If your hunting at 20-100 yards I’d recommend looking at a vortex spitfire 3x. I can acquire the target much faster than I can with a scope. I put a p rail on my 500 and mounted it up. No issues so far.

The problem with screw in rifled chokes is getting them out after firing several rounds. They keep tightening after every shot.
I have had one tighten up while hot. I take a quarter or the choke wrench and pinch the quarter/wrench with needle nose pliers for leverage. Works fine. You might consider oiling the threads or using some other product to keep them from seizing.

Sorry to be out of the main subject but you mention putting an anti seizing on the thread of the rifled choke ? Like the one on a muzzleloader breach ? (I use the Loctite 37230 Silver Grade Anti-Seize – 20g Stick)
Since I will test like 8 combos of slugs brands and size, I will do that before installing mine on my 870, thanks for the tip !
just a thought. I can’t imagine it creating any issues. Especially since you’ve used it in a similar way before.

Those muzzleloader breaches(we call them nipples for some reason) are a pain. I left one sitting for 2-3 years and it got stuck bad. After that I took it off when not in use and put it in a zip lock with an oiled up cloth. Then I lost the thing somewhere in my gun room 🤣
