    Are the browning chokes good chokes or does or has anyone had any luck with some of the other manufactures? Comp-n-choke, brileys etc.. Prefer the extended tubes. I have some now that are ported and really hard to keep clean

    I have had the best luck with angleport extended chokes.On the pattern board they were better than the browning factory chokes.

    I didn't like the patterns with the factory chokes either.

    Bought a full set of Briley's and I swear by them.

    I have heard the Browning Midas chokes are better and I would guess any of the aftermarket chokes will out-perform the factory ones.

    I would not use the ported chokes. I think they are more gimmick than function.

    I don't know that there are best or worst chokes for any gun as most manufacturers seem to follow the same internal dimensions for the length of the parallel section, I have had equally good luck with both Briley and Trulock. I've NOT had good luck with Angleport as far as consistent POI in concerned.

    I believe Briley is the OEM for Browning Midas and Diana Chokes. I get excellent patterns with my Invector+ Carlson's Extended Sporting. Wayne

    As with most everything – everyone has an opinion about chokes. My experience is that the best chokes for a Browning are the same chokes that I have found to be the best for any other gun I have installed chokes into – The ClearView chokes made by Steve Baldwin of Mechanical Accuracy, Jones, OK. Not saying others are bad - just saying that of all the brands I have tried (many) - the ones made by Steve are the best I have used.

    I like my Browning Midas (Briley's)-----nearly all my tube fouling stopped when I switched to these.
