    If anyone has experience with Carlson choke's and installation process, I sure would like some feedback. They seem to be a very good and straight up company. Their prices seem to be somewhat less than others and was just wondering how they stackup with the others. Thanks,
    Bill

    They did some work for me and the choke installation was first rate. It was
    also less expensive than some and the turn around time was quicker than most.
    I plan to use their services again! Ben

    Best patterns out of any tubes I've ever owned. And when you call them you can talk to Scott Carlson or his dad. Customer service is a priority.

    I have a full set of extended tubes (skeet to full) for my sporting gun. They work great. What I like is that they still have a 4 prong choke wrench interface so you can tighten them up properly if you want to. They are also made of 17-4 stainless steel and say they can be used with steel shot (I have never tried this). Nice clean knurling, nice finish overall (body and bore), threads are beautiful and laser markings easy to see. Pattern very well for me.

    I have a full set for my A10 American and sets for two trap guns. They are good chokes and what others have said, good customer service. Mike

    I bought my chokes from them.

    Good service, very knowledgeable for questions, and fast shipping

    I'm very pleased with the set of Carlson tubes that I have. I had a set installed in my son's Citori about 5 years ago. Here are the write ups I did at the time:

    Remember that the prices are 5 years out of date.....

    Hope this helps.

    They've done several barrels for me. Excellent work, good prices, and quick turn-around.

    The only experience I have with them is 2 rifled chokes for my grandson's shotguns. The chokes we have are nothing short of excellent, and delivery was better than most.

    We have a 20 ga. RemChoke and a 12 ga. Inv+, both these chokes are shooting 2MOA @ 100. I couldn't be happier, and the boys filled the freezer with venison this year. Big smiles all around.

    IMO,
    Kip
