    What is the approximate cost to open the choke on a gun and is it different for a pump than a double?

    Briley charges $95 per barrel, plus $25 for return shipping.

    Mike Orlen in Massachusetts will do a top quality job at about half the price Briley charges. I don't have his phone number, but the above link will connect you to his email address.

    Absolutely send it to a very good barrel person. Opening the choke is quite simple. Opening the choke the correct amount and maintaining the correct point of impact is not so simple.

    I had Wright's Inc. open both barrels on my 3200 from f & mod. to imp. mod & lt. mod. $95 ea. They did a nice job and quick turn-a-round.

    opening the choke is not rocket science!!! you just need to decide what you are going to shoot with it, and do it!! I have done many. I generally start with a little and have the owner shoot it a while. Pattern it and then make it whatever. You can always take out more,,,, putting it back in is a problem!! I have an extension that allows me to ream it fron the chamber end,, guided by o-rings in the bore. I never have one "go astray" usual cost,,,, around $50.00. per barrel. includes polishing .
