    Is there any difference in performance between flush and extended chokes?
    I understand the connivance of an extended choke. I'm at the 20yrd so I really don't change chokes often and with a 34" barrel an extended would not fit my hard case.
    I'll save brand and choke size for another post. Yeah, I've been told
    full and fuller.

    Mich,
    My son shoots a BT with a 34" barrel. He started finding his flush choke was loose at the end of shooting a couple rounds. With extended chokes he can check the tube anytime. It also forces him to remove and clean the choke every day. He stuck a choke a few years ago, and I don't want to deal with that again.

    Mich, in the linked thread above, the Teague extended shot better than the flush (though about the same) and the Briley flush shot better than the extended (but about the same too.)

    I don't think a performance difference can be counted on either way, flush or extended, but extended is handy and so gets my vote. Except when it won't go in the case - then it's flush, for me, at least.

    I can tell you that extended chokes decrease the bluing wear on the end of the barrel when you rest it on your toe or a pad. As far as performance, I can't tell the difference.

    The best choke is fixed choke. I just start shooting an 1100 with an old fixed full choke barrel and it delivers the best and tightest pattern I ever got.

    I do find myself - out of habit - trying to tighten the end of the barrel.
