    Does anyone have both a standard Invector and Invector Plus Browning Choke Tube Wrench?

    http://www.browningshop.com/category/shootingaccessories/choketubes/wrench

    I received a wrench with my BT-99 (purchased as-new but used) and believe I may have received a standard wrench as it doesn't fit in my tubes. The slots that fit into the choke are too wide. I never really thought much of it when I received the gun. I figured it to be an honest mistake and I've had it too long to contact the seller now. If anyone can verify this is a "Standard" tube wrench and can use one, let me know..

    Thanks,

    Tony in Pittsburgh

    The slots are different.

    A friend bought a new Winchester Select Energy, came with an Invector wrench, not an Invector+/ He called Winchester customer service and had one in a few days. Give them a call.

    My recently purchased new BT-99 (manufactured 2011) came with a choke wrench in the form of a black stamped metal key. Nothing like those pictured at the link Tony offered. Looks like they're saving $$. I never bothered to try it because I bought one of the Speed wrenches some time ago.

    The stamped key has a Browning logo on one side and "PLUS 12GA Japan" on the other. It's thickness is just right for the black Browning choke tube that was in the barrel. It's a little thinner than the notches in a similar Briley Invector Plus tube. It will probably do if you have nothing better, but I see it as a 1950s roller skate key. :)

    Tony,

    The Standard Invector wrench says 12GA under the Browning Logo.

    The Invector Plus wrench says 12GA+.

    Thanks, coveybuster:

    That solved it and that's what I figured.. Does not have the "+."

    Bob/Wayne:

    Thanks. I've been using one of my Remington "T" wrenches and it works fine.

    My newer BT99 needs a T full tooth profile wrench,I use a beretta plastic T wrench to loosen the Browning supplied tubes, it was tight out of the box, I do clean it after each use.
