    I have been using a Rottwiel Olympia Skeet number 72 lately and noticed the last four inches of the barrels appear to be balloned out a little. It has a set of Briley tubes with it and I have been using the 410 tubes mostly and only used the 28 ga for two rounds. I love the gun but the barrel worries me and can only shoot skeet with it as it is.(fixed skeet on barrel but screw in chokes on the tubes) Anyone know the cost of a barrel for it, if it's still available. Thanks for your response. Jackie B.

    mate i think the olympia has tular chokes, that would explain the balloning.

    I think the Tula chokes might be what you are seeing, are both barrels bulged equally ?

    The bottom barrel seems to be a little bigger than the top. Jackie B.

    Nah, the 72 skeet gun had 'Tula' chokes. The last 4" or so are 10ga diameter.

    The same with the K-32 International.

    It's like it is supposed to be.

    Tula chokes, that is the way it is susposed to be! Was developed to shoot International Skeet with 1 1/8 oz. shot and fiber/paper wads to expand (blow)the shot pattern. Early Krieghoff skeet guns also had them, along with a few other guns designed for International Skeet. I shot a Perazzi with then in the mid 80's.
