I’ve been guilty of purchasing a number of different brands of chokes over the years , some good , some bad , some expensive and some cheap ,but they have all been extended chokes .
Recently I got given a nice gun slip to carry my Blaser in , but because my barrels are 32in and the Briley Titanium chokes stick out an inch or so the gun struggles to fit in the slip .
It will fit but the zip is stressed when done up .
I remembered that somewhere I had some factory flush chokes that were never “ Cool “ enough to use , so I dug them out of the far recesses of my cupboard and installed them into the barrels .
The gun is now a perfect fit in the gun slip .
The only problem was that how would I be able to hit any targets when I didn’t have chokes sticking out of the end of my barrels and as everyone knows those short tubes always throw horrible patterns.
Well after 100 5 stand targets I couldn’t see any difference in my breaks and I actually shot my personal best score at 5 stand .
Anyone else use flush chokes these days ?
As I was a bit conscious of being seen in public without extended chokes I scrutinised all of the other shooters guns , not one person with a multi-choke gun was using flush chokes.
The only people that didn’t have tubes sticking out of their barrels were the fixed choke guys , and we all know what they are like :D
Maybe I’ll start a new trend and Flush will be where its at .

Ken

Edit - Two Light Mod chokes were the chokes used .

Me too.

My Briley thin wall flush chokes look great and are nicely hidden. And they are supper long as well.

Be careful! Next thing that could happen in your descent into complete madness will be seeking out and buying guns with fixed chokes! :shock:

Everyone knows those can't work! You have been warned.

Extended chokes help protect the barrels...

It's all the rage around here lately!! Makes it look like your shooting fixed chokes and nobody knows what constriction you are shooting!!

I use them on all my upland O/Us. I like the traditional look and if I do change chokes, which I can't remember the last time I changed during an upland hunt, is at the truck so I don't mind using a wrench.

For duck hunting using a semi, I use extended because I change more often given how the ducks are decoying and like being able to do so without a wrench,

I use them b/c they are lighter and my gun is heavy enough.

Teague Ti chokes are the lightest anywhere.

It was a mixture of both :D
But the underlying reason for the post was to remind myself and others that “ flash “ must have bolt on bits don’t really matter much in the grand scheme of things .

Great post - made me laugh. I have some extended and a bunch of flush chokes. Personally, I think the guns look MUCH better with flush chokes on an O/U. I bought some extended just because I wanted to see why they were so popular but I've never shot any better with them than I do with flush chokes and I kind of think they just look ugly. Like wheels that stick out too far past the fenders of a nice car. I do understand the practicality of quickly being able to swap them as far as that goes for competitive shooters, some hunting situations, or just those who like to swap between stations. For me, I find that most of the time a flush-fitting combo of IC and Mod will do everything I need done, except at the skeet field where I just use a pair of flush skeet tubes.

FYI Briley can custom make you chokes that only extend out 1/4” so they can be turned by hand. I’ve know several people have this done with thin walls as well.

Flush or extended, you still need to pattern the chokes you`re using!

I have seen two expensive barrels ruined (ruptured) because the thinwalls were only screwed in by hand.
Briley instructs that their thinwalls should be tightened with a wrench.

Once I heard a top shooter saying that choke tube is a mental thing. He even won some competitions with unintended choke tubes screwed in and didn't even realized it.

Does that mean we don't need all these aftermarket chokes tubes? That's not entirely true, a competition phycologist said. If chokes tubes of your choice gives you the confidence in your game, by all means go ahead and get them. It helps mentally to do better, than it worth have them on.

So, what does that mean to me? Screw my buddies picking on me buying expensive choke tubes.
