    Just got a Beretta 687, older model with the Mobilechoke barrels for sporting/skeet/hunting.....it of course comes with the flush Mobile tubes.....does anyone know if there is any advantage or improvement of pattern, etc. by using extended aftermarket tubes?....if so which ones? Thanks, WC

    Three advantges of extended chokes, easier to install, easier to identify, and they protect the end of your barrel from collisions with things, like the cement pad. Mark

    Make sure your tubes shoot straight and throw a good pattern. HMB

    Buy and USE a bore mic. That will answer all your questions.

    History has shown the old mobil chokes(MC) to be pretty good, but you have to match the correct size for the job. Beretta made MC barrels in different sizes - 18.3, 18.4, 18.5 maybe more.

    You need to measure the bore/choke if you're looking for a specific constriction, say .030".

    Better yet, get out on the field and play around; the one that performs best is the best one to use.

    Aftermarket chokes are usually an improvement. I use Pure Gold chokes in the 28" barrel sporter - beautiful patterns, high average scores, and ton's of weight to smooth out the short pipes. Regards, GAP
