the previous post was correct, but many people have, over the years, have had thier guns bored/reamed out to be other diameters...

Always check with a dial idicator

I'm trying to settle an argument between a buddy and I he indicated all the new Browning Gold shotguns have the Invector Plus choke tubes, I have a new Classic Hunter and the tubes look like the standard Invector choke tubes not the Invector Plus. All the material that came with the shotgun refer to backbored barrels etc etc. But in my gut it sure does look like the standard Browning tubes.

Thanks MarlandS.

I recently picked up a new 2003 production 16 ga 28 inch Citori Lightning. Actually, it's still on layaway, but as soon as I scrape together the rest of the coin, I'll pick it up. Found it at a small independent shop. He had the price marked down twice. Guess it had been sitting on the shelf a while - go figure. Couldn't resist the buy.

Anyway, I'd like to get a skeet choke for it. He tells me that he can't get one. Any ideas on where the best place to find one would be? I don't even know if it's an invector or invector plus. Wish it was in my hands right now.

As long as I'm at it I wouldn't mind picking up a skeet choke for my 20 ga Citori Upland Special. I know that's an Invector. It was made in 1990. I use it a lot for bunnies in tight cover. Wouldn't mind fanning the lead out a bit more.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks. Mike

Top Row, Middle Choke.


I don't think the 16 gauge is made in Invector+, only Invector.

Thanks jlp. Should I expect all the 16 ga skeet chokes to extend beyond the barrel?

If you buy the Trulock Precision Hunter, they will extend beyond the barrel. This is a good thing when trying to remove and replace them.

I noticed that the 20ga chokes are only available in the invetor plus. Will this work with my 1990 20 ga Upland Special which has invector chokes? I'm assuming it won't. If that's the case, do they make 20 ga invector chokes.

Thanks again.

Nimrodx,
Trulock makes an Invector 20 gauge, it is not listed on MPC Sports website.

Call Patty and tell her you'd like to order 20 gauge Invector and she can get them for you.
The Pattern Plus are flush mount
Precision Hunter are extended black

Here is MPC's contact info:

Thanks a million jlp. You've been a great help.

Just one last question... I like the idea of going with an extended tube and I've read great things about Trulock. I will probably go with the flush mount on my 20. Just bc it has the little 24" barrels and the gun has primarily become a bunny buster.

As for the 16ga. Obviously the Invector chokes that came with it are flush. If I switch to the extended skeet choke, my guess is I will have to also buy an extended imp. cyl.? I was hoping to buy only one new choke for this gun. Is it safe to shoot an extended choke on the under barrel and a flush on the over barrel?

No problems shooting either barrel with flush/extended. The extended may get a little dirty but that's about it.

I will warn you that once you've gone to extended chokes you'll leave the flush mounts at home and buy all extended.

Can these markings be found on all Browning Shotguns?
Say a 1978 Citori Trap?

You should have them on the left rear side of the barrels, on the monoblock.

At least the older SKB's (and SKB made Weatherby shotguns) will interchange with the standard Mossberg, Invector, and Winchokes. I've also owned a Charles Daly gas auto made by KFC that would interchange with those, and I think the very last S&W 1000's used those tubes, along with some of the Ithaca 37's,,,,,but don't hold me to the last two.

By the way, the same SKB/Mossberg/Invector/Winchoke interchangability exists in both 12 and 20 gauges.
