    I bought a nice used KS5 2 days ago. Shot it in a 50 bird program Sat and broke 48. No chips just powder. I have always been a BT 99 guy or I shoot a Stainless 100. I thought I shot them fairly well but not like the Kriegoff.
    I am looking to buy a couple after market ext. choke tubes, who's do most you Kriegoff shooters like?
    Thanks

    Stainlessbt99,

    I must say that you are a true trapshooter! First time out of the box and you break a 48 and you are already wanting to change it. I've allways found that the Kreighoff factory tubes were quite good enough!

    Harley, don't waste your money. You don't need extended and nobody makes a better tube for the Krieghoff than the OEM Krieghoff. Even Krieghoffs extended tube patterns exactly the same as the OEM. just costs $70 more. Unless you just want something sticking out of the end of your barrel,stay with what you have.

    SBT99,

    Nothing like new/different Smokepole. Congrat's!. Your off to a very good start, makes the purchase even sweeter.

    I have had great results with the Angleport choke tubes. Look at your barrel and find the metric bore size, and convert it to inches. They will want the bore size.
