    I am looking at a used 1100 field gun with a Briley Choke in it. I would expect that a choke system should provide a relatively flush finish where the choke meets the inside of the barrel. In this gun there is a ridge where the barrel meets the choke. In other words, the barrel is tighter than the choke, so it opens a bit as soon as the choke begins. Is this normal?

    I do not have a choke tool to even verify it is a Briley.

    Thanks for the input.

    A ridge ? My first thought is put the gun down and step away. I have Briley chokes in both my 1100s and 391s. These are not custom chokes made specifically for the barrels but over the counter chokes. In my barrels, I can see where choke and barrel meet but see no "ridge." Is there any chance you can have the inside of the barrel and choke measured? Perhaps a call to Briley and ask if this it's OK. Others may know more. Best of luck!

    The way you describe it is normal. If the ridge was the other way around, the barrel being larger than the beginning of choke, you would have a dangerous situation. I have a Perazzi with Wright Choke Tubes and an 1100 with Baker tubes. Both have the ridge as you describe yours. The ridge(s) in mine are approx .005". Marc
