    Gents,
    I have a new Beretta 686 Silver Pigeon I sporting edition 32" coming my way from Joel Etchen within the next few days. I am curious as to choke recommendations, not just which one but what brands or what types. Of course I'm looking at Briley and a few others, but wanted to see what you recommend. I will be shooting skeet, 5 stand and sporting clays mostly, maybe some trap as well. I use comp n choke with my auto and have been happy, but the 686 will certainly call for something else.
    appreciate your help in advance.
    Tango

    I use Briley mostly and I've heard Wrights chokes are very good. Ron

    SO Around $65 for the extended chokes briley. was just wondering if they are worth it or if any other brand gives them a run for their money.

    I take it that your auto and the 686 use different kinds of chokes? There are many different types of Beretta chokes. Once you are sure of which kind your gun uses, (Optima?) I like Carlson chokes. see link. Mark

    I am pretty sure that 686's take mobile chokes. Pattern the gun with the factory chokes. I was happy with the patterns my factory choked 686 printed.

    I started out with factory chokes in my 687. Went to Briley. Was satisfied with the patterns. Now I have moved on to Muller. Patterns look good. As you can see I am a choke junky. Any of the high grade chokes will do the job if you do.

    686 SP 12g (mine at least) takes Optima chokes.
    I find the Beretta chokes more than sufficient.
    I do use the extendeds as they are easier to change.

    After reading a bunch of stuff I'm considering trying a few of these Muller chokes, cleaning advantage is the main reason. the comp n choke i have for my auto is a bugger to clean. worst part of the after shoot. These muller's are supposed to be a snap to clean up with sufficient pattern. I will follow up on here and let you know how they work.

    Forgot the Wrights chokes before the Muller chokes. The Muller chokes are the best for cleaning. Just a wipe down and they are done.

    I thought your gun from Joe Etchen included 5 extended choke tubes? Do you know if that is true or not?
