    Hi Folks,
    I'm considering an aftermarket choke tube for my 1100. The Comp n Choke looks interesting. Some on this site have had good things to say about them. What is your opinion on this or other aftermarket tubes? Briley? Others? Just wondering.
    Thanks.

    Go with Briley - basic extended chokes (not ported); CompNChokes are, no doubt, good - perhaps as good as Briley, but the porting on them adds no value and requires extra cleaning effort. Best Regards, Ed

    I bought some for my Kolar and they nasty up the end of the gun like you wouldn't believe! I have a Uni-Dot on my unsingle and the O/U and the gas is blacking that area up also.

    I bought Slip 2000 to clean the chokes and that works great!

    I shoot the top tube of my O/U 1st and put a mod compnchoke in that tube. Some say porting doesn't reduce muzzle jump and who know's.

    I had a Briley extended on my AL-391 and it worked great!!

    Good luck on your decision.

    I have both Comp-N-Chokes and Pure Gold ported chokes and they both throw excellent patterns. The PGs get my nod overall.

    I got a set of comp-n-chokes and gave them away. They were the worst chokes I have ever seen. The patterns were terrible.

    My Comp-N-Chokes produce great patterns, very happy with them. I use .25 for singles & .35 for caps. If anyone else is giving them away I would gladly take them.

    I use comp-n-chokes for hunting and competition and really like them. However, they are hard to clean. For other non ported chokes, I use Briley (competition and hunting) and Trulock (hunting) and have excellent results with both.

    The chokes seem to be tighter than factory tubes, they are hard to clean. This may not be good for every one a little 87 octane gas in a metal can for about a hour and compressed air clean them like new

    I called Charley and had him make a complete set of chokes for my Kolar that were non-ported and I love them. They are no harder to clean than anyother choke tube. He also made me a tube wrench to help remove and tighten the tube.Steve
