Is there a reason you still don't make a U 2.5?

I have heard that you have made them for some people?

Nothing that would do that U3 won’t......just having a little fun with you, but really?

Then a U2.25 and 2.75 would hit the wish list?

Terry,

I agree with you. One of the reason I quit shooting Mullers was the massive gap between a U2 and U3 in my gun. My U2 measured .012, and was too open for me to use with confidence past about 35 yards. My U3 measured .023 and shot VERY tight. I prefer a choke between .015 and .020 for pretty much all mid range shots..... so I went back to a different manufacture.

That is one of the reasons I am trying the BRAIN C3 choke.

My U2 is .720 and my U3 is .712.

My BRAIN choke is .717.

I am pretty sure that the U2 with good 1 1/8oz 7 1/2 will break anything on most sporting clay courses.

JMO :lol:

A U2 with one ounce will do the same thing. When you start relying on a choke or a particular shell to save your butt, you are in more trouble than a choke or shell can solve. JMHO. But, I don't shoot registered targets so what could I know?

You really need to get over yourself.

I would buy a 2.5 in a heartbeat. Shooting a gas gun, I would probably have that tube in 95% of the time

I am shooting my U3 more frequently these days than ever before but often it is tighter than needed. I still probably shoot 75-80 % of targets with U2 which is in my opinion a fabulous product. I think a U2.5 would be a great sporting tool.

I think a U2.5 would be great for gas guns.

I shoot a Ü2 in the bottom a Ü3 in the top, averages out to a Ü2.5...
Works for me :lol:

i'm actually with the OP, I've been shooting Mullers since they came out, if they made a .15 or a U2.5 as we have started calling it, I would shoot nothing but that, there have been times that a 3 is too tight a 2 hasn't been enough, I do shoot a semi auto, so I don't have the luxury of the two chokes.

I assume we are talking 12 gauge here. I have a bunch of Muller’s chokes and like them ... but, if you really want a Muller 2.5, just get an “M” in everybody else’s lingo. The U3 is basically an “IM” and the U2 is a tight “IC” ... at least in my experience using them in Brownings, Guerini’s and Krieghoff’s. The standard “M” is right between the U2 and U3 ... at least in my experience. Just a thought.

Yes and no. The u2 is nominally .12 and the u3 is nominally .22 or .23. So a LM in a .15-.17 would be closer. I did exactly what you said and it works well. Now your patterns may be different so that's why I said yes and no, haha.

No argument with your logic but my thoughts are it is more of a customer preference topic than anything.

If you like the fundamentals of the Muller product (which I do) and quite a few shooters do, offering a 2.5 somewhere in the middle at roughly.018 could be a commercial success for Jimmy. Ultimately it is up to him but hearing the feedback from some of his loyal customers should be good input.

The world doesn’t end if this never comes to pass. But Xmas is coming and if a 2.5 is offered I would make sure to include a couple on my letter to Santa. :lol:

Where does it end? 2.75, 3.25, 3.5 how about a 0.5? I think I would like a 1.375.

Something has to begin to actually end :lol: Just a hypothetical thread and I am 99% sure nothing will ever come of it and that is just fine

If an in the middle Muller did ever come out though the 2.5 in the general ball park of Mod constriction would make sense as many sporting shooters are using something like that a lot for the targets we typically see in today’s game.

I thought it did start with the U0, U1, U2, U3, and U4.
