    I am thinking about getting extened choke tubes for my Browning XT trap. The invector plus tubes I have are are fine- just a pain to change if needed.

    Im looking at the browning midas, diana and diamong grade tubes- any recommendations out there or problems with any of these I should know about

    Thanks RR

    RR, I am currently useing the Midas grade chokes. Browning says they pattern a bit tighter than their flush grade chokes. I think they are right. The Diana grade looks a bit nicer, but the gold on the inside of the tubes comes right out after a few boxes of shells. This bothered a few of the shooters at my club after they paid top dollar for them. LOL. Not sure about your other choice there. I stayed with the midas grade because my 525 came with all 5 sizes so I just kept adding to them as I needed for all my shooting, trap,skeet,sporting clays too. I am very happy with them, and look nice too.Call Able Ammo.com get number. They had the best prices last time I order them. Free shipping and no tax, small handleing fee. Break-em all. Jeff

    I use Angleport extended chokes.They pattern much better than standard Invector Plus chokes.The pattern board does not lie.I use these in 3 different guns.

    Another vote for Angle Port. The best I have found.

    I bought the Carlson extended chokes from Brownells for my XT. Have been very happy with the quality, performance, and price of these chokes.

    I think that both the Midas and Diana are made by Briley. Also the constrictions are different than the factory flush chokes.

    Bob, I checked out Able Ammo's website and they have all three of your chokes!!! They told me when I bought the Midas grades that Briley made these chokes for Browning and had the same line in Briley's name as well, for a few dollars less. So without asking I would assume that all three of these chokes are made from Briley. I do not think that anyone on this site will disagree with me when I say that they are the biggest maker of shotgun choke tubes. I happen to think the best as well. But with that said, I'm sure several others are just as good as well. Take your pick. Diamond grade $70 each,Diana grade $60 each, Midas grade $50 each. At current prices from Able Ammo. Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff

    Wright's chokes. My experience is that they throw a great even pattern.
