    Some years back Shot Gun Sports Mag did some tests with a polychoke and they worked darn good.

    No shotgun, or shooter, should have the embarrassment of an adjustable wiener on the end of the barrel.

    I have been using a True glow adjustable choke in a Beretta 303 it is very slim not fat like a Poly choke more like a Kicks or Pure Gold style on the gun it is invisible when shooting and I love it. Instant selection I bore gaged it and marked it for 8=12=16=20 th just a little twist and shoot. I patterns great it works it is all in your head shot a round and made me a believer never took it out.

    I have a Lyman collet choke that can go on my Cutts compensator, and it flat out smokes birds, even on loose settings.

    Got a polychoke on a Win M50 barrel that works good too.

    Most of these chokes have to be taken apart and cleaned occasionally because residue gets between the fingers of the collet.

    I had one and it broke when I put it on its tightest setting.

    pakk, Had you ever cleaned it prior to it breaking. I'm not being a smart ass,

    I'm asking for a reason. Also how come at 70 plus I have to use a damn

    dictionary to spell any word more then 4 letters long and sometimes less! Ken U

    I never got a chance to clean it. It broke the first time I took it out to shoot sporting clays. I don't think I even got half way through the course.
