    I have a browning cynergy trap gun that I bought about a month ago. I have put around 1000 rds through it and it seems like about every 50 rds or so I need to re-tighten the choke tubes. Is this common/normal? I was going to put some choke tube grease on it but wanted to hear what you guys have to say first. Thanks.

    It's common enough. Use a dab good anti-seize or a SMALL piece of Teflon tape. There are some choke tube lubes on the market, but they seem to be repackaged anti-seize. Just check to be sure they haven't seized up every once in awhile and you should be good to go.

    Are you tightening your chokes with your fingers or with a wrench? If merely finger tight this is common. If you are snugging the chokes with a wrench and they are still coming loose after 50 rounds then the suggestions above are in order.

    I have had the same problem with my Browning XT Gold. I bought "High Temp" auto wheel bearing grease at the local auto parts store,put it liberally on the choke tube threads and have not had any loosening at all and shot over 1500 rounds through the gun thus far. The stuff is cheap and works like a champ.
