    Since us Trap shooters can't leave well enough alone, i figured somebody has surely tried this choke. So does anybody have any feedback on it? I can see the idea but i'm not sure i buy it. What do you guys make of it? Is it the next great thing? I'm not looking to get one, just curious for all the expert opinions. Besides, we needed another "choke thread" to argue about. :D

    Well it looks like it would keep the tube screwed in tight by shooting and might make cute smoke signals when fired BUT what else is it supposed to do?

    Looks like the flash suppressor on my AR, maybe hides the flash from the shooters on either side.

    Looks like you could turn your 32" barrel into a 34" if you install these and add a little color. Even if it doesn't change your pattern, you'll look cool.

    Never heard of this before-wonder if it really works ?

    Another gimmick...what happened to the "Diffusion" chokes that Briley marketed which cost a premium over other chokes...they had rifling in the choke and were "the latest & greatest"....ahhh Yankee ingenuity. Gotta give 'em credit for trying to sell another product to shooters who are always looking for "the EDGE". Best Regards, Ed

    But they are cool looking. I'll give 'em a 10 on the cool scale. I think its designed for guys like me that can't hit the broad side of a barn. We need to look good shooting bad. :)

    Briley's Diffusion choke was a joke. that whole rifling scenario proved to be usless as witnessed by extensive patterning board work with several different factory loads. Im guessing this choke will be another ruse to get people to spend some cash at Briley. I have to admit the sinister look will probably sell !!! Before I would buy one Briley would have to give me one to test on a pattering board, if in fact it worked I would pay their price! An option to return for mney back guarrantee would sell these in a hurry!

    I have a friend that will use nothing but Comp-N-Chokes. They have the slits all around the exposed part of the the extended choke. Whether it works better or not i don't know but it shreads wad pastic. Its obvious from the bits of plastic hanging from them after a round of Trap or Sporting clays.

    They're supposed to shred plastic. They advertise that it pulls the wad away from the shot.

    As far as this choke, wouldn't spinning the shot put MORE resistance against the shot and make it shed energy even faster?

    I'd bet your money it works (Your money, get it?)

    They do not make one for "thinwall" replacement... I could use the extra weight on the end of the bbl.

    Another way to spend your money. Reminds me of the barrel porting craze of several decades ago......

    Well,I guess it would be dependent on each individual barrel. So the way to prove it,is to get a ladder of Briley's choke tubes from the simplest to this one. Pattern them under same conditions.

    I agree with RunGun. They may very well work.

    In the last two weeks my friend sold over 20 at a sporting clays shoot, the sporting guys love them. It's supposed to spin the center shot outword to give even pattern distribution. They are in short supply from Briley. Sold for $70 each.

    The rifled chokes were to stop spinning of wad/load. Now we have a choke to induce spin.

    Ain't marketing great! LOL

    Maybe we should put one in the gun to start the spinning and then one in front of it to stop the spinning.
