Hi everyone, flexible here. I shoot a Blaser F3 12 gauge with extra barrel sets in 28 & .410.
My brother has just started shooting clays and bought a Browning Citori CX in 12 gauge with 32 inch barrels.
He loves shooting the smaller gauges but can't afford multiple guns.
I'm sure this has been asked a million times but what is the opinion on the Briley tubes?
thanks
flexible

There's really only two (Briley / Kolar) and both are equal in there quality. Swapping choke tubes is much simpler in the Briley as they are screwed into the tube verses onto the end of the tube for Kolars. Briley chokes require no fitting verses Kolars which do need fitting. I own a set of both. Briley over their companion series which does not require fitting at all, Kolar tubes are only fitted.

I have fitted Briley tubes in my Beretta. No complaints and if there is ever an issue Briley takes care of it. Fitted tubes require the entire gun be sent in and the tubes are fitted and will be fit flush to the end of the bbls or chokes if you have extended chokes. Also, if you have an inertia trigger Briley (or Kolar) can set the triggers up to work with the reduced recoil of the .410.

Briley makes a great product and has great service.
Your brother should be aware that full length tubes will add significant weight to the barrels and change the gun's balance

I love my Briley Ultralight Companions. Briley service has been excellent.

In a Citori CXS. I use the Briley sidekick 2.0 tubes. I had to replace the trigger spring to use the 410 tubes otherwise the trigger wouldn't reset for the second shot.

Gentlemen,

Briley makes full sleeves for guns also, my L.C. Smith #2, 20 gauge double gun was fully permanently sleeved for 28 gauge many years ago, and Briley did a great job. Even today it works perfectly, ejectors and all. If you are going to have your gun sleeved, I recommend Briley do the job. They also do great choke work, both standard and screw in. They are not cheap, they are professionals at their job.
