I shot it with the factory supplied tubes. The IC measured .007, but let me tell you that choke crushed targets out to 40 yards much to my amazement.

The shotgun manufacturers chokes may not be to spec, but there sure seems to be a method to their madness.
